I'm sure it is just like the ones on some of the tea kettles. I bought one for a buck at the thrift store just for the darn whistle. I thought I would incorporate it on my UL Kettle but it is too big for my purposes. Maybe I will put it in the bounce box with your name on it ;) then you can dissect it 'cause I'm not cutting up my new kettle; not even in the interest of stovie whistle science! :lol: :lol:

For your viewing pleasure and I'm sure you WILL enjoy this video. I just got at new digital camera and I set it at the lowest movie setting and it still took over an hour to load this clip so enjoy. :lol:

The maiden burn went well..........scared the living daylights outa me..............an anoying hiss woulda been just fine :lol:

For a minute or two I thought there was hole in the bottom of the stove after the 7th long twig :D

I had to have the sound off so as not to interfere with my wifes watching the tube :roll: I suppose it was for the better, I probably woulda dropped a load when the pot blew the cork :DB: :DP:

You'll have to rewatch it when you can crank the volume up. I was startled to say the least! I'm glad i did not have it turned directly towards me. After rewatching it, it appears a load of boiling water blew out the spout! :o

I would try batch loading it and lighting it from the top :D

Where there is a will, there is a way :geek:

I couldn't hear the whistle........could you?

It looked like at least a cup of water shot out close behind the whoooof of steam :o my!!!!!

You can't make this stuff up. The second test burn makes me wonder if I want to try it again! :o This one is going to keep me up tonight :oops: :roll: Full body armor for the third test!!! :twisted:
