Ballista refurbishment day three.

Firstly putting together various mountings for the stand. I make everything possible from wood. Not because its more period but rather because I work in wood.

This is the rear stand mount on the under side of the tray.

And this is the mounts on the front stand.

Meaning of course that the ballista can be mounted now.

After the woodwork some metal working because thats what washers are made of. Being mild steel they need to be cleaned and painted regularly.

I didn’t dismount the counterplates and just painted them in place.

Behold the sexy!

Tomorrow there will be assembling of the skiens.
