Buy one tight git.

Metal disc ,drill holes round it in the middle, drill holes in top of pipes sides tie pipe to discs,then in center tie something weighty that will bang the pipes to make the noise.

I might have to start charging for this sort of expertise,lol

Got to be back to Gruffalo Griff I reckon

Living in a particularly wind swept part of the country, any bought wind chimes would disintegrate fairly quickly. I have toyed with the idea of making an industrial grade one but think the racket would drive me loopy. This gong is the closest thing i have made to a wind chime. An old dive bottle with the bottom cut off and a bit of galvanized steel water pipe all threaded together on a bit of rope and hung from an old section of scaffold at the side of my shed. Visitors or my good lady give it a rattle on the way to the shed door, makes a good sound. If you had a longer bit of pipe in the middle or something flappy a bit of board or the like on the end of the rope it would make a good wind chime.
