Title: Tools, Casting templates and Rifling Bench of William Schreckengost
Post by: Hurricane ( of Virginia) on November 03, 2010, 06:26:04 PM
Adding to the extraordinary Exhibit of the Schreckengost family of Gunsmiths is an extensive display of the personal "smithing" tools and "inlay" templates as well as the rifling bench of William Schrecknegost. Perhaps these were also used by Lincoln, his son. These have been graciously provided by several Schreckengost descendants.
