Making a Slingshot Trebuchet

A while back, Tom Stanton built a cool working trebuchet, but even though it was much smaller than the ones used in battle, it still wasn’t exactly portable. So, Tom set about building a pint-size version that can be used like a slingshot. We’re thinking it would be perfect for flinging wadded up paper at officemates.

This unusual slingshot is designed to fire full-size archery arrows instead of BBs. It uses 38 to 40 pounds of draw weight, and fits any Pocket Shot or Pocket Hammer handle, which looks like the right way to go from the video. An archery release glove is also required for safety. Not for kids.
