Bellrope adjustment, round 10

The bellrope adjustments continue, with the goal of bringing all the ropes to consistent states:  bottom of each sally set at hand to ~66″ (1″ higher than last April) and each tail 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″

All eight bellropes have now been move up on their wheels, by adjusting and retying their wheel hitches:

Bell 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Tail height set at back 75¾” 76” 75¾” 76” 74¾” 81½” 83″ 76″
Bottom of sally set at hand 66¼” 66¼” 66¼” 66” 66″ 66” 66″ 66″

Carroll assisted in adjusting the ropes on the wheel, and helped retuck the 4’s tail.
