[Request] Trebuchet
« on: December 18, 2017, 03:09:46 am »
I've been working on a mechanism that engages/disengages a motor, and I realised that I could use it to reset a trebuchet.
A trebuchet could be used to throw a ball with the use of a heavy counterweight.
Does anyone have instructions for a trebuchet that can be used for a lift (or element) of a ball machine?

I have made an old instruction of an automatical catapult with the same concept of your trebuchet, but with a trebuchet, I think that the ball can fly on a bigger distance.
