    For my drafting class, our professor has given us a project for a mid-term to draw something out of the medieval times. I was going to draw a thumb screw, but I think I want to try something a little more challenging. Like a cross bow. If anyone can direct me to where I might find a good diagram of one that would be great. I don't even need dimensions, if a can get a good view of how the locking mechanism works, and some different types of crossbows I can figure up dimensions. A quick response would be helpful because I am going to do an ortho and a front ,top and, side view of the thumb screw then I have to do an alternate drawing of the crossbow to see if he will let me change my project.

    Sir Ralph Payne-Gallwey's The Crossbow Book is a very complete reference with lots of wonderful sketches and diagrams:
