A mini-powerhouse, this precision engineered trebuchet uses guillotine action and a plunging beam to maximize potential energy and a floating arm to convert that energy into projectile motion. The result is an ancient machine powered by modern science that can send a golf ball flying through the air for nearly the length of a full football field.
Detailed instructions and high quality hardwood pieces that have been pre-cut and pre-drilled are all provided, so you can construct a finished model in a day.
This kit is professionally engineered, designed and manufactured in the USA. Made with 100% hardwoods, each part is precision carved by computer controlled machinery for a guaranteed fit and accuracy.
Note: This is a functional model intended for educational demonstrations of physics. It contains a fast moving arm and projectile that can cause injury if you make contact when firing. Use only under strict, competent adult supervision. 34" tall, 18" long and 12" wide when built.
