Hallo,
here's a small project which is on the bench:



This is a torsion catapult, at the cross bar still lack the protection against the throwing arm. The whole tension and release mechanism is or has been revised again.

Thanks for looking

There's just one thing that bothers me ... I can not see what ...
This could be the wheel ...

Great job!
This - one of my favorite types of throwing machines! And I am very pleased Connie, that you also like to do them. I also agree with Michelle that the wheels look a bit weak for the masses. But this does not spoil the view. I also want to say that I had made ​​such a catapult, only large and active. So mind catapults you want - or heavier rear - or lengthen the front part, as an impact, "spoon" will bounce back (like a wild horse).

Great!
On the top photo shows the right thing - and the wheels and the correct ratio of the masses "spoon" to the total weight of the catapult.
Mechanisms look great!
At the lower figure shows - how the wheel is not correct.
But, in fact, your catapult, Conny, great and all remarks are not so important!

Jens and I would like to make a bull, a cart to carry catapult disassembled (the march). And also people who are pushing this cart. And run the bulls.
You interested in this idea?
(Do you want to somehow in the future to make this cart?)
