    Hello all.
    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
    Mike (crossbow) Foley

    Hey welcome from the sunny but supprising cold southern part of Kingdom of Atenveldt, its nice to see anouther SCA member on here. Very Happy

    Hopefully we can help you with building a crossbow.

    Hmm period matchlocks you say? you build your own. I would interested in that. Drop me a PM with details. I've shot a cannon before and a percussion cap muzzle loader never a matchlock.
