    Early Lever and pin Crossbow

    Post by topfmine on Mon Aug 14, 2017 4:30 am

    Hi i am new to the forum and live in the UK. I have already built a windlass crossbow with the help of Robin Knight who made the steel prod for me at  400lbs and advise to re modify my previous attempt and supplied a new oak stock that came from off cuts when Windsor castle was refurbished when part of it burnt down many years ago. Not sure if Robin Knight is still around?
    I have had a nostalgic interest of late to build another crossbow that uses the lever and pin design known as a dark ages crossbow if that's what its called, that uses a 50 to 100lb or so pull, i may cheat and use a ready made prod. My question and assistance would be to find a drawing with measurements to build one, can anyone help, can't seem to see anything in the Payne Gallwey book

    Also use the Search function here to search on Pin Lock  and Notch -- there are several good discussions

    Thanks kenh, just saw a post the crusader crossbow which is the type and build I want to go for along the historic lines.
