I don't think it is what I am looking for. Besides, a significant number of the pages display nothing of interest, as if they haven't been finished or weren't tested by the web page creator before posting.

I have approached the artillery issue from the ...

perspective of a machinist rather than artist so my creations have been of the most modern muzzleloaders which had little or no decoration so they could be machine finished. I did see on a PBS show a while back a very pretty old bronze cannon that was raised from a Carribean wreck. Supposedly the gu...

time of the Norman conquests but have always considered "the Old Country" to be the USA so a little comic relief is OK as long as it doesn't excessively offend someone else. 'Tis no offense to me. :-)

I would hardly qualify as a professional shell ...

moulder (I also am a computer professional, although not yet well healed enough to retire) but I have done a fair amount of shell moulding in a junior college art class I have attended for a number of years. Mostly what I cast is sub-scale muzzleloading artillery pieces; my most recent thrust has be...

SS filler on mild steel

Both of the welding instructors I've had suggested using SS rod on mild steel. It seems the primary issue is cost, not performance.

Re: Spanish Mauser FR8

I've heard the FR8 was made as a training rifle for use prior to issue of a self loader. Its safety using .308 Win ammo is probably dependent on the individual rifle; some will be OK, others will be a risk. You could probably load some minimum charge (from a reloading manual) loads for it for safer ...

an evaporative air conditioner water pump, a plastic 5 gallon bucket and enough tubing, valves, loc-line, etc., to your satisfaction. Hang the pump from a bar resting across the top of the bucket so it is not sucking the swarf up directly from the bottom of the bucket. Dilute soluble oil works OK.
