Catapult

Unread postAuthor: WOW!! » Mon Jul 31, 2006 1:30 pm

Some of you might now that I was going to build a trebuchet for the pumkin chuckin contest. But seeing as I need about 7/8 of a ton it is impractical for me. So Iam going to build a catapult. It will use garage door springs. I have a pic it is hard to explane. But on the cross bar should I tilt it so that when the throwing arm hits it, it will send the pumkin at a 45* angle? O and I need help picking a name.Image

I have a 3 foot at the pivot treb, with 125 lbs. of wheel weights melted down and cast into 9 inch pie pans. I'm working on my stock pile towards 3000 lbs.
Trebs only fly apart forwards, or backwards. Spring pults go in all directions.
Be carefull. R.B.

The Steel Beast! Also are you using a sling to launch the ammo? I've heard its 200% better then a spoon like arm.
