Bombs Away

Friday, January 13, 2006

Today, after three years of labour, my dad and I finished our trebuchet. It’s sort of like a catapult, only much more powerful and configurable. Currently, it stands around four feet high, and it throws almost seventeen feet with only about six pounds counterweight. Considering the counterweight can weigh up to forty pounds, we’re expecting a much larger throwing-rate.

Pictures possibly soon (if (when!) I get a camera).
