    Re: Whistle, idea from Stokes Stomp

    I made a couple more today using the steps that Richard described, which went very well. Here are a couple of extra thoughts.

    1. Richard is using smaller jaws on his lathe, better to grab smaller stock. Using the same jaw chuck that is on the outreach trailer, I have too use stock that is 2" square to get a solid grip. We may need to purchase a couple of these to move forward, or possibly additional jaw chucks to prevent swapping jaws during an event.

    2. depending on how deep the hole is drilled in the blank these would need to be 5-5.5" long if drilled 3.5" deep, in order to give some safety factor in keeping hands and tools away from the spinning chuck.

    3. A jig can easily be setup to cut out the 45 deg section, i put mine 3/4" from the drilled end.

    I spent between 10-15 minutes each, including cutting the blank to length and cutting the section. Setting a couple of jigs on mitersaw and bandsaw, these can be knocked out fast when prepping for an Outreach event.

    Drilling the hole will need to be closely linked with the stock available for the thistle, and may need to be done on-site as part of the event.

    One lathe could be setup dedicated to the whistle. There is not a miter Saw on the trailer. The bandsaw will have to do.

    They might have to come with a warning label.

    The blanks would be processed before the event just like we do now with the saber blanks.

    No need for miter saw on the trailer.

    Re: Whistle, idea from Stokes Stomp

    I would recommend cutting them to length and cutting the notch as a standard preparation.

    i agree. As i mentioned, easily done with a stop block for miter saw, and simple jig on bandsaw.

    Thanks Dirk. I'm up for giving it a try Saturday, and yes, well aware it is Saturday only. My response about Sunday was for Richard, who offered to get together this weekend.

    I'll check the trailer this morning to see if there may be small jaws there already.

    I checked all drawers in the tool cabinet, i did not find any jaws. I did run across 2-3 cone live centers.

    The cone live centers will come in handy for this.

    Re: Whistle, idea from Stokes Stomp

    I prepped 23-24 blanks yesterday, in case we have some time to try it out this weekend.



    These were ripped to 1"x1", then cut to 5.5". Moved over to the bandsaw and set some stop blocks for each of the straight and angled cuts. Spent less than an hour, and that did include turning a sample (i think it is cedar, made my shop smell pretty good!).

    Re: Whistle, idea from Stokes Stomp

    We did attempt a couple of whistles at Kingfest today, with limited success. The smaller jaws on the chuck that Dirk provided worked great, and the live cone center worked as expected.

    We did not have any 3/8" dowel material on the trailer, and I did not think to grab some from my house before heading over this morning. We did attempt to turn material to fit, but that was not good either. We did find some 1/4" dowels in the trailer, and that worked well with the blanks I had prepared. We had to sand down the flat for the insert, as there was not a hand-plane in the trailer. The sander was too much and could not control well the amount to take off.

    Berta has dowels on her shopping list, and Dirk gave her the model of chuck/jaws that he brought today.

    Neal, I'll bring a couple planes that we can use in Hickory and I have some Cedar we can use as thipples.

    Re: Whistle, idea from Stokes Stomp

    You guys inspired me to try making a couple whistles with my little grandson watching for some of the work. I made a prototype whistle as a proof of concept to get dimensions right and to be sure it actually works before attempting to do one with him. He isn't really old enough to do any of the work, but he loves the tools and loves to watch. He gets a kick out of seeing finished projects showing up when he knows that he was there for some of the work on them.

    At 20 months old he is already pretty interested in the shop, the projects, and the tools. He goes to the shop door and says "tools tools" once or twice a day and expects me to take him around the shop and show him what i am working on. He notices changes in the work and the tools and points them out, expecting me to explain what is going on. He asks to hold some of the tools and wants to see some of them run. I made him his own little mallet and some other stuff.
