So there I was knee deep in hand grenade pins and twinkie wrappers wait no that is another story, I was sitting at my fathers house with my brother in law when someone said catapult. All heck broke loose next thing you know Gary says I think we should make one to chuck punkins. Dad chimes in that if we do it at a smaller level that the show he is in. They both decide that because I do some wood working that I should build it. I of course after a few brews am fully one hundred percent in.
The plan is to make a torsion catapult that is made from construction grade 2×4’s mainly to stay cheap and see if we can. It will be 4’ by 6’ and 4’ tall with an arm 6’. I am estimating the cost at a little less than 70 bucks each for the three of us one you get the rope, lumber, and such.
Looking for ideas or areas to watch and or anyone who has done it.
