    During some sparetime I built a crossbow for a colleague.
    Here a quick look since I am really tired at the moment :-)

    The prod from a leaf spring (hopefully the last one i did not produce myself) about 60kg power.

    Tiller is cherry with a buffalo horn extension.

    Parts before assembling yesterday (and before tiller dropped onto concrete stairs :-(

    I stiffened the stirrup binding with 2 steel pins through the bridle socket.

    Thanks you all!

    The last days I made some finetuning and finishing.

    I modified the trigger lever design a bit to lower the angle the lever sticked out.

    Today I want to build a simple wood security block to prevent accidential shooting.

    Still some Tung+Orange Oil coating to be done to make it look even more "glossy" :-)


    Greetings Rizzar
