metal reeds

Discussion in 'Habitat and Exhibit' started by kburt, Sep 30, 2007.

  1. Iv'e been making metal reeds for a friend for his birds&fish, just wondering how big a market there is for these
     
  2. I would be very interested, I usually make my own but they are a pain to make, if you can send me a couple pics of yours along with more info such as price and time to make and such and we can go from there. email address [email protected]

  15. Yes, can add extra reeds as requested (for diving bird look)
     
  16. I have also been using different wire sizes, to make the reeds look fuller. With the addition of the heavier mounting posts.

    I just received a couple of Sets of Reeds from Kelly. They are really SWEET! Kelly went out of his way
    to custom make them for me per my exact Specifications. He made them and got them to me in VERY short order. Whether you are looking for some of his more Standard Reed Sets or something more custom, Kelly can Handle It and is a Great Guy to Deal with to Boot! 8)
     
  18. I've been hunting. Will have all new pic's in the next week or two
