Needing some direction…I have an 4”, 11lb William Powell steam whistle from the early 1900’s that I’ve cleaned up. Everything in me wants to hook this up to air or steam and hear it blow, likely for the first time in over 50 years.
However… it needs probably 120-150 psi and no smaller than a 1” output from an air compressor to produce an adequate sound. On top of that, I’m trying to film a short video of it blowing (preferably over the weekend) and am on a bit of a tight schedule for various reasons.
If any of you in the DFW area have an air compressor with those specs, I would greatly appreciate it if I could drop by either Friday evening, anytime Saturday, or Sunday afternoon too hook it up and hear it roar. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
PS: I’m new here and am not seeing a place to attach pictures of the whistle. That said, I’ve attached my a link to my Instagram account where I just recently posted pictures of the whistle as well as a detailed history.
