    Nevertheless I'm glad you posted them. If anybody else has anything that just one day falls out of the closet ( or that you knew of) you made years ago, be sure to post them. (Figure of speech)

    Here are some photos. The powder measure is for scale. Little wallet with protect flints and hold tow, a turnscrew, small awl, puller and tow worm conveniently. Side ears keek stuff from falling out. Slips in my hunting pouch.

    9” x 5” to start with.

    Fits my particular needs. I’ve fabricated several like this for my assorted rifle’s hunting pouches.

    The new project is a 50 cal flinter with Rice Allentown 45" swamp barrel, B weight.
    My little old bandsaw is OK, but the table is waaaaaaaaay too small for a 62" maple stock.
    I installed removable extensions on the front and back. The aluminum angle bolts directly to the bandsaw table, with legs just clamped in place.
    The messy pic is is a partial wood removal for the barrel. I mic the barrel and use the smallest dimension for the max I can take out with a router going parallel with the stock. I also use the same dimension for calculating my depth. The bit is just a half round so I have to also compensate for that, by staying a little high with the router.

    I can't remember which specific forum on here, but a couple months ago I saw someone talk about a 55" swamp barrel. Not you, was it?

    Barely got any interest in the flintlock section so I'll put it here. Seems like the majority of interest here is on modern reproduction stuff and hand made guns made by some very talented folks today. Antiques, not so much. Nepal Brown Bess "kit" from IMA. A lot of work removing rust, fitting 200+ year old parts to a modern reproduction stock made in India, having to fix worn and broken stuff, etc. Will proof the barrel by firing remotely with cannon fuse prior to actually shooting it and then I will likely only shoot it on rare occasions with reduced loads but I have no interest in owning anything that isn't functional. My original post showing the condition as received. https://www.muzzleloadingforum.com/threads/nepal-brown-bess-from-ima.114570/#post-1564346
