Chuck Wallace's cannon with ou cannon wheels
" Hi Folks, here are the wheels that I ordered from you after mounting them on a carriage.  They look great.  The fit and finish were as good as any I have ever seen.  All we have done is oil them with linseed oil.  We will use several more coats and then seal them."


"You may use the photo on your web site if you wish.  The barrel is a 3 punder and it and the carriage are Rev. War.  We will use them in re-enactments and at ceremories at various historic sites."

"We also put on living history days for various elementary schools and student groups."

"We re-enact the 4th South Carolina Regiment here in South Caroline.  We also do Marion's Militia and will use the new gun while re-creating that unit as well.  The new carriage will greatly enhance our rev. war inpression."

"Thanks, Chuck Wallace"

Chuck Wallace, with the "South Carolina Company of Historical Re-Enactors",       ("http://www.schr.org ")  was kind enough to provide this picture of a project that they used our stock cannon wheels for.  Below is some information from them.   Pay their site a visit...   Thanks much Chuck.
