Pounder Naval Cannon Plans
close replica to one of the 24 pound guns used on the ship USS
The original guns were 10 feet long and fired 24 pound iron balls.
Canons of that era were usually of cast iron but sometimes bronze, and
with oak carriages. Everything on the model works just as on the
originals. If you want to be historically correct rather than have a
polished mantle piece like mine, the barrel and all fittings should be
black and the carriage of oak. Either way, it is an impressive model
that will take "center stage" on your fireplace mantle, book shelf or
plans set consists of 8 sheets of drawings, an info sheet and a sheet
of construction and assembly notes.
