Re: Equipment Update.

Adequate response would be "Interesting, thanks for sharing" . That is all I need to know whether or not I should bother posting any more articles/videos/posts. The responses on youtube are excellent.
Thank you.

Re: Equipment Update.

Couldn't load plug in message again, nice collection of kit, the hatchet is a good size, with brass/bronze barrel on old guns, be aware of crystalization of the metal, not visible to the eye, but in old metal it occurs and can lead to barrel failure, so don't hold them the first couple of times the...

Re: NO "charcloth" Fire Lighting.

Very little interest shown in this post, surprising. Can we assume that this was already common knowledge for the majority of forum members? Or is it just that no one here apart from those who commented are interested in period fire lighting skills? Just trying to get a handle on what people want to...

Re: Leather waistcoat for workmen

Hi there I am still building up my library and references for this period.

Equipment Update.

Just a couple of images of some of the equipment I am carrying on treks at present. Finally I managed to get a flintlock pistol. The ramrod was too short to be practicle, which seems to be a common problem, so I made a new wood ramrod with an antler tip. https://s5.postimg.org/vb1ewbimf/Tools_of_the...

NO "charcloth" Fire Lighting.

Charred cloth was used by the gunner on 17th & 18th century ships, & it was used in city & town homes. Mostly what was used was "toe rag". But outside of the towns only plant tinders were used, although some travellers did also carry charred cloth in their tinderboxes, but not ...
