I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

I have an old Popular Mechanics or some such that has crossbow plans using a car's leaf-spring.

If I remember correctly, the guy hack-sawed an Austin-Heally spring into a bow shape (double taper). He also made his trigger mechanism out of a used cue ball (as in billiards).

I saved the plans, but have never tried it. Love the old PopMech mags.
