I'll go medevil on your ass...

I started building a trebuchet tonight at a buddy's shop.

Going to hopefully finish it tomorrow. No drawings, no plans... just kinda went for it so it's not going to be perfect, but I'm betting it will launch steel ball bearings at least 50 feet.

Will get pics as soon as it's done.

I had some classmates, graduated mechanical engineers now, who built a trebuchet one spring break behind the engineering building, and took it down tot he grounds department to fire. They used some old giant cast iron weights totaling about 1000lbs for the counterweight. Thing had a huge, deadly ass piece of rebar for the finger that held the rope and projectile. We were glad no one was dumb enough to get in it's way, especially with the fairly shitty safety they devised.
