machines which I have made, am making, or intend to make, and some other stuff. If you find this site interesting, please leave a comment. I read every comment and respond to most. n.b. There is a list of my first 800 posts in my post of 17 June 2021, titled "800 Posts"
1779 Naval Cannon Scale Model
It is almost 2 months ago that I started this model.
I thought that it would take 3 or 4 days!
Anyway, here it is.
It will look interesting on the mantelpiece.
Note the hinge and square bolts and keys on the trunnion straps.
A good view of the elevating apparatus, the quoin.
A trunnion, trunnion band, trunnion bolts and key.
Powder pan and touch hole.
It goes on display at the Geelong Wooden Boats Show next weekend.
