Update on the build. Christmas break has brought the project to about 90% completion. Just finishing off small things now. Today was the Ear Plate and Key for Worm and the prolonge hooks. The ear plate was simple and was 1/2 in bar stack about 1 1/4" long and ears welded on. Pretty simple stuff and prolonge hook pictures will follow this post.

Prolonge Hooks build. These were 1" wide and initially i tried to bend them in my vise and back cut but messed that up thoroughly, so I went to my buddies and he back cut the bends but bent them with vise grips by hand then welded the back cuts. I don't know how I feel about the width on them.

Well, here's an update on the build, I'd say the project is at about 95% done. I'm still missing implements and a bucket. Yesterday I worked on the Sponge and Rammer chain plates and hasp with the long distance help from northwoodneil. When i first stumbled upon all this I literally thought the chains were joined with cloth or leather haha. So, I'm uploading this for any new comers who had no idea what was going on like me. The chain is from a hardware store and I had to separate each link with a grinder. here's the steps I took.

I simply got thin sheet brass and then made sure the width would fit the inside size of the chain link. Once I had the width, i cut them into strips and simply bent it around the chain and then visualized where the next length should go and cut the brass to appropriate length.

Once all the pieces of brass were cut to length and chains free from each other i began to bend each brass link around the chain pieces. Once I believed there were enough length i rounded one end for attaching to the cannon on the left side drilling 1 screw hole. I didnt have enough length for 2.

At this point i ran out of long enough brass pieces for the right side attachment so i went into my attic and found a circular cut off piece from my duct work thank Neil! I cut this long and to width and then wrapped it around the last link and rounded it over with a grinder and drilled a key hole or attaching to the cannon trail.

At this point it was complete and painted it and moved on to the hasp. This was made of metal stock and cut and rounded with the grinder. I then drilled a hole for the nail head and larger hole for a screwhead the links would fit over and be secured.

Looks like you're making good progress. On the key hole tab I bent the top 1/4" or so out to about 30 degree angle so it's easier to get a hold of. Lookin' good, you should be close to helping us "ring in spring" this year.

I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
