Negative on the projecting shield mentioned yesterday.  We will see if the crushed fibres in the hickory deepen or become untenable.  Right now, the depression in the wood serves to more fully lock the whole limb into the bundle. 

I sure wanted to fix it by welding on armour plate.  Occam’s razor can be such a bitch.

    Greetings from Finland!

    I see that you have made a very impressive piece of equipment! awesome craftsmanship, I have to say. I’m making a similar, yet not nearly as powerful engine. You can see it in the link there- sorry, it’s all in finnish…
