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

    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.

    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?

    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
