The whistle is of a phenolic plastic. The same material as circuit boards. In fact it is a wood product-paper compressed in a thermal setting plastic that has been used for a long time in many household products. It is available in very precise dimensions in tubular configuration and great for whist...

Hip hip hurrah

Well it is good to be back to the PWA! And it is good to walk upright again without pain. It is near the end of the third week with my first new hip joint. Why did it take me so long get this done! I asked my surgeon the inevitable question: will I be able to dance? She wisely asked if I could befor...

Re: PWA simular forum?

I never intend to diminish anyone's contributions or insult anyone! I started the original "PWA" without even that name. My purpose was to acknowledge folks who like the use of the whistle in church and personal devotion to Jesus. It was nothing more than identifying them on the C&F and PMing or ema...
