    I'm new on this forum, but I see old world crossbow community friends - Todd the Archer and Moon.
    everybody!
    Thank's Moon's inspiration a few months ago I started old crossbow building. First prepared steel parts for Western European XV-XVI century crossbow, about 640 lbs of draw weight:

    Bought parts for next wooden (XI century) and composite (XIV century) crossbow too: yew, walnut and ash wood, deer tendons, karuk (original fish glue), deer bone for bone nut, cattle bone for incrustations; just looking for big goat horns (in European Union horns must be utilised, so difficult to buy).
    I hope find there help and new friends.
    regards - Robert

    jopsa,

    Welcome to The Arbalist Guild!

    Mighty good work! ...and I've seen you jumped in right away with good info...always a pleasure to see such an active member join our our circle.

    To help you out with finding the horns...look on e-bay for Gemsbok horns.

    Being a half blood medieval half blood modern crossbow enthusiast, I've never gotten as far as actually witnessing a real composite crossbow prod build in progress, so if you don't mind sharing this experience, we will all be eternally grateful.

    Enjoy your stay,

    Ivo

    Welcome and sounds like you are going to start some really nice projects. Can't wait to see them and I second a composite prod build-a-long.
