We do a yearly pumpkin-chunking w/ a traditional counterweight trebuchet, but I was considering building a floating arm trebuchet. The thought of resetting it multiple times seems daunting.As a second thought, I wanted to share the trigger we built to release. The kids were having a difficult time w/ pulling the pin from the overlapping eye bolts, so we built this... much easier w/ the heavier weights. Crude image, but you get the idea...
You mentioned ~750# in counterweight. Can you describe the process for resetting it?
