Sure I'll bite. What do you need.
yay! i need someone who did some more in practice.. and since i dont think i found the holy grail this is it. you have the torsion catapult ]http://www.stormthecastle.com/catapult/images/torsion_catapult/close-up-of-mangonel-strings.jpg combined with a bow.http://pic100.picturetrail.com/VOL1045/3759027/18347161/377783032.jpg (so good with paint XD) but i want it low budget.. i have two hammer handles (light and strong) and some 3mm normal white rope. need a wooden block i think but what kind of wood is strong enough ? will it even work ? and what do i get to tighten the ropes and make it stay tight ? i'm dutch so dont mind the grammar
