Random Stuff

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by mikehunt042084, Oct 25, 2012.

  1. I have a bunch of books (in pdf) and small pdf "how tos" on subjects like blowgun making and shooting, bow and arrow making, potato guns (combustion, pneumatic, and hybrid), slings, catapults (seige weapons), flamethrowers, homemade bazookas for airsoft, a little bit of everything. If someone had an inkling to get some info on some random subject I would be more then happy to put my E-hoarding to a good use. Just post a subject and I'll see what I have on it. (This includes over 6 gigs of books on chemistry and physics as well, I'm kinda a turbo nerd at times.)

  4. Can do, I have plans and how tos on many different kinds of bows, I'll see what I still have around and post them hopefully later today. I'll also look around and find my book on archery, it's for teaching youngsters how to shoot bows but will work for any age.

  6. Well providing you can read and follow direction as well as an average nine year old yes, it should work well for you. lol

    Thanks man. It is a lot to read. I think i gonna print it and make a book of it. I prefer reading on paper. From what i have seen it looks like very useful and lots of details. Just great. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28">
     
  9. I made sure to skim it before I posted the link, glad I could be of help.

    Im interested in the siege engines (a year ago I wrote an essay about them!).Thanks a lot! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">
     
  11. All I have on siege engines right now is a how to on a trebuche and I believe I still hve one on a scorpion (Siege crossbow), but I will look through my collection. I should have some files on tortion catapults and the like as well. I am working on getting a website together to post these files for ease of download. Give me a few days, it's a little hecktic programming html with a 2 year old running around and trying to help lol.
     
  12. I got the site up, hopefully I'm not so rusty I fubar'd the links but there should be files on assorted bows and a couple catapults. These aren't my books yet, I'm still sorting my collection, but some nice how tos I have collected that were most helpful. I will PM you guys the link so my bandwidth doesn't go so quickly.
