Working gold whistles


#1

I’m hoping you can point me in the right direction: I have a client
looking for a gold whistle that works, she wants it to be heard in
the next room. She needs to call for assistance from time to time, but
wouldn’t even consider wearing a steel one. I don’t want to make one,
just find someone who does. Thanks , Kim

Hi Kim, Why don’t you either; buy a plastic one, cut in half (length
wise ) and cast it,or get a metal one- cut it and make a mold, then
cast it? In either case you will have to solder both halves. good luck

Heika Seppa makes whIstles… We all made them at a class in SO.
Caroline called Wild Acres… They were smallish but not too small and
had a great sound. He got so he could make them out of one piece of
metal… instead of two… Write him i"m sure he could do it for you…
tell him I said hello, the ''whistle girl". caroline… calgang@aol.com

Hello Kim, I have fabricated whistles in sterling before. A gold one
could be an interesting project. Let me know more details off line.
Where are you located?

Kim, I don’t know where you live, but if it’s anywhere near the ocean
where there’s a yacht harbor, go to a boating supply store and get a
bosun’s call, (pipe or whistle), and have it gold plated. A good one
is made from sterling, but if she can’t lower herself to use one of
those, I would think G.P. should suffice. Jerry in Kodiak
