Readying Plans for Download

Okay, it's been close to 2 months since the last real site update, and no, those Jeckyl and Hyde Trebuchet plans are still not done. They are very close, however, and time permitting, they will be released pretty soon. There are only a few more assembly tips and some formatting to do, so all that is needed is some time. That has been rather lacking in the last two months. They've been crazy, and by the end of the day, there is no energy left to work on them. Hence the lack of a release. Some site maintenance is also sorely needed, but those plans will be released first. Vacation is coming up in less than a week, so they theoretically could be uploaded then. Quite possible. Stuff from this year's World Championship of Punkin Chunkin will also get released, lots of pictures to be uploaded there. Hang in there guys!

Use "common sense" when operating trebuchets and catapults. Even little ones can be dangerous. Do not place anything you are not willing to lose in the plane of the arm rotation (this includes yourself, body parts, car windshields, cameras, etc). These catapults and trebuchets are capable of throwing just as far backwards as forwards, and the use of a backstop of some sort is recommended, though the use of one does not make the region behind it safe.

Also, just because the throw got away safely downrange does not mean the end of the danger. The arm is likely still swinging wildly along with the counterweight, and there is a sling whipping around. One thing many people fail to take into account is this sling; some people put a metal ring on the slip end of the sling and this ring can HURT when whipping around!

Have fun hurling, but please KEEP IT SAFE!!!
