Since our successful test of the 3D printed trigger using the “Black Professional Plastic” material (it didn’t soften during use on the stove) we have made it available for anyone to purchase on Shapways.
You can click on the buy now button above to order one. These have not been extensively tested, so if you purchase one, you will be beta testing them for us. Please let us know if you have any issues with the fit or the material.
This is the kettle that it is made to fit, the model 3501-C on the left.
The one on the right is the more common 2 1/3 quart model, for which we already sell a cap + trigger set. Some people call the capacity of this kettle 3 1/2 quarts, but it is listed as only 3 quart. Note the distinctive shape of the handle versus the other kettle.
Note that these triggers are being sold on Shapeways with no markup. As more people order them, the price should go down.
I would like to order this part and would like to know how soon it would take to be delivered in Lousinia.
I live in Canada and my son is going there tomorrow Sunday Jan 27 for 1week and I could order it and have it sent to him if I can make sure it arrives before he leaves for home.
We aren’t the ones selling that part, it is being purchased from Shapeways. You would have to check with them on delivery timing.
Who knew that a small piece of “black professional plastic” could bring so much joy?! Thanks so much for your brilliant design, which is indeed an improvement on the original and performs flawlessly with my $2 thrift store find. Interestingly, the previous trigger looked like it had softened and melted,
I am looking for the top to a tea kettle for the children’s Revereware
I hope you can open the picture
I looked into this recently for someone else. The children’s tea kettle uses a cap that is about 3/4″ or so in diameter, much smaller than ours for the 2 1/3 quart kettle. So unfortunately, other than getting one from another Children’s kettle, I’m not aware of any replacements.
Would it be possible to get the whistle cap for the 3qt kettle?
Mine just broke (same style as https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0000CBINT/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_3rA3Fb20B5F1R?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1) – I still have the parts; mainly need the plastic ring for the cap (I’ve got some, not all of it).
Love my kettle; but without fixing the cap I may have to retire it after 15 years of use.
The cap included in the cap and trigger set works for the 3 1/2 quart (the model you have) we’ve been told by quite a few customers that have tried it.
