Our Plan For Making a Trebuchet
Transcript of Our Plan For Making a Trebuchet
MAKING!!!. THE FRAME The Throwing
Arm THE CHASSIS THE TRIGGER MECHANISM THE SLING THE FINAL DESIGN THIS CONCLUDES OUR PLAN FOR MAKING
WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT! The throwing arm shall be 272.38mm long and it shall have three holes in the middle part of the throwing arm to adjust the length of the arm nd where you place it. The Chassis is very clever and simple and is attractive as well it will be adjustable and will have a raised part at the end to give it more momentum for the eventual throw for the trebuchet the chassis will use 8 lollipop sticks stuck together with glue but arranged differently and will consist of a nail The sling will look similar to this the projectile will look like this but the poach on the sling itself will be made of leather and will be a lot stronger then the one shown in this picture below. The trigger is a very simple one which can be very effective when used it is easy to put together as it is just drilling an extra whole at the top of the throwing arm and then you are going to thread a long piece of string which you would hold down at both ends then bring it right down on the table then release Our frame design will be a fairly simple A-frame. It will be composed of 7 lollipop sticks either side of the trebuchet. Some will be fixed together with glue, while others will be mounted on an axle, either for a throwing arm or for stability.
