2 1/4 Cannon balls-group buy
« on: October 22, 2020, 02:52:37 AM »
Finally the Group mould-pour  project is ready to go.



For several months GBO Member TM333TX-Trey has been working to get a mould for cannons with 2 1/4" bore.  This a common size used by many of the new made cast Cannons made by Companies like  Hern Iron Works.  See discussion in this post.  2.25 Cannonballs



Here is a link for ordering the balls:



https://www.rotometals.com/2-17-2-18-zinc-cannon-ball-pop-can-mortar/?ctk=9dc4f05d-cdda-4947-a9cb-b2ab4e862ffe&showHidden=true



These balls are running 2.17" - 2.18" which is sufficient for windage.  Each ball weighs about 2.3 lbs.  The sprue/gate and seams will not be ground-per our request, so you will have clean this when you get them.



The mould will be lodge for a short period of time, yet to be determined so the members here can place there orders.  As soon as I know the deadline I will post it.



Thanks again to Trey for stepping up and getting a mould and loaning it out for us.  Thanks also to Ryan at Rotometals for helping make this Group Buy possible.

This group buy has been put on temporary hold to sort out some issues with the mould.

Mold issue is not resolved.

Rotometals is working to complete existing orders with the broken mould,
 
Please wait until the new mould arrives to place orders.
