  • hi thereI thought that this was a great project so I decided to make it today, however, while I was constructing the tubes, I was having a bit of a problem (or so I think). The part of the whistle tubes where I have to flatten them is the problem. I have flattened them as much as possible however when I blow through them no sound seems to come from the tubes. I tried blowing at different angles however nothing seemed to even coax a single tiny little toot out of it. I even tried to put a piece of tape on the flattened part (as you can see in the picture) to make it thinner and more streamlined, but even this seems to fail.

    hi thereI thought that this was a great project so I decided to make it today, however, while I was constructing the tubes, I was having a bit of a problem (or so I think). The part of the whistle tubes where I have to flatten them is the problem. I have flattened them as much as possible however when I blow through them no sound seems to come from the tubes. I tried blowing at different angles however nothing seemed to even coax a single tiny little toot out of it. I even tried to put a piece of tape on the flattened part (as you can see in the picture) to make it thinner and more streamlined, but even this seems to fail. I'm not sure whether or not it is worth investing the time and energy required to take this project to completion so I just need your help in identifying the problem.I am not sure what is wrong though these may be some of the factors: 1. I have used regular single ply cardboard (rather than thin ply cardboard as you have used) since I couldn't find any thin ply, but I now realise it may play a role.2. I have shortened the length of the pipes to 25 and 23 centimetres though I don't think this should matter as it would probably only change the pitch of the whistle and nothing else. I cannot think of anything else at the moment. I just need your help in identifying the problem so that I can take the decision of whether or not it is worth investing the time and energy required to take this project to completion. I hope you can help me.Pls respond if possible. Thanks for reading.

    Sorry, Forgot to add the pictures :p
