    Wooden (tube liner)Signal Cannon

    There is also the problem of getting a sturdy vent into the barrel in a secure fashion. This is an all wooden gun barrel but I would never consider trying to make it shoot. There are just too many safety variables that would have to be overcome. The barrel is 36" long Zulu

    Once you get passed the thought of loaning something so valuable, can you even imagine the liability involved? No one in their right mind would do it. :youcrazy: Zulu

    2nd Model Prarie Carriage

    Riverrat, The best thing you can do is invest a few bucks in Antique Ordnance Publishers drawing for a #1 carriage. You will then have full detail on every item on that carriage. There is a lot involved in a carriage like that. You get out of it only what you are willing to invest in it. I am...

    Another naval carriage

    He is one that is even smaller. It is for an 11" long barrel. The carriage is only 7 1/2" long and is also made of walnut. This is the smallest carriage I have made. Zulu

    Garrison Carriage

    Here is a garrison carriage I made for a Brooks USA golf ball bore 24 pounder. It turned out real nice! That barrel is 45 lbs. of brass! I used a drawing from "Round Shot and Rammers" for the carriage. Zulu
