Great job Epps! Do it as you go. My kinda guy. A 50-70? I see you're working on the running gear. I know where you can get the spokes and fellows if you need them. I have made several of them for a gun I built a few years ago if you need any advice on shrinking the tire. Then again, looking at your handywork and surrounding tools, you probably know how to do that too!

Congrats, you have something to be very proud of.

Jim

tried to find plans for the 1862 gat but no luck. went to patent office in Va. and got a copy of the original patent. there is not one dimension on the patent. had to make it all of it up.

Epps, for your pictures, when you download them into your "my pictures " album from your camera......After your pictures have fully downloaded take your mouse and right click the picture. A list of words will pop up to the right of your picture. left click "edit". Pretty soon your computer will bring up a huge grainy picture that you won't be able to tell what it is. Towards the upper left hand corner of your screen it will say "image". left click that and a list of words will drop down under the word "image". left click "sketch/skew". Your computer will pop up a box that says "horizontal" and "vertical" left click the top colored box and type in 30 and do the same to the bottom box. I gotta go to my pictures to see what you have to do next. Be right back.

Epps, after you have left clicked OK the picture will reduce in size. If it is the size you want, go to the upper right hand corner of your screen and left click the red X. Pretty soon a small box will pop up in the middle of the screen left click "save". Viola!

If you still have some problems, pm me your phone number and I'll try to walk you through it.
