Mike Foley here .
New to making crossbows.
I have been building traditional arrows, cutting my own feathers, and am going to be making my own bodkins on my forge.
I have about 2 years in traditional archery, learning from Wolferic in the SCA West Kingdom Barrony of Fetburg.
I ordered a 15th Century crossbow from David Watson and have been shooting this for over 2 years.
What with me being in the SCA and making my own equipment, I feel it it time to go forth and start trying to make my own Crossbow, Goats Foot as well as a Cranequin as shown in Gallways book. These are for my presonal use, (not for sale) I build Period Tables and Chairs for the SCA Comunity as well as working reproductions of 15th century Cannons and Matchlocks.
I am sure I will be on here asking the questions all newbie's ask. so please bear with me.
Looking forward to chatting with you all
