Teal & Pintail Duck Whistle by rweaving Jun 20, 2012

Featured Thing!

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

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.

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.

tristech on Jun 24, 2012 said:

lol neither answered your question. i'd imagine there is no difference

rweaving on Jun 23, 2012 said:

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.
