From John Hern’s original instruction sheet (provided with the kit): “This set of hardware is designed to provide the builder of a Coehorn Mortar bed – metal parts as close as possible to the original specifications. The furnished drawing is taken from original War Department sources and should be referred to in the event of questions. Originally, the hardware was all hand forged according to the drawing. Since this would be cost-prohibitive today, we have supplied the closest commonly available item.”
