    Looking good Lars. I have yet to try and build something like this yet. How does it shoot?

    it shoots fine (now, because the string jumps over the bolt sometimes
    but my next one has an inbuilt string guide with an notch for the bolts

    Nice, you should post some blueprints, how did you make the bolt holder-in-placer?

    i have the blueprints but i wouldn´t recomment to built THIS one

    the bolt holter is from an old hand brush shovel :)

    Good work Lars. I would love to see the trigger mechanism if possible, but could maybe work it out from your photos so far. are there elastic bands inside to return the catch to the right position?
    Cheers:confused:

    Very nice! My first thought was how does it shoot, but Withak beat me to it!

    Very beautiful. I wonder whether the trigger is strong enough
