How to Make a Steam Whistle?


When making a steam whistle, flatten a small section near one end of the brass tube with the pliers then cut a small, rectangular hole in the flattened area with the Dremel cutting wheel, this hole should be approximately 1/4 inch by 3/8 inch then bend the side of the mouth closer to the long end of the whistle up into the hole on a sharp angle then file the edge of this lip so it is sharp on the end again insert the small scrap of flat brass into the mouth hole and line it up with the side of the whistle opposite the mouth then leave a small gap between the mouth edge that is not filed sharp and the scrap piece also solder the scrap to the inside of the whistle again flip the whistle over so the mouth is facing down then drill a small hole using the small drill bit on the opposite side of the mouth between the scrap of brass and the end of the whistle , then all the work done on the whistle thus far should have been done on the same end finally place the small brass tube over the drilled hole and solder in place then solder the other side of the small brass tube to your steam source.
