    I really like this guys videos. This is a short 17minute video of the overall process of casting his own replica civil war cannon.

    He has a whole series of videos where he goes through all the metallurgy and casting problems in detail.
    He also cast an AR15 receiver from alloy cans
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vb2v...el=GunCraft101
    and
    AR10 from brass, yes brass from cartridges. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4qE...el=GunCraft101

    But youtube was all butt hurt about videos showing people how to manufacture firearms.

    Careful what you wish for, guys... a CANON (2 "n"s) is a law or body of laws of a church...a CANNON (3 "n"s) is a huge, single shot. kick-arse firearm, otherwise known in German as an
    "Eargesplitten Loudenboomer." and formerly used for taking out the walls of a castle...

    Go back and read the links in Mimms post - the Coehurn mortar story is one of the funniest things I've read.

    Maybe send it to G Morgan.

    They do mate, but they get a bit put off when I bring animals home and skin them or plucking ducks, but if they donít see that theyíre into it. Mrs seems to think itís skin should be a plastic tray with gladwrap and a perfume scent😂
