Wind Chimes Made of Valve Handles

Sherwood made these valve handles. I was calling them tap handles but their proper name is valve handles.

Some of these date from the fifties, heavy, clunky things that inevitably have SHERWOOD stamped on them and also directional arrows.

Above is part of what I think was a rear projection TV. There was a large, thick mirror that was partially shattered when I found this at the side of the road. I completed shattering the glass using a wooden box and a hammer and how have a bucket of mirror shards which might come in handy for a design at some point. Probably best to wait for spring to work with bits of mirror.
