If the low E is flat, I suppose you could pull the bell out a little, or even better figure out where the best tone is, and put a small spacer on the tenon so you don't have to guess every time you pull out.
I've seen somewhere recently that a hole in the side of the bell will change pitch.  Can't recall where, or whether it raises or lowers pitch.  Any thoughts on that?
I read a description of a clarinet somewhere, it said it had a hole in the bell to "bring up the bottom note"

I've solved the intonation problem by making a new barrel.  It's about 1.5 mm shorter than the original.

Now all of the tones play reasonably in tune, though the low E is still Al little flat.  Another smidgen shorte might help, but that's more trouble than it's worth.

Thanks.  Have some Cocobolo that I bought years ago when I was doing lots of wood turning of Pens and Bowls that I sold on Etsy and at craft shows.
