Description

This bird whistle, which I got from a friend, in intended to lure Teal and Pintail ducks. My friend received this whistle, his favorite, from a craftsman, who has since passed away. He has not been able to find additional whistles of this style for his children. This is my version of this classic whistle. The pitch of the sound matches the original very well. It is designed for calling birds for observation only. I imagine that it might be a useful device in a post apocalyptic situation.

I printed with 10% infill and it works fine. Haven't tested it with a duck yet. I only had to punch out the hole where you blow into.
Made one using recommended settings on Replicator 2X. One tone works the other doesn't. Will probably try again with different infill settings. Thanks for sharing!
Just made one, sliced with Slic3r (infill 1), it works just fine ! ;) thank you for sharing this

Instructions

I printed with two extra shells 20% infill. You blow in the end of the whistle and cover the end hole to change the pitch.

Well mine works right off the printer.  I printed it with 3 extra shells and 25% infill.
Couldn't get them to work. They look good but they are silent. Maybe I can use them as dog whistles.
There could be a few reasons why it might be silent. Don't cover the first hole. Look at the leading edge of the first hole. If this is not sharp it might take more effort to blow. You can try to take some acetone on a q-tip and give it a quick rub to shape it. When blowing it I like to cover the end hold and give a quick breath, while simultaneously releasing my finger on the end hole to get a rising note.
My whistle dont work to. I try to clean the edges but that doesent work. To bad.

Thank you anyway for sharing. :'(
I just came across this problem also when I printed this model on my Thingomatic. To fix the problem and make a functioning whistle I filled the cavity with acetone and quickly dumped it out. After the acetone treatment the whistle was fully functional. I think the problem is small air leaks between the layers. The acetone slightly melts the layers together creating a leak free seal.
Try to print with more infill.

I print it two times. The 1 one didnt work because off less filling.

How is the design different for a call meant for hunting ducks? Just curious.
lol neither answered your question. i'd imagine there is no difference
I guess technically there is no difference. Its to justify to myself, a vegetarian releasing a device that might be used to trick ducks into thinking that their friends are around and then killing them.
But what about the poor retriever dogs that will be tricked into thinking a duck is nearby? This is emotional abuse. :)
The higher pitch note is meant to replicate the sound of the teal duck, and the lower note is the pintail duck. Yes, not for hunting.
Yes, for observation only.

O:-)
