Repair Kit for Encore® Chimes that have a 8.25-inch top
Has your chime temporarily lost its music? You may need to replace the Center Unit. This is replacement Encore style clapper, windcatcher and 130 lb gauge black string (enough for the entire chime). This kit works for chimes with a top wood piece measuring 8.25 inches in diameter. This style has the Bubinga finish and is meant for our Encore Collection chimes.
This repair kit DOES NOT include the wood chime top. If you also need a chime top replacement, please order the 8.25-inch Wood Chime Top for Encore Chimes.
Download the chime top template here. Be sure to print the template full size (do not resize for your printer/paper).
Here's where you can find chime stringing instructions, along with a how-to video.
Please note: a staple gun is required to perform this repair.
After several years in our Texas weather my Chimes of Neptune windchime wood parts had all started to crack and were weather worn beyond fixin'. So I bought all 3 wood parts and spent an afternoon cleaning the chimes and then installing them on the new wood parts. It took a bit of work but I was able to use the same nails from the old top part. It looks like new and I plan to put it up again after we have our porch roof fixed.
