Well in my experience the only part that breaks frequently is the two vertical orange pieces connected by the vertical blue rod made in step 1 picture 11. That is a guide I forgot to post a picture of. I will fix it immediately.

ok, but still, it just looks like a few triangles.

Triangles are the strongest shapes.

You might want to put layers on it then.

You mean pointlessly ruining the simplicity of the project to make it look cooler?

*sigh* look, my point is, this would have been perfectly acceptable 2 years ago.

he means, knexing has developed to a point that is past the spot where this crossbow is now today, it is more appropriate to make it cooler, not simpler I realize that this is a relatively old post, so dont complain about that

use tracks (treads on the knex tractor) on the quiver so it form fits to your body
