    Or make one in to a bell...
    Reg display
    Dog dish
    LP compressor air bank
    Storm wind chime
    Umbrella stand
    And so on..
    Aluminum tanks, cylinders, bottles.-choose one or all three...

    Have very poor tonal qualities and are not a good choice for bells or wind chimes

    give one a try...

    Ah, Ok. I've got a half-dozen Al80s circa 1980s that I've been weighing reconditioning -vs- potted-plants.
    Reading through these responses re. tanks from 1995, I suppose it'll be the latter :)
