It is all steel internals.

Default Charging key

Made a charging drive key over the weekend and it works great. It will do for the purpose of the rebuild. I will however check the interwebs for a period clock winding key of the same drive size, it is a quarter inch square.

Looks like you did a real good job on the key. Another question, I don't think you posted the manufacturer of this cane, do you know who it is?

Not a mark on it. Air weapons where not required to carry any proof house stamps. It does appear to be a one off. Nothing else like it on the net that I can find. Very similar but not quite the same. It was not unusual at the time for a wealthy gent to commission a one off.

Default The interesting bits

Right took off the cover and got to the interesting bits. Looks very like the inside of an old pistol. Turning the drive cocks the firing spring and sets the trigger button at the same time. Very ingenious saying it over 150 years old. The locking notch to the left of the drive socket is rounded off and that is why it is not holding every time on full cock. Will file this and report soon if this solves the problem. Amazing to think every part was made using nothing but hand tools. Comments please gents.

careful with the filing, you don't want to end up with a full auto

Very interesting, do you plan on a full restoration, or just to firing condition?

Hand tools? That is impressive; i wonder if that 3D printer could make one out of plastic...doubtful.
