    Hello Everyone!

    Hello fellow arbalest makers!

    I studied the crossbow under the punishing stare and strong hand of Master Iolo of New World Arblalest. Some of you out there know me in the SCA circles as an armourer, siege engineer, and crossbowmaker. Iolo invited me here to this round table of craftsmen, and I am honored to be here. My website at www.stormthewalls.kicks-ass.net is down at present and will be up in about a month or two, after I get back from vacation and a month's work in Tennessee. If you want to contact me, feel free at ksuleskiREMOVETHIS@comcast.net. I still make the occasional crossbow for a customer, but have been active as a machinegunner and motorcycle rifleman in the Wehrmacht for WWII reenactment recently. Weapons from all periods interest me, and probably have owned or played with most of them at one time, from the sling to the Greek ballista to the MG-42.

    Welcome to the forum DARIVS ARCHITECTVS,

    Very glad you have joined our, as you put it - "round table of craftsmen".

    You do beautiful work and your website is in the top ten list of places that inspired me and countless others. I hope it comes back up soon.

    Again Welcome,

    Ivo

    Hey there Darius, welcome aboard from your old friend Iolo, known hereabouts as Geezer. I'm sure you'll have plenty to contribute to the discussions. Geezer

    Who names you Geezer? Must have been a VERY close acquaintance!

    That rings of Osprey's work...

    "Must have been a VERY close acquaintance!"

    It seems like we might soon arrive at an answer for "Holding a arbalist".

    Sorry guys, I just couldn't resist any longer.
