Dodging in and out of the holiday festivities,  I was able to get a little more done on Firefly’s nether regions.


The pawls,  sight ladder and cocking levers are all that is left to be done on the winch assembly.    The latter will require their own set of pawls to engage the ratchet teeth.   If none of that makes any sense to you, stay tuned.   All will be revealed soon.

By “soon”,  I mean of course, in “catapult time”.  Einstein’s notion of time dilation has nothing on all us Earth bound catapult makers.  Days equal weeks.  Weeks equal months.  Months equal years. Very frustrating if you aren’t into long courtships and willful acts of gestation.
