  4. WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    The techs from the local industry museum did weld a big broken clamp of my drillpress with brass. But they had to warm up the cast iron to red hot first. It still works fine since.

  8. German gun quadrant?

    Hi Trev, The inscription sais 1 nonienteil = 1/16 dgr. So 1 stripe on the small scale is 1/16 degrees. I have found a similar one that was from 1 881 gun. They were placed on the breech area of the gun. Only difference with the other ones i found is that they are from 0 to 45 degrees, mine goes from 90 to 45 degrees. Is it possible that mine is from a mortar which is used a higher angle? See also here http://www.lovettartillery.com/Foot Artillery Gunner's Quadrant.html
