We have completed construction of the frame for our new trebuchet, Janus. Unfortunately we don't have any pictures yet as the lighting in the workshop is still being installed, but we are moving forward. In a few weeks we hope to have the metals we need in, and we will go make those parts and then prepare for testing as soon as the weather breaks, which should be sometime in mid-to-late March. We are looking for some terrific distances, perhaps we can even launch a 2-pound projectile 1000 feet! It's not likely, but you never know...700+ feet should certainly happen.
