The barrel has Birmingham proofmarks but the pitch of the thread is exactly 1.5mm – not an whole imperial size. Earlier he had mislaid the locks of the Blair and Sutherlands that I had left with him to get Jason to weld and Dick to reshape the frizzens and he was in quite a state – I was a little concerned as the gun is worthless without them, but I was sure he would find them, which he eventually did, in a pretty box exactly where he had put them for safekeeping!
When I loose things I’m reluctant to move anything in the search, because I always assume it will turn out to be within plain sight.
If you have an inertial changeover you won’t fire the second barrel without bumping the butt on the ground to mimic recoil between the pulls.
I find it very difficult to work out exactly how the various patents work from the drawings in Cruddington, so I usually doze of while trying!
All my photos have been reduced in resolution using photoscape (excellent & free) to save space on the website, they are normally 1200 pixels wide, occasionally 1600 for more interesting things.
The image you will normally see on your screen is at a lower resolution still, as wordpress fits it to the page and decreases the resolution very considerably to speed up loading.
I was trying to buy some faux ivory from the US as it claims to be used by various museums, and I thought I’d make a few brushes and a couple of pots for caps, but the minimum order is and the carriage would be , so a bit pricey for something to play with! It has a percussion breech, although it might have originally been a flintlock. I do have a not very nice stock that I have fitted the barrel to – the easy thing would be to make a percussion gun, but I don’t need another one! Feb 20th – I had to do some electronic assembly of printed circuit boards for a client today.
I wrote my first program in 1966 on punched cards to run an an IBM mainframe, and we used old punched cards of that era to write down commands of our ‘people computer’ programs in class.

Feb 21st Still suffering from the effects of solder fumes – I thought I’d do a web search for solder with less bad flux, i.e.
colophony free, but then I found I was already using that, so maybe I’ll go back to the normal, bad, colophony flux. I dug out a nice single percussion barrel that I bought with a junk stock and took out the breech block – the bore is quite good – I am sure it would hone to a perfect bore and still be a safe wall thickness.
