The carriage has to withstand the forces of recoil. I'll concede that the barrel and the carriage have to be equal in superior craftsmanship.
That's why we work so well together.
Who wouldn't want that outstanding barrel mounted on this carriage.

Great save, Michael, but I can't believe how long it took! I was just getting ready to respond that many of the barrels that I see on your Beautiful Carriages are well polished. I should also mention that after the fuse is lit, one does not focus on the capsquare or the carriage wheels....the focus is on the BARREL.

The focus is on the barrel as long as it doesn't break out of the carriage and go flying!

This has certainly been a fun post to read. I never grow tired of the Zulu carriages with Brooks tubes; or is Brooks tubes with Zulu carriages?!

Fred,

You were right the last time 'Brooks tubes with Zulu carriages' and, yes this has been a fun post, but, do not doubt me, Zulu always gets the last word!

Looks good so far as I can tell.


I do have a question about the way you chose to do the Cheeks. Keep in mind I am no Expert. But I usually laminate my cheeks vertical with two pieces glued together. Rather than stacked Horizontal like you did. Maybe the way you did it is more Historically correct as far as I know.



Not criticizing, heck may be doing it wrong,LOL. Just seems to be a stronger method going vertical to me.


Gonna look great though with that Beautiful Barrel..

Sorry Bruce,
Horizontal is the correct way.

Yep, that is what I thought as I said. I did mine wrong.LOL So did they also stack them on like Prairie type carriages and such.? Or just Naval and Garrison types I assume?


My Hughes carriage I went vertical, as that is the way it looks in the Photos of the original I copied anyway.



Just seems it would be stronger the other way though.


I still dream of getting one of those Brooks barrels. Man they sure are pretty.
