Making Duck Calls Tooling/Kits etc
May 4th, 2022 at 9:37am
 
I am trying to figure out what I need to make some duck calls.I havent ever made one.I have been a bowl turner and a flute maker so I have plenty of tools for this type of stuff.

I have sent a few emails to a couple of suppliers but with sort of sketchy replies or I just havent figured out what I need yet..

I was going to start with a mallard double reed call kit.But I need to know do I need a collet ...what size? I guess a mandrel...what is best or easiest one to use? I am just wanting to get the most stuff from one or two places so shipping wont be wasted.

I want to start with a simple wood but will need a piece of cocobolo when i make this one for a friend so I would buy a piece big enough to make several for future use.Im just in thinking mode for now lol. Thanks in advance!

The easiest way I can think of is this.
Go to a site like PSI and choose the call you want
Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register
Just under the price is a link (a pdf file) to the product instructions.
The instruction sheet tells you quite clearly what's in the kit and what you need to complete the project.

I use Hut Products set of rubber bushing that go on a pen mandrel to turn my calls.  1 1/2x 11/2 x3” blanks drill out with 5/8 bit. I use Echo reed inserts, they sound better the other brands I’ve tried.

If you go to YouTube and search for "turning duck calls"  you'll find a ton of videos showing you how.
