Make Your Own Wind Chimes with this Simple Frequency/Length Calculator
Do you love the sound of wind chimes in the garden but are unwilling to pay the retail price for what amounts to be just a bunch of cut metal tubes? This handy calculator will help you make your own chimes out of a variety of commonly found material.
All you'll need to do is specify whether your wind chimes will be made from Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Copper or other material, measure the inner and outer dimensions of the tube and this page will tell you how long each segment should be for your desired tones, where to drill the suspension points of each tube to minimize the effect on resonance, will tell you how much material is required, and will give a template for helping you space your wind chimes on the Support Plate of your choosing.
