Items for Sale/Wanted / Re: Wanted - Valve Type Spout for a Powder Horn

Track used to sell both the finished item and also the kit.  Not sure if they still do or not.
Also Michael Lea and Daughter used to make them.  But that was a while ago.  No idea if they still do or not.

Contemporary Accoutrements / "Lyman" pouch
« Last post by Wmasswolf on Today at 06:52:49 PM »
This French and Indian war era shot pouch is 7.5" wide by 5" deep. This style of pouch was made famous by the account of one Lemuel Lyman from Easthampton Massachusetts who was wounded during an ambush on the 8th of Sept 1755. i live about 20min from lemuel lymans home, so im kinda surprised it took me this long to make his pouch.

I like white oak for wooden forms for making buttplates and nosecaps from sheet brass. Terrific strong wood. It works better than hickory and is  more split resistant than ash. I would use it for certain builds, especially an early colonial musket.

$300.00 pls or minus is a ballpark figure for plain or utility grade blanks in the size required for 36 inch barreled trade gun stocks. Occasionally true sapwood blanks are available for somewhat less. Or a stock that has a blemish. For instance, there is a blank here that will need a knot filled in the butt stock. Otherwise a strong stable blank with good grain flow.
