    Hello Jokum: Try getting a copy of this book; "Crossbows in the Royal Netherlands Army Museum". Written by an outstanding fella Mr. Jens Sensfelder. He can help you out and even point you in the direction that you have to go. Good luck in your quest. Mike

    Hello Jokum: Yes I do let me go to my other desk and find what you need: hang on please. I'm back with the information to contract Jens. Jens Sensfelder@google mail.com If that one doesn't get results try this one jens.sensfelder@googlemail.com That should do it. If you are thinking about having Jens build you a prod (bow) he is the man. I'm having a crossbow built for myself with one of his bows. A 875 lb. draw wt. Well take care. B/4 I forget he takes a week or less to get an answer from Jens. Tell Jens that Mike Nowak from the States saids Hello. Thank you.
