Wilesco dome whistle with metal handle

I'd like to replace the awful plastic handled whistle that came with my D10 with a earlier metal handled one and i wondered if anyone had one going spare that they could sell to me cheap?

I think the thread is M5? but i'm not 100%.

Sorry Philip, I can't help you, except to confirm that the whistles are indeed an M5 thread. Good luck.

Cheers Kevin for confirming the thread size, now i have one on my new D5 i want one even more for the D10 as they are 100 times better than the plastic ones.
Woe is me

Do you think Wilesco would go back to the old style valves and whistles if we asked them nicely?

I agree it is very doubtful they would, shame really as the plastic ones are terrible but you have to live with them unless you can source older style valves.

Does anyone know what the pitch is for the M5 thread on the dome whistle?

Probably 0.75.
