    Captain, You are THE MAN! This works brilliantly. I made one and it is SO LOUD! I have now also experimented with a totally plastic one and although it is not as loud as the tin one, it does definitely whistle. My plastic one is made from some clear plastic from a tub and two milk bottle lids.

    This would be a lot better if you included a template for the shape you cut out of the can.

    Please?

    Hah! This is great! What a fun idea. There are lots of things that are made out of and by the simplest things, and it only takes the incentive to turn that into something you can make unique. I'm definitely going to try this! Then, I think I'll work on a tin can penny-whistle. These would make great nerd-gifts. :D

    I agree with Lemonie. We dont drink much beer in our house so I will have to ask my student pals to save bottle tops for me. Or perhaps try boring old plastic ones. Is the distance between the edge and the blowing bit critical?
