Heat shrink sleeve
High temperature plastic sleeves used for protecting areas of rope, such as splices in the top end. These protect the rope as it goes through ceiling bosses and rope guides and prevent it from catching or being damaged.
Heat Shrink Sleeving
Often constructed of vinyl plastic, this is tape which is stretchy and durable. Often used in rope splicing to keep the individual strands separate and easier to work with.
Jump the wheel
A rope 'jumping' or 'slipping' the wheel is when the rope comes out of the channel in the wheel during ringing. It can indicate a distorted wheel, a problem with a pulley, or a misaligned wheel. Ringing with very good handling and a taut rope can sometimes mitigate the problem if a particular bell is prone to its rope slipping the wheel, but it can indicate an issue that needs resolving in the belfry.
A fastening or join
Striking one or more blows (usually two) in first place.
Sloped boards set in rows in the belfry windows to stop rain getting in, but to allow the sound of the ringing out. Usually made of wood.
Lying behind is when the bell rings for more than one consecutive blow in the last place in the change.
This describes a method rung on 8 bells.
