Filling a horn

50-70RB50-70RB Member Posts: 694 ✭✭
I have a horn that I made from a kit many years ago. It is fillable from the large end by removing a threaded wooden plug from the end cap. I want a second horn and all I'm seeing that are ready made have no means of filling except through the small dispensing end. How can this be efficiently done? With a small funnel or what? Thank you.

    I usually just remove the nipple hold the lever open and put a rolled up piece of paper in the hole to use as a funnel. it doesn't take much to fill the metal horns...

    Yes, fill with a small funnel. I have never seen a back-end fill location. A nice feature, but not very authentic to an American horn. But, who knows who did what?

    ,,,,,,,,,,go to your nearest veterinary supply store and look at the largest irrigation syringe. Just make sure the plunger will easily remove for filling.



    i.e. Scroll down to 5th image,,,,,,,,,,,140cc size,,,,,,

    Ted Case makes a nice brass funnel for exactly that purpose.
