Hern Iron Works produces the 8″ siege mortar reproduction from the original ordnance plans. This Mortar Tube is cast with an 8-3/4″ bore to suit a bowling ball! Weight of the tube is just over 1000#.
The 1861 – 8″ Siege Mortar Base is recreated exactly to the original Ordinance Plans. This is the fully assembled Base as pictured – fitted, and painted ready to use. Weighing just over 1050#, if purchasing the Mortar tube at the same time, we will mount the tube in the base for shipment.
This Base Kit only is the un-assembled set of parts needed to completely build your own 8″ Siege Mortar Base. All nuts, bolts, side plates, iron, steel, and ductile castings to build your base. These are made to order, not stock parts, so plan on 8-12 weeks for delivery. Un-painted, some finish grinding and fitting needed. Weight: ~1050#
