The Crossroads of the Aether

Just finished Watching "9". Twice... in a row. IT WAS THAT AWESOME!

I am now thinking about trying to make number 5's crossbow. The basic components look fairly simple but I'm not sure how the catch is going to work.

I know at this time are going to need

  • 1 Old-style key
  • 2 Springs (Probably from those clicky pens)
  • Bailing twine
  • Eyelet hook
  • Sowing and Fishing needles

I tried pausing the video the one time they showed the catch but there was lots of motion blur. Additionally because it was animated they used a couple of shortcuts that that mean you could not actually make it  exactly as shown in the movie and have it actually work.

It would require more baling twine. 20% more at least...
