    hi everyone,I'm 38 years old and have been building crossbows since age 10 (using a crusafix style body and prod with catapult elastic), So I have to thank Ivo who recently left a comment on my youtube channel (that gave me the kick to join here).if anyone is interested in what I can build please see this link-- "My YouTube Channel" I am willing to learn and recieve good advice from people/builders with more experience than I have,and if I can will return the favour. I'm not familiar with the site yet,but I'll get there and post my builds here also.so thats it,I'm off to rummage through this site. cheers

    Welcome to the forum.

    Pretty Cool Build! drunken I know the tube is full of lame PVC/school ruler crossbows, so I'm with IVO on the props from all of us.

    Did you figure everything out on your own, or are you a part of some underground crossbow club we aren't aware of? Cool Very Happy

    LOL! And I'm amazed Ivo has the time to go on the tube, the guy is always at work and is like a ghost that haunts my house at 3am - eating all my sandwiches. Razz

    Ok, off to check out the rest of your vids. By the way - hit me up if you need some help with getting the videos up or anything else here.
