    Hi i am new to the forum and live in the UK. I have already built a windlass crossbow with the help of Robin Knight who made the steel prod for me at  400lbs and advise to re modify my previous attempt and supplied a new oak stock that came from off cuts when Windsor castle was refurbished when part of it burnt down many years ago. Not sure if Robin Knight is still around?
    I have had a nostalgic interest of late to build another crossbow that uses the lever and pin design known as a dark ages crossbow if that's what its called, that uses a 50 to 100lb or so pull, i may cheat and use a ready made prod. My question and assistance would be to find a drawing with measurements to build one, can anyone help, can't seem to see anything in the Payne Gallwey book
