    Coehorn Mortar

    Beds are primed. Decided to skip the modern home depot paint and went with the more historically appropriate linseed oil based paint. To mix up the primer it is 70% linseed oil and 30% paint, boy is it soupy (see the splatter on the flag :rolleyes: ) and takes about a full week to dry.

    FOR SALE Northstar West Officer Fusil/ Ranger musket

    Gorgeous. I wish I didn't have other forks in the fire at the moment or I'd be all over this.

    Brand New, Hello!

    Welcome! COS muskets are great, I have a handful of reproduction COS pieces I've picked up over the years

    Coehorn Mortar

    Agreed and I didn't want to have that as historically they were all hand sewn pieces. And for what they were they were relatively disposable pieces of equipment that wouldn't have been perfectly made, especially when seeking replacements while on campaign.

    Coehorn Mortar

    I'm just waiting on the historically correct linseed oil paint to arrive, which should be here this weekend. I've never used it before, lays on the same as modern paint, just has a longer drying period. If it stinks too much to pain in the workshop it'll be put on hold until warmer weather where...

    Coehorn Mortar

    Finished cutting in the blocks for the coehorn tubes. Fun fact these two tubes are from LaPan, and are sequentially numbered!

    Coehorn Mortar

    Starting in on the mortar beds. Cutting out the trench the trunion sits in, a combination of chisel and mallet, drill and router to get them cleaned out. Top left you can see some wood filler as the blocks split (more than I'd have liked, but certainly still serviceable) so I'm filling some...

    Help ID a Naval Cannon

    It is brand new to me and haven't shot it yet. So I haven't yet played with loads. NPS calls for a max of 6oz of Cg/Fg, I have a friend of mine that has two and he doesn't shoot that much says there is a good amount of unburnt powder. So eventually I'll be playing with loads and see what gets...

    RevWar 3lb Cannon Progress

    Well after seeing @Youngblood post his newly acquired 3 pounder barrel I went ahead and had a great phone conversation with Gillmor. Since have placed an order and deposit for a brass 3 pounder of this same pattern. Sounded optimistic on the delivery timeframe so I'm excited. Until then I have a...
