Ok, now we know a little bit about wind chime parts Halos and what they do. Allow me a minute here to expand on the topic of another wind chime parts, the wind sail art. Below is a photo image of one of my wind sails for an extra large wind chime. This particular chime mechanism has more than one function. One, it has to look good, Two, it has to find the wind and catch up with it, and Three, it has to be the driver for pulling the hammer into the chimes with a force and velocity needed to ring out the chime. When you want to know how to make wind chimes, this is one of the most important wind chime parts when you are making wind chimes.
Extra large wind chime “wind sail” – 24 inch
The wind sail ( I made that term up) needs to find the wind, and convert that kinetic energy of the wind into a harmonic energy. I have had many people ask if we can do shapes other than round and I always tell them yes. I also tell them about the need for predictable behavior as opposed to simply dangling there, spinning in the wind, and not doing a damn thing other than making me dizzy. That is why every yahoo on the planet calls them spinners, and rightly so. So, round is the preferred shape of this particular wind chime parts for the wind sail when seeking to obtain predictable actions in any given wind condition. All of this is really a nice display of the pendulum effect here in Earth’s gravity. When there is no wind, nothing could be more perfect than that force of nature where the large wind chime points to the center of the planet.
I have also noticed that besides the excellent properties of a round shape, that hanging it slightly off center aids the wind sail platform in spin reduction when you are making large wind chimes. I only want this wind sail to spin only enough to FIND the wind. It does this quite naturally and once the face of this thing finds what it is looking for in a wind situation, the wind sail will gladly and effortlessly pull the hammer into the chime allowing the final stage of this energy conversion display to be audible. Sometimes the sound radiates out to great distances according to the reports I hear from my neighbors many blocks away and down the road.
