    Cuckoo bellow whistle?

    Well guys, I don't know if I just did a no no but I took a chance and notched my good one and it worked perfectly even after putting the weight back in. So I would say try it on one of your own (junk) bellows and tubes and see what you think. Until then I am just going to wait and see what the...

    Cuckoo bellow whistle?

    No one available. But here is something I just tried. I cut a small portion out of the escape slot of 2 old bellow tubes that both had that whistle when closing too fast. This stopped the whistle on both of them. I don't know if this is the way, but it did stop the whistle. I'm not sure I...

    I'm afraid to admit I have not learned to do a video on my camera or cell.

    Cuckoo bellow whistle?

    Well, I spoke too soon, it still has a slight whisping sound, back to the drawing board. I guess I am going to have to take the top back off and try restricting the amount of airflow unless anyone has a better idea? T.

    Cuckoo bellow whistle?

    I find that you have to just keep staring at it, then walk away and take a break and come back and start to watch it again and sometimes the reason just pops out at you. sounds stupid but it works.

    Cuckoo bellow whistle?

    I am going to experiment with the idea of restricting the airflow at the entry point at the bellow top and the top of the bellow tubes to see what happens and I will post what I find out unless someone here has already tried that. I have had this problem many times before and it would be nice to...

    Cuckoo bellow whistle?

    Well, I'll be darned, taking that tiny little weight did it. And thank you Shutterbug I did not know that there is different weights for 1 or 8 day bellows. I guess just the hanging weight of the lift wire and the movement arm is enough to close the bellow.

    Yeah, I haven't taken out the weight yet, but I will and see. I have never tried restricting the airflow either. Would you have to restrict it by slightly making the hole in the bellow top smaller? I have tried to cover the slot in the bellow tube slightly and I know that does not work. T.

    Cuckoo bellow whistle?

    Hi guys, I have had this problem before and usually corrected it by shortening the lift wire but that is not working on this one. The bellow is making the whistle sound like if you force the bellow closed manually, I'm sure you all know what I mean. If I just let this bellow drop without being...
