Trebuchet, Tabletop

After discovering that the double sized-machine I had built for the Carnegie Science Center was, in fact, too big, I went back and divided all my measurements in half. This gave me a machine nearly identical in dimensions to the Cheesechucker machine I had originally copied.

Trebuchet, Medium size

Cathy, the program director, was looking for something neat to do as a lobby activity. Something the kids can do during free time. She suggested a catapult.<br>What you want is a trebuchet, I said. A catapult uses a throwing arm under torsion. It needs to be hauled back to lock and load. A trebuchet, on the other hand, uses a counterweight which could be unloaded so that kids operating it don not have their teeth knocked out by a misfire. I got the job. :-)

Trebuchet, Wooden Desktop

The whole device stands about foot tall when unloaded and flings various things ten feet or more. Moreover, this is a nice introductory woodworking project that you can do with mostly basic tools. Make sure to check all of the images. A lot of the details are in the notes there.
