Money well spent!
If your time is worth nothing, do it yourself.
As for myself, NO ONE does a better job than Mr Rase. Iíll save that time for the stuff I like to do.  Now If I could just get Dave to inlet the buttplate and entry pipe, I could really slam these things together.

Once again...... ingenious, and approaching Rube Goldberg status.
Very well done!

I can just picture a herd of neats running around in the pasture on stumps.  Poor lil critters!  Perched on their stumps, they are at the brink of extinction, just like those various-colored Naugas, who got killed off for their hides by the automobile industry.

I am a true believer in Mink oil, and got a large jar off Amazon for a pretty low price.  Works great on patches, and is also excellent used as a waterproofer for your footwear.

I think the experiment was done with dry grass and dry oak leaves. Makes sense they would blow apart and tough ivy would not.

Hahaha you asked for it.

A couple of bearing blocks or pintles are carriages for the hinge pin. These are riveted to the surround. Everything is self contained, including the latch, latch spring, and opening spring. I figure Fainot lucked into a half gallon of brass rivets or something. If the pictures donít tell the story Iíll explain more.

Items for Sale/Wanted / Horn Oven For Sale SOLD Pending Funds

*****S O L D *****

I have for sale a horn oven that I made about 10 years ago after attending a HCH meeting in Williamsburg, VA.  It is made out of a bulk smokeless powder can and some pieces of sheet steel.

This is a view from the front side showing the entire device.  On the far left is a sliding base where the heat gun is screwed down to.

This photo shows the sliding base plus the opening where the heat gun is put into.

This photo is a picture of the other end of the oven.

And this is a photo of the top with the lid closed with the heat gauge in place.

And finally, a photo of the interior of the oven.  Notice the baffle installed in the far end of the oven to keep the direct heat from burning the horn.

The oven comes with the heat gauge but no heat gun.  The sliding base has a hinged top where the heat gun is attached.  You can adjust it as to angle with the hinge and hold it in place with wood shims.

I would like $40.00 for this plus $10.00 postage to the 48 contiguous States.

Contact me either by PM here or email at  Thank you for looking and stay safe out there.

I now own this Fowler and have plans to offer it as a model for a future class. Molds of the mounts and lock parts will get under way in a few months.
