    Welcome Quantum! How come you haven't Snowbird-ed out like the rest of your neighbors who are sitting down here in the Florida sun? The Forum is a great source of ideas and information.

    First thing you could do is build another tiller that can use the prod from your existing crossbow. Or get on Ebay and buy a "replacement prod" of the same draw weight for about $50.

    Hey Ken, this bird doesn’t fly, like ever... I built a tiller a couple weeks ago and also made a red oak long bow, unfortunately as i was tillering and weighting it in at 50 pounds, she broke, so it's back to the drawing board to build another American long bow... if anyone has plans for American long bows i would love to see them. Thanks!

    Quantum,

    Agreed, too dark & cold up here for anything else Smile

    My avatar pic crossbow is partly hand built. It was a first effort project. The prod, bow irons, tickler are from Alchem. Also, I have a Alchem stirrup that is not attached yet. I was going to do some etching on it first maybe. I was experimented with an etching process for some of the parts. There are a few pics on one of my earlier posts.
