Building A Trebuche

Recommended Posts

I want to build some trebuches with my students next semester, but I can't find plans for a decent size. Are there any engineers out there that can help us out? I want them bigger than the small desk-top models, but small enough that we can afford to make 10 or more to have a targeting contest.

You might have heard of the famous Mullet Toss tournament they have at the FloraBama beachfront bar in Perdido every year? It's a huge 4 day event. Beach, beer, bikinis, and throwing dead mullets. Awesome.

Well, I thought of the next big thing: CARPAPULT!!
