Max mortar size 16"! in the picture there are 12" shells max -they take less making and cost less to make. Two of those were mine :)

Can anyone tell me what gender of XLR 4 pole connector is used on the output of a FbW USB unit please. I have some cables to make, and reel them the right way round.

Two shows of three sites completed that's two crowds happy. Friday's weather was lovely just a little damp after the show, saturday's weather got wetter til 6pm so it was a horrid rig session but a good show with a local radio doing the sound and working the crowd for us.


Loads of FBW now all covered in fallout and needing cleaning and a lead needing some TLC.

16" Shell of Shells The build and the shooting.

After several years nurturing a friendship, an invitation was made available to me privately, to go o the USA, to a site licensed by BATFE and the local authorities there,  and build a shell!


This was something special of an invitation so it had to be something special of a product. PLUS I had to travel there totally inert, and return by air totally inert too. BUT ingredients could be ordered to be delivered at the site.


Here is the video, This is what a Brit did under a BATFE licence in the USA.



This was my first attempt at a shell! But a lot of design effort went into it. Probably 100 people from the USA were making things under the licence, some were recognised as being good builders and one UK builder made his mark.


I'm in a truckstop  on the way to LAX at the moment, so may not reply for some days.


I'll continue writing up the build with a couple of pictures from home, maybe next week. 


NO I will NOT share the invitation unless I know you well. No I will not advise you what to do. A 16" shell may be above 100gNEQ -I could barely carry that shell.


To all the ELO's watching, enjoy! It's pretty and it was all lawful in the BATFE licensed place. I have the skill to do it but the wisdom to NOT do it in the UK! I have to get through US and UK border protection yet!
