Mini Floating Arm Trebuchet
No Glue! Build it in under ten mintues!
This mini version of our World Famous Floating Arm Trebuchet is a real powerhouse in a desktop sized package. It can hurl anything from marbles to golf balls across the room or across the yard! The trebuchet is essentially a gravity powered energy conversion machine, turning potential energy into kinetic energy and using it to throw a ball. It's a great way to see classical mechanics in action!
It stands sixteen inches tall, thirteen inches long and nine inches wide. Just big enough to see some real action, but not too big to keep on a bookshelf.
Precision cut by computer controlled machinery from top-quality 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood -- the best available. The extremely precise cutting process guarantees that all parts fit, and fit right, with no glue required. And not only does it go together easily, but this kit is designed to perform awesomely too. This kit was personally designed by professional trebuchet engineer Ron Toms.
The Trebuchet Kit comes with everything you need to get started slinging! All the computer-cut, snap-together wooden pieces, axles, a trigger, sling and pouch, and four wooden missiles! Assembly time: Only ten minutes or less.
We've put a lot of time and effort into making this kit as easy and complete as possible. It's a fun way to learn about physics and engineering!
