Re: [SCA-Archery] Goat's foot lever?
- Hi, Jon. Yes, I know of one! I bought one from them in 2010. They may not have them anymore, but check with them anyway. They are DARKWOOD ARMORY.COM. They have a nice aluminum prod. These folks seem to be the only one still making cocking levers, or used to. As I remember, the price wasn't cheap either. I will send you the email I still have from explaning rod placement, etc. I hope this helps you out. YIS, Abner.
>We now have a blacksmith on staff, forging the ends of our fencing blades. He is adept at working harden-able steel alloys and is certainly capable of producing goats foot levers. I never engineered one since we don't produce complete crossbows, just the metal components. If someone has plans or a good example, we can make them. They will be expensive to produce unless several people order at the same time. In the latter case we can make a half dozen and spread the engineering costs out a bit.
