Tricycle..............

My neighbor built the cannon then gave it to me. As soon as I get some fuses I'm going to fire it.

A Laser Sight mounted under the barrel would be the ticket (Tacticannon).

Commodore, I enjoyed your earlier thread on this piece and must say I think it's really cool. Lots going on there, lots of questions. Could you share some details on what looks like a very well built carriage? Powder charge, projectiles? Thanks...

After reading this I told my wife we could mount a swivel gun on the corner of our bed pointing at the door. Any bad guys breaking in to the house. ‘Give ‘em a whif of grape’ says I.
she gave me the dreaded “Look”.
I don’t think it’s in my future

I refinished the cannon I posted above just like was specified from the owner (It kinda grows on ya after awhile).

He was SUPER HAPPY with it, I WASN'T....

I have him talked into making some cool Stained Oak Wheels for it.

I Sandblasted the entire Cannon, so if it needs some attention in the future, no problem.

The "Bore" was totally filled with Rust growth.
I cleaned all that naturally... & I feel like I saved another cannon destend for the scrape heap. :ghostly:

It fires .44 cal.
