Jackson Shot Tower

How the Jackson Shot Tower works:

1. A forge is set up at the top of the tower. There, molten lead is poured through a sieve that has holes the desired size of the shot.

2. The lead forms into hot, glowing balls as it begins to fall down the length of the tower.

3. As the lead falls, it cools into perfectly rounded shapes.

4. At the bottom of the Shot Tower is a large kettle filled with water. The cool round shot drops into the water where it is retrieved by the shot-maker.
