    First topic message reminder :

    Slurbow finished ,a new project on the way: A 19th century style,Belgium hunting crossbow. I'll use two 150# fibreglass prods.The original one had steel bow around 400# but only 6" power stroke and something like 200/250 fps. Mine will be 9 1/2" power stroke for bit more then 300#, the result should be interesting.

    Is anybody ho still have a Barnett wildcat or this kind of crossbow can give me the distance between the back of the  prod and the anchoring point (the trigger). It will help for the setting . Thanks.

    Looks like the new forge is opening some options for you, Jeep. Can't wait to see how those sandwiched fiberglass prods work out, I was thinking of a similar application for a future build.

    Unfortunately I was right!! Draw length is to long and the goat foot don't work properly. Medieval draw length is generally 5"1/2, mine is 9"1/2. Leverage ratio no good. Never mind! I have started a spanning lever. I'll use the goat foot for a next medieval realisation.

    Here is the spanning lever, it's the one I was using for my "skane" I just change the pivoting arms to fit with the bigger draw length. I span the crossbow for the first time! So I could check two very important points: The double bow withstand perfectly to the stress , the delrin nut also. That for the good : Todd was right,  the set trigger spring is to week to realise the nut (heavy poundage) . I have to go back with setting and balance. Probably I will have to change the trigger to bad I likeed this one .

    Gnome. It is OK with the "sandwich fibreglass prod". I cut the inside one shorter, like my Chinese bamboo slat crossbow and I tie them with string so they are free to slide.
