    My crossbow project

    Post by ZigiMan on Sat Dec 15, 2012 12:46 pm

    First topic message reminder :

    Hi,

    I can say that this is the second crossbow I am building. (the first one was 20 years ago when I was a young boy.)
    This is beginning of my project. I want to share it with you all and also to get your opinions and advices.
    I'm building my crossbow from scratch using leaf spring as prod.
    There are some contemplations about how to start and what to do.
    In the next post I will send some pictures and details.

    That's nice ali j. 

    But it would have been even nicer (and more courteous) if you had started your own thread about your bow, rather than tacking onto the established discussion we were having with Zigiman concerning his project...

    That's a nice build ali. I like it.
    Especially the innovative trigger. Really ingenious, it's from a door stop, doesn't it?

    kenh, well, that's what I was thinking but didn't know if it would be polite to write it Smile

    Zigi -- IMHO it's always good to politely remind folks about how a group like this operates.

    IMHO each build really should be in a separate thread (with an appropriate title) to make it easier for others to find information like ali's unique trigger mechanism.
