wind chime string
My wife started making noise about we don't have any wind chimes on the porch anymore. Hmmm, over the years we've bought some large, expensive, great sounding ones, however the string broke and they were stored.
OK, time to get some string and get to it. ****STICKER SHOCK***** According to the internet, you need 1.8mm string, OK, off to Amazon. All they have is 100 feet for $19.95 + ridiculous S&H as the vendor is offsite. Doing a further search on the internet, that's a good price? A lot of places want to sell you only enough for one chime for $30+.
Hmmm, did a search for just 1.88 mm Dacron line. Got some fishery places in canada which seem very reasonable. Take a while to get through customs though. Will "net" material hold up to a wind chime?
Thinking I might just get some mono fishing line, 20-30 lb. test. If I have to replace occasionally, that would be OK. Not sure about the UV, however they are on the porch, under the roof.
Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated.
