I have written a little article explaining my thoughts about how this one is related to two other 15th c crossbows.
Please forgive my stupidity, and my not asking earlier:
Would you please be so kind and post that article of yours?
It concerns a crossbow in the Royal Armouries Leeds, posts #88 and #89.
Thanks in advance,
and eagerly looking forward to some good reading,
