Project #46 Catapult

Anyone who has seen me at a maker faire recently might have seen a predecessor of this little catapult design. I've been wanting to make one for a while but I just never seemed to get the parts right. I sat down and gave it some serious effort this week and I came up with this one. The power is all supplied from a skein of 1mm nylon string and it packs enough oomph to kick the little balls all the way across my office at work. (svg here)
