Bellrope adjustment round 9

The first three bellropes have been adjusted, as a first step toward bringing all the ropes to consistent states. The present goal is to bring the bottom of the sallies set at hand to ~66″ (1″ higher than last time) and the tails set at back to ~76″.

On Oct 17 the rope heights were:

Bell 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Tail height set at back 73¼” 73¾” 73½” 79½” 74¾” 81½” 83″ 76″
Bottom of sally set at hand 63¾” 64¼” 64¼” 64¾” 64″ 64½” 65″ 65″

The first three bellropes were moved up on their wheels, by adjusting and retying their wheel knots:

Bell 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Tail height set at back 75¾” 76” 75¾” 79½” 74¾” 81½” 83″ 76″
Bottom of sally set at hand 66¼” 66¼” 66¼” 64¾” 64″ 64½” 65″ 65″

I expect the ropes will settle a bit lower after they’ve been rung for a while.
