This cannon kit for a 13th century navy mount was distributed by American Edelstaal. The cannon is 7”-long and 5”-wide. American Edelstaal, distributors of the Unimat lathe, provided beginner’s kits designed to give the new lathe user simple projects to help get started in machining. Mike Showah purchased this kit for that reason, and, when finished with this one quickly moved on to other more complex projects. The kits provided all the materials and drawings necessary to finish the project. Include is the original kit box. Courtesy of Mike Showah.
