    when its done! this is a amazing design good job. i saw your crossbow and its a best crossbow

    I like the crossbow that you made

    I will upload all of the technical drawings and spec's as soon as i have the time.

    I haven't had time to finish the instructables because of shcool and work.

    no prob, dude. But maybe you add some annotations about what you did, how you concepted things instead of giving "us"/the community/those who come to watch a simple photo-slide-show.

    Even a sketch on how you plan to build this, would help and open upen up for discussion and development: Tell us about the parts you're going to use and its function.

    Don't take it the hard, but people here (most of them are tinkers themselves) are really pissed about publishers who just post stuff for gaining fame: This is a website for sharing knowledge and as long as you provide the knowledge, everything's fine.

    Looks like something form Van-Helsing. :D

    Would love to know how this was made it looks amazing

    i just redesigned the crossbow its almost done. i'm having a friend of mine machine the parts that i cant make myself. when its done i will take pictures and make a video then i will put it on eBay for sale.

    wow this is a amazing design good job with the spring theory
    and very resourceful goodjob amech3

    I like this one. Great way to salvage stuff.

    The crossbow will be done on july 10th, i will not be making an instructable but it will be for sale on ebay but i wiil let all of my followers on the instructables know when i put it on ebay.

    i saw your crossbow and remind me of van helsing's revolver crossbow and i got a few question to ask you:

    how does the bolt magazine turn after a shot ?

    is the bow reload by the motor at the back side ?

    what is the range of this crossbow?

    what about the pistol crossbow in robin hood and the men in tights? lol

    The motor retracts the bow string and the bow spring triggers a lever which is connected to a linkage which in turn rotates a spur gear that I have used as a ratchet

    Yes it is

    Keep us posted this looks awesome.

    I would buy a working one. Email me. nathan_Bellew@hotmail.com
