Signalling Cannon ...

OMG. Have you ever wanted a cannon - with your name (etc) cast into the barrel at the foundry ? One-inch, smooth bore barrel, furniture grade carriage. Being made in Vancouver, Canada, to order ...

Looks neat, but could probably do with a little more information about them

Re: Signalling Cannon ...

G'Day Charlz; Sorry about the photo being on it's side - can be copied and edited to make it right. What would you like to know ? Made from ductile iron. Barrel is ~19 inches long. Including carriage weighs ~47 lb. Smooth bore is one-inch. Family, boat, or other name, etc., cast into the barrel at the foundry. Oak carriage is furniture grade. Other woods possible. Licence is not required (at least in Canada & USA). Black powder available from various venders (shipped ground only). One tablespoon of powder makes serious BOOM. Three tablespoons makes OUTRAGIOUS B O O M !!! Made order. Takes a month or two.
