    First topic message reminder :

    Hi to all boys!!! Here I post and descrive my last work, i hope you like it!
    My crossbow is 400 pounds of weight. of course Cherry wood. Bone and horn decorations, the most fine decorations are made with powder of bone and glue. of course all the crossbow is hand made, and the iron parts are hand forged ( but not the bow, that is a very accurate metal work in a laboratory, for make a very durable bow) the Ring is hand forge-welded by me, and the internal clockworks and the spring are all hand forged. I use a brass nut, and a secret brass pillow for put on the top the durability and the safety of this powerfull weapon.
    Is a crossbow with a spanning belt with spillow! you can reload with no difficult and no damage for the crossbow, and in a very faster way than all the other reloading way.

    Yeah, but everybody have it. is on Arcosophia.
    http://www.arcosophia.net/database/N7/balestre_corno.htm

    Is a on-line magazine about bow. Very interesting, and very good made from Alessio Cenni. The best ever in Italy.

    An avatar?
    Change my avatar? Honestly, I couldn't care less. Besides, Dobby is a decent sort. One could do worse... how about Rasputin the Mad Monk of Tobolsk? That would be lots worse.

    elazzari,

    Thanks for the link. Great to have you here because I don't understand a word in Italian. Embarassed Laughing ...I'm limited to Google Translate and my brother(who studied Italian, but laughs when I ask him to help me out. Mad *he is my younger brother* Laughing )

    The article really captured my attention...I'll keep an eye on the updates as you get some time to do more translations. Thanks. cheers study

    Geezer,

    Such a relief...Not a drop of pessimism in you, ey? Smile Gotta tell you, it's great having you here from the moment you joined and is only getting better. All best to you! German Crossbow 1475 - Page 2 204712

    Enrico: Beautiful work done on your own crossbow. I wish I had talent like that. Boy have I tried. The two individuals you are talking to from Austin Texas; made me a crossbow. That is a work of art unquestionable. The master/owner knows his stuff. There is a fella from the UK. that ranks tops in his class for his work. His web site is Tods stuff.com. He just finished up a crossbow for me.It is art work I kid you not. Take care Enrico. Mike

    Thanks Michael
    I know Leonardo Todeschini by fame, He is a good worker. But sometimes I can't find the originals of his stuff. In my personal idea, i can't work, and i can't love a modern reproduction, without originals. But is ONLY my personal idea Smile He remains a great worker, I love his cranequins.

    Thanks Mac! Smile
