Re: Storm the Castle B

Ok, by now some people must think I'm living on the forums. Those people are right! Forums, trebuchet, school. So now I'm wondering...Should I make the strings to my projectile pouch short or longer? Thank you for answering my endless questions.

Re: Storm the Castle B

Another thing I should have had in my last post: wheels. I was going to put wheels on my trebuchet to make it moveable, as it will probably be heavy. But in my design, I decided to attach a piece of fishing line to a a nail or something similar to pull on and therefore trigger the arm to fall. But ...

Re: Storm the Castle B

Ok, I've read the Wiki article about this and it didn't clarify this..? I get the difference between a FAT and a hinged counter weight but everyone seems to favor a the FAT, what makes it the more favored trebuchet? Is it more accurate?
