Kaboom!

Postby Graham Ashford » Wed Jan 14, 2015 9:46 am

I was lucky enough to have a change of period and pace in the workshop recently and had some fun making these. Bar shot and extending shot for 24 pounder. L'orks they're heavy.

Nasty (not the workmanship, the effect they'd have).
What period?

Based on general shot seen around 1790 to about 1810 or so, from piccies in the HMS Victory museum in Portsmouth, web searches and the Ladybird book of Nelson's Navy :)

Did you forge the balls graham? or get from a supplier?

Mark, the balls came from a supplier, I've forged the bar, drilled, countersunk and welded.
