    Great job, I'm thinking about trying to make a Horn for myself. I really like the staple in the bases plug. I've noticed that some horns had staples in both ends.

    Thanks for sharing

    Yes. The staple on the spout end was used to keep the strap in place.. not to hang the strap. Many make that mistake... I’ve not done one of those myself but am Wanting to try

    I appreciate that bit of information on the spout staple, I saw a photo of a horn that had the staple on what would the side as apposed to what would be the top while hanging and this explains why it wouldn't matter.

    Yes sir, I’ve seen a few originals with the metal staple/ wire and a few that had the wire rotted completly out and the two holes were left.
