That is interesting - and it works on any number!

On 10 one can use a 23456 single or a 67890 single on bells 24680 (6 makes 
2nds or 10ths respectively) followed by any 23456 or 67890 single.

On 12 use a 23456 or 890ET single on 3579E

On 14 use a 2345678 or 890ETAB single on 24680TB


I haven't completely understood why it works yet, but there must be a 
simple group theory proof...
