Culture: Wuhan’s chime bells workshop needs fine-tuning
It is hard to imagine that thousands of
or chime bells, the exquisite ancient musical instrument, were cast in such a shabby nook in Wuhan, Hubei province. Stepping into the dilapidated workshop, Liu Younian, the well-known
tuner at the Wuhan Mechanical Technology Institute, said he has seen too many visitors and customers express surprise when they see the factory. The workshop is so small that employees have to eat lunch standing up, and the odor is overpowering.
