Okay, I'm making homemade internals for my nerf crossbow. I have everything down pat except for one thing: The crossbow catch. Does anyone know the dimensions of a homemade crossbow catch. Before you ask, I searched to no avail. I looked at Draconis's crossbow catches and tried to replicate that, but I don't know if my dimensions are correct (Drac, that's your cue to post).

From the directory:

There's a scale diagram.

I also have writeups for 3-4 types of homemade internals for the crossbow that I'll put up soon.

Yeah, I saw that. What do you mean by center thickness should be 1/16?

On the sides of the catches there are little lips. The thickness of those center parts is 1/16". In the paragraph above it, I said that I made a catch from 1/16" steel.
