Machining a Historic Bronze Cannon Barrel, Scaled Down Replica. GunCraft101
Many unique challenges in machining this rough casting! I learned a lot, and I hope you do too. Enjoy the video!
***I was mistaken when I called the drill bit grind a chisel point. In fact, it's called a SPLIT POINT. Chisel point is the normal drill bit grind.***
Note: This cannon barrel is not made operational in this video. Modification would be necessary in order to fire it. Also note, according to the US government, a replica cannon, or any black powder muzzle loading gun that does not use a cartridge is not considered a firearm.
