Windlass to medieval crossbows

You can span / tension all the crossbows listed below with this windlass. Customers often ask, up to what draw weight a crossbow can be spanned just with hands (without windlass).

Most men can draw a crossbow up to 75 kg (165 lb) by hand. A draw weight of about 110 kg (242lb) can be drawn by hand only approx. by one of ten. Men tend to exaggerate their strength. Believe us, you will not manage it! In addition, you need the windlass when you replace the strink from about 54 kg (119lb) draw weight of the prod.

  • The metal hooks for the string are made from wire of approx. Ø 10 mm
  • The rotating wooden handles on cranks are approx. 108 mm long
  • The steel handles are made of prisms of  approx. 10 * 17 mm profile
  • The ropes are winded up on a shaft of approx.  Ø 22 mm

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

Why you cannot deliver swords or daggers to Switzerland?

Dear customers from Switzerland, we are very sorry that we cannot deliver swords, daggers, sabres, maces, combat axes, flails etc. to your country. We meet with bureaucratic obstacles at all products that either are or just look as a weapon again and again. We receive all consignments to Switzerland automatically back with an explanation "subject to the import permit." Our logistics partners told us the following: "both goods that are sold only to persons over 18 years and goods that merely look as weapons are subject to import permit. (For example: toy guns are sellable without restrictions in Switzerland, BUT are subject to import permit issued by the Swiss authorities!)". We have found only the following solutions so far: (1) The customer secures collection at our address in the Czech Republic himself (his logistic partner can handle this procedure better), (2) the customer gives us a delivery address in the EU. The disadvantage is that we have to charge the VAT tax in both cases.
