    How to make tubular chimes

    Has anybody made their own tubular chimes ? If you can live with not having that silver or chrome finish does not seem that difficult to do and they are so expensive it would be a big savings if I can do it myself. If a novice can make them what is the best tubing material to use?

    Howard Miller grandfather movement 451-030H Chimes lack power

    I am working on a Howard Miller movement 451-030H which is probably a Hemle movement. The clock runs but does not have enough power to run the chimes. To get the chimes to work I have to pull down on the weight on the chime side or give that little cam at the front of the movement a push to get...
