drying time) with this meticulously engineered model kit. Individually
crafted of heavy, cabinet grade red oak and maple, this easy to assemble,
all hardwood trebuchet kit is designed to help you complete your project
quickly and easily.
Our trebuchet kit includes fully precut and drilled
frame parts, pins and axles, sling cord and sewn pouch, projectiles and
fully illustrated assembly and firing instructions. Unlike the flimsy,
snap together plywood trebuchet kits, our all hardwood trebuchet kit does
not require additional cutting, trimming or shaping.
Requires only white carpenter's glue and a few
bar clamps (not included) to assemble. Fits standard weight plates,
with 1" diameter hole, up to 5 1/4" diameter and 1 1/2" thick,
available at any local discount retailer or sporting goods store.
Once complete, this trebuchet stands 24 inches tall in the fired position,
14 inches tall in the cocked position and will throw a projectile up to
50 feet. Very easy to assemble, this trebuchet kit is extremely durable
and loads of fun.
Makes a great gift for your favorite medieval, Renaissance, siege engine,
SCA, Dark Ages, or RPG enthusiast, as well as students and teachers of
History, Warfare and Physics.
