    Another cheap and easy source for spring steel (and without the sharp teeth on them) is a metal yard rake.

    Also called an mbira (mm-bee-ruh). Fun little instrument.

    wypipo plz.. ur embarrasing your god saturn with bad sound. he likes that though. you mock the creators of this fairy instrument.

    -from Y. Mcc. who made a unique shape, thumb piano with a lot of character and dimension. it even outranked Hugh Tracy TP's. do it all the way. BUY THAT WOOD. cannibalize that metal rake!

    Used windscreen wipers are a good source of cheap spring steel

    improperly made, for MUCH better sound make your "dowels" with thin metal wire instead of wood, as it muffles the sound. The tines shouldnt be touching ANY wood actually.

    for the screws, the best method would of been doing the lacquer before gluing on the top plate, or glue the screws in the top plate before gluing it onto the rest of the box, that way they are stuck in place, and you can lacquer around it. you could of googled what kind of metal to use for the keys

    I use the metal strips inside the squeege in windshield wiper blades to make my kalimba tines. They come in a wide variety of sizes and give a really great sound. I get them from the trash cans if front of auto parts stores.

    Hey Steve I don't know if you ever read these but I made a project similar to that and used rake tines and those work really well, but I love the box cause mine is just a board. Hope this helps and keep up with the musical instruments wood working and music are two of my favorite pastimes.

    Use a steel rake.  One rake will make 6-8 kalimba

    Finger piano?  WTH?  It's an ancient African instrument and it's had a name for centuries.  It's called a "Kalimba"!  Get it right!
