I would like some tips on the desgin of a tiller.
I want a munition grade crossbow.
I have a nut of diameter 38mm
I want to use steel side plates. 2-3mm thick.
I have a prod that is 34mm high in the middle. 180# @8.5
How high, thick and long should the tiller be made?
I want to use ash or oak.
I was thinking of a length of 850mm without stirrup included.
a thickness of about 45mm
left and right of the nut I have 10mm wood.
is 45mm enough to hold the prod stably?
and a height of about 70mm.
let me know what you guys think.
