The bow and crossbow has become an essential part of our history as a tool for both hunting and warfare. As time goes on however, its use has shifted from a survival tool to something that is used for recreation and sport. Nonetheless this does eliminate the fact that under the wrong hands (experienced or inexperienced), any type of crossbow can still be considered a very lethal weapon.

TenPoint – Top of the line Tenpoint, remains a first in crossbow innovation, accuracy and technology. Today they hold 12 patents with many more currently in the developmental phases. TenPoint holds the patent for trigger technology unsurpassed by any other crossbow on today’s market. They also hold the patent on the DFI (dry fire inhibitor), ensuring their crossbows can not be fired without an arrow. Their patented accudraw is a user friendly cocking aid to consistently load the crossbow every time. TenPoint’s motto has always been “superior value, for your hard earned dollars”. They received “Inside Archery’s” Best Buy Award for 2005 and 2006.

Early crossbow strings were made of hemp as it was one of \* the strongest and least elastic fibers available. As crossbows evolved the early ones could be cocked by hand, but as man improved them and made them stronger, they became harder to cock. Hand cranking devises were installed on crossbows, allowing the most powerful of all bows to be cocked.

The first thing that any how to make a crossbow text or guide will tell you is the types of tools that you need if you are making a crossbow solely from wood. These generally include a Saw (of a couple of different types of saw such as a Circular Saw, Chain Saw for larger chunks of wood and possibly a small Hacksaw); different sizes of Drill bits (you are going to need to drill some holes to put everything together); Screws; Rulers; Sandpaper; a Pocket Knife (or a Draw Knife to strip the bark off the wood if you are getting it from the forest) and you will also need a Wood Chisel that is half and in across. This might seem like a lot of tools and items, yet you are going to need them all especially if you are making many crossbows.

If you modify your tool significantly in response to the kind of creature you are hunting, the changes may be too small to be detectable during the first sessions of practice, but you will discover the details of the modifications after a few hours of holding the crossbow in your hand (like when you are in the actual hunt). Allow a few weeks to a few months to analyze and adjust your crossbow so you can get accustomed to the variations, especially those involved in balance details.
