it looks like it could break any moment. 1*
Ahahaha!!!!! Funniest thing ever!
Mr Cheeseo (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
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.
Mr Cheeseo (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
Triangles are the strongest shapes.
You might want to put layers on it then.
Mr Cheeseo (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
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.
Mr Cheeseo (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
What do you mean?
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
