    Hi--i see several references to  metal clamps used to string a 
           crossbow- they refer to Harmuth s Die Armbrust 
          Any have any pictures or drawings ??
           Thanks   Sydney

    Right now, I'm having serious computer issues. When those are done, I'll try to post some pics of my metal bastard-string clamps in use.  I got my pattern from Harmuth's "Die Armbrust".  Geezer.

    Geezer here: I promised pics of my bastard string clamps.  Here's one of them.  It's clamped onto one end of the prod, and of course there's another on the other end.  Mounting bolts fit behind the outer end, and Inside the inner end.  The bent bar bends down and out.  You tie a stout cord to that, and the other end. One person pulls the cord back, bending the prod sufficiently to get a proper string on the nock ends.  Makes sense?   Now let's see if I can figure out how to add the photo....

    Well, it might help if I addressed the right discussion group.  Can't figure out how to attach this pic to my posting (computer illiterate) but if you drop me an e mail, I'll see about sending it that way.
