Lego Catapult

it uses torsioanl pressure for its power


arm is under load



here are several movies of it working (it fires a marble about 30 feet).
my cat got interested in the marbles

Sweet dude. I loved legos when i was a kid. My friend and I used to build lego catapults and have wars with them. We would setup a couple of the castle sets on either side of the room and then destroy each others castle with steelies.
