Default early cranequins

Hi to everyone,

Im new in this forum and I have already read several interesting topics during the last few months.
I do a late fiftenth century reenactment and Im very much interested in crossbows. In order to reunite these two hobbies, Id like to rebuilt a late gothic crossbow with a horn and sinew prod that must be spanned with a cranequin. I already did quite many researches for early cranequins (from about 1475) but I didnt find many examples. Do you have good pictures of early gothic cranequins and maybe also mesurements? That would be really nice!

thank you in advance,
