RE: [SCA-Archery] Re: Looking for steel roller-nut
- By light I would mean less than 200 lb. But that is not using wooden dowel
rod material, but using a round sawn from a thick board and the notch cut
from the end grain of the round and the sear in the other end grain. Oh yea
do not even think about an axel for a wood nut. If it does not stay in the
"nut hole" nusfaden (sp) it in.
If for a crossbow, horn would be more period appropriate. The Delrin that is
available on Alcheminc.com is intended to substitute for horn. You will
still have to shape it yourself.
If the prod is light enough, it can be done from hardwood. I have even heard
of it being done as lamination.
