    Ciao Luigi;

    What kind of re-enacting are you doing?  Roman?  Condottieri?  Post pictures of your project as it grows, and we'll help any way we can.

    Good afternoon,
    First, thank you very much for the acceptance.
    I am from Argentina.
    Please, I would need advice to make a Medieval Crossbow.
    I have made bows, but never a Crossbow ...
    I have some truck leaf spings... very thick..
    ... I do not know how to cut them ...
    Hope to do it in 2019 ...
    Happy New Year !!!!
