  • Metal FOR CHIMES

    The kid's want to make chimes out of metal. I was going to go to home depot what would be the best metal to buy for a good sounding chime? Thanks for any and all help....

    I've had good luck with electrical EMT tubing. Copper is also very good. Serach the web for all the different tunings.

      Do a search on making windchimes and you will find more information than you want. A big factor will be how big do you want them to be. I had good luck making a set that was pretty large out of steel tubing, and sounds great. A couple pretty good sites are:
