Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Ian at Foorgootten Weapons has this video on YouTube:


The Armstrong gun fired a 2,000 lb. projectile. England had four of these and Ian visits the one on the Island of Malta.

I watched that video a couple of weeks ago. There was as tremendous amount of engineering and construction that went into that thing. The loading procedure was amazing. Especially the pump and hydraulic system.

If you can't kill it with a 30-06 you ain't in North America.
The first rule of intelligent tinkering is, "Save all the pieces."
It'll feel better when it quits hurtin'.
