  • Thank you Torchmate! torchmate.com/diresta
    This is the cannon I built to take to the Saunders Machine Works open house May 6 2017 in Zanesville Ohio! I was modeled after the cannons at Edinburgh Castle.
    The big cannon in the end shots was built by Jim Bollinger

    It’s a bad idea to drill a barrel under trunnions, don’t try to shoot cannons with cannonballs or buckshot. Translated to Google. Original:Плохая идея высверливать ствол под цапфы, не вздумайте стрелять из пушек ядрами или картечью

    Máquinas rotativas não se usa alianças, anėis, relógios nem luvas ou mangas compridas, risco muito grande de acidentes.

    I thought all machinists knew how to cut brass?
    Use a back rake an you'll get a much better cut !

    I thought you would have put a load in it an fired it off to see how it shoots,
