oh, um sorry, your trebuchet is good as well.

You seem to be very cocky. I dont see an instructable of your catapult on your page. This is what it says,"The Great Knex Warrior has not posted any instructables yet... "

I'll put a pic up when I take one of it :)

dude, im made this and it hardly throws far, and isnt the barrel wat u put the thing ur firing in a bit small???

A trebuchet is NOT a catapult. Catapults rely on a spring or something similar. Trebuchets use a falling weight. This is a trebuchet. +1 for size! _

i dont think its technically called a trebuchet but its more like a catapult. Nice catapult. If anyone can make a trebuchet that is pretty big not small and flings stuff pretty far please post it. Consiter it a challenge. thanks

yutzwagon (author)2007-12-23

How about a supplies list? I cant tell what size sticks you used, let alone how many.
