    Hello from Ontario Canada!

    Hey there!

    New guy here. Starting work on a primitive crossbow with a notch lock and a wooden prod. Gonna try for around 70 lbs. Just as a learning project for making a steel prod roller nut bow in the future. I have some 1075 spring steel and some knife making, bowyery and fletching experience so hopefully things will work out.

    I shot a friend's Excaliber the other week and was really impressed but don't have $550 to drop on a bow at the moment, maybe next year. I always like the medieval and primitive crossbows better anyway. Laughing

    I have lurked a lot over the last week and while this place isn't the busiest forum, you guys really have some talent.

    Looking forward to posting pictures of my project.

    Welcome Tim. I used to have an excalibur myself. Now I like the more classic types, although the still find the modern one pretty cool.



    Not always the busiest around here but in many ways much more interesting.



    Keep us up to date with your project and show us some pictures as well.
