Trebuchet - not the font/typeface

www.trebuchet.com: Trebuchet.com * Dedicated to the art of hurling *

Now available, these two previously out-of-print books!

Catapult Design, Construction and Competition
The Projectile Throwing Engines of the Ancients

The convertible tabletop trebuchet!: This small trebuchet is fully functional and is based on true trebuchet mechanics.
It can be converted from a hanging counterweight model to a fixed counterweight (and back!) in seconds! Great for hurling missiles across the room!

Be sure to visit our other web site at:
The ancient Roman engine of war, Mangonel, also known as an Onager. This fully functional model is professionally engineered and is as historically accurate as possible. It really works and can throw golfballs, potatoes, eggs, tennis balls and more!
