New Project.

Coming to a scene of utter devastation near you (if you live in Palmerston North) early 2010.


Yes it is to scale. The throwing arm is 6.6 metres long and its tip will be about 10.5 metres in the air. Primary ammunition will be bowling balls.

Because I can.

    my goodness me, what a big erection!

    Can you talk us through the metrics please Murray?

  2. Murray says:

    It stands 34 1/2′ high and has a 22′ throwing arm.

    It is slightly larger than the machines Richard I had at Acre.

    Old Fat Sailor asked me to let you know he came through the surgery with flying colors. Still hospital bound and grouchy as a bear without a kidney, but now cancer free according to the docs.


  4. Murray says:

    Outstanding. Thanks for letting us know.

    Tell him to cheer up or I’ll smack him one.

  8. Leonidas says:

    how big is the counterweight, and what do you expect the sling velocity to be?.

  9. Murray says:

    Between 250 and 500 kgs. Missile will be doing about 140/160 k/h.

    Recomend you don’t get in the way.
