Is this a kit or scratch and the scale would be helpful.


For the brass, take a diameter from the actual gun (if you have it) or from the plans. Order stock appropriately (slightly larger) and then center and round the stock which is why to go slightly larger.  For length, measure from the plans.   I'm assuming you're wanting to make scale guns instead of something generic.

I used 1/4 inch I believe. As for the length, I think that I used 1 1/2 inch. I had purchased 12 feet of it and had them cut it to four foot lengths. 12 feet was the minimum length. I got 16 cannons for every 2 feet. I used the extra length to chuck it in the lath and mill. I'm in Europe or I would send you photos.
