Default Brooks-USA SAMCC

Very fortunate to receive a Brooks SAMCC tube for my birthday. These are beautiful and will make an awesome gun. It is sitting on an old carriage for the pictures. Thanks to my wife and Michael!

28 of those barrel made now. That is great. I always wondered if Michael would make any more after mine.

That is a nice carriage match. You would do well to copy it. Dig back to some where around winter 2008-2009 or 2009-2010 and find my build post and the plans for the Original SAMCC carriage will be found there.

I referred extensively to your build thread and the Building 18th Century Naval Artillery book when completing the Big 32 Pounder project. Could not have done it without the detailed pictures you provided Double D!

Happy Birthday, Tom

Your photo's are Great and your kind words are appreciated. Since coming to GBO, you have learned to create several notable projects. I recall that one of your early projects was with your Father-in Law. Your Wife is great to work with. You are a fortunate man!

Douglas,

I had to make a handful of the 50 cal SAMCC before I was comfortable with the complexity of them. I am wondering about a 69 cal. Maybe for Lady Jane?

NOTE: I have 3 of these in stock. My web page now has notation, IN STOCK, READY TO SHIP for those complete, ready for final polishing and shipping. If you see a barrel not in stock or a special order, let us know of your interest and we will schedule production.

Oh no Michael, I am not buying Jane another cannon. Besides she reminds me occasionally that we have to return to your shop shop so you can teach her to make her own Cannon. We may be headed that way in the next year as we should be headed to up to pick-up my rifled Parrot barrel from Ed.

Before that is a trip to Houston to pick up her Pack Parrot. Maybe January for that trip.

Douglas,

JB and I think it would be great to have you and Lady Jane visit next summer.

Tom,

I am working on a more proper cap square for your project and will post pics soon.

Very nice. After seeing that picture I found myself looking at different corners in my home and judging how well one just like it would look there.

Beautiful barrel. My birthday is coming up, I'm not holding my breath

Some people are like a Slinky...

Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

That is a beautiful barrel indeed. Lucky guy Fred.

Maybe I will view this thread while the Wife is watching, maybe give her an idea.
