A couple of people at the local farmer's markets sell chimes cut from old gas bottles, typically 6" in diameter. Quite pleasant.
Unless you get a stiff wind, then quite unpleasant. Any size wind chimes tend to irritate me after 2 or 3 minutes.

Agree on the irritating sounds These ones are VERY heavy and designed more to be a gong than a chime. If the wind is stiff enough to ring them I don't care to be out there. :smile:

@JOAT if you not into breaking wind with pipes, you could always make whirligigs
I been looking for how to make bagpipes. Figure that way I can have fun, while still irritating the neighbors. :grin:
Maybe even start my own band.

Wow, i bet that glass must have been pretty thick.

Whats neat is the difference in tones when using
say wood, plastic or metal.
Bamboo has a nice tone as well a bunch of sea shells.

I wonder ... if you make a tube that has a clear tone, and hang it at exactly 22.4%, on a steel tube that supports it at 22.4% from one end with a counter-balance weight, could the vibrations get BOTH tubes singing in harmony? The mind wanders ...
Dont know about that but what I wonder is if at the bottoms
of the cylinders of the same length, do they make different sounds
if cut at angles?

I have two shops, packed with a myriad of tools and machines. I like to work with my hands to create things. Lately, I haven't even been motivated to walk out to the shops to start something. I have a serious lack of motivation I can't seem to overcome.

Christmas is coming, and normally I would be out there creating all sorts of Christmas and holiday decorations to sell or more likely, give away. I spend time on Pinterest.com looking at all of the "eye candy," and pick things I know I can produce, or modify in some manner. Nothing seems challenging.

I have the ability. I just don't have the motivation. :frown:
Which Cnc do you have

"Look at That" is clever.
'Art's Place'
'Steel By design'
'Steely Joe'
'Be Steel My Heart'
'Cold Steel'
'Feel the Steel'
'Tin Here'
...I'm steel theenking!
I like those! This is an old thread, and a LOT has transpired since the original posts...

I bought, remodeled, upgraded and improved that store before selling it only a year later. It probably would have worked. I blame myself for my lack of conviction. Now we have this zombie apocalypse to deal with ... I am glad it is off my plate.
