Antique french ball mold

Tim Crosby:
 That's neat, have you ever tried it out? Be interesting to see what you'd get. What size it?


Very interesting ball mold with great color and condition. It makes me wonder how they got the molten lead all the way down to the bottom holes/molds without having it start to set up. That's a long way [and narrow track] for molten lead to travel, so I'm wondering if they warmed/heated the mold before casting??? Shelby Gallien

Shelby When you put them togheter its wide enough to pour lead in

Daniel Coats:
Looks great thanks for letting us see it! Must be quite a bit of cleanup after a pour.  Grapeshot for cannon maybe?
