My Next Ball Machine

Hello everyone! I've started building my last large ball machine, and I'm doing something I've never done before... posting construction pictures! I'm excited about posting frequent updates. Since these updates will be weekly (and sometimes more frequent than that), I'm posting these pictures in a forum thread on SSCoasters right here. In this thread you'll find descriptions for the pictures and more information on what I plan to do with this ball machine. I recommend you check it out if you want to see updates. ;-)

Below I have a few pictures of the ball machine. I won't be posting here as often as in the construction thread, but there will be a few pictures added here from time to time. Again, explanations for the pictures are on the thread, so I won't bother posting them here (I'm lazy aren't I). Thanks for viewing!

How long until your next update, can't wait after seeing the first. I like your white floor layout a lot!

Unfortunately it won't be till mid December, unless I get something done over Thanksgiving break. And thanks!

hmmmmm..for some reason it says on the SScoasters forum that "Sorry. This person moved or deleted this image" is there a way to get around this?
Shadowman39 (author)  hunter9991 year ago
Sorry about that, Photobucket bugged up and won't show those images... But, the new album is here. In order to fix that problem I would have to re-embed everything.

wow! Thats really cool. You use metalic parts where people can't see them,and you use regular parts where people can see them. I get it

a few weeks ago we counted all our pieces and the number was shockingly small 6,670 parts (considering MISCOUNTING we most likely have 7,000).I think you have maybe 20,000 parts (from what I've seen).

Yeah, I like classic colors more than metallic. I have 30,000 to 40,000 pieces. Thanks!
I like classic too.But I seem to always run out after getting two inches off the ground (with the ball machine I mean)
REALLY annoying!
Don't say I need to get more parts!
:-D
I do too C-:
wow!!!

As far as I know, he has more than I do, and I have just under 41,000

Great! I'll definitely check this out every week.

Awesome! If I wasn't building a ball machine I would defiantly try to build along with you.
Shadowman39 (author)  KneXtreme1 year ago
Thanks! I build slow, so you may be able to catch up with me.
Cool
