The refitting of a ballista

Scipio is back in the fold for a refit. I’m about to go hunting sponsors and I need something shiny.

Scipio is currently rigged for stone throwing meaning the tray is set lower than usual so I’ll be making a new one to carrrying sharps.

Today was stripping off the fittings and getting the wood for a new stand and the tray. If I can dig out on of the spare triggers I’ll make a second stone tray as well. Also on the card is a spanner since Scipio has never been tensioned to full potential. Lets see if we can do better than the previous 160 metres.
