I think I'll hold off until I get some rods and practice a little on some bottles before I dive into a final weld of the whistle.

I like how the whistle sounds


Now you need to modify one to blow out the stove when it has reached a boil. It alerts you AND conserves fuel! :lol:

Nice job!

Now that would be super nice!!!! :D

Wouldn't it just take an extension hose on the whistle? :lol:

Hey, works just like the commercial kettles, I like it :D It's better than the one I found, yours just sits on top and the weight of it is sufficient to make it work. Nice work getting the whistle off the thrift store kettle and applying it to the Snapple aluminum bottle.

You can get the stove to bloom faster by lighting the center instead of the edge where the fiberglass is and in a few seconds the top jets will ignite. The fiberglass is what holds the pot support firmly in place to the stove. It wound up being a secondary asset for the insured ignition when putting a cold pot of water on. Everything about the stove worked out well. Most excellent for small diameter mugs/pots.

Thanks RR for furthering the research on the use of whistles on small recycled containers that can be used for heating water. Always nice to have and added feature to a boiling pot. :D

I found this kettle whistle at the bottom of a pile of pots and pans at a thrift store about 2 weeks ago. I tried it out on top of the energy drink bottle and it works great. I think it cost me 15 cents. The thrift store sells most everything by the pound.(located in Madison, Wisconsin.)
