Thanks Den-

I have two things on my "wish list" (about 100 actually, but that is another story) that I would like to make.
One is the steam launch detailed in this magazine article:


And the other is a nice two or four chime steam whistle about 48" in length.

Anyone have good plans for a large 4-chime steam whistle?

Here is an article about steam whistles from a public domain book.
