Introduction: Deluxe K'nex Pinball Machine

This is a K'nex pinball machine I built. I really hope you like it and vote for it. Also don't hesitate to the build your own and improve it. Please comment as well.

Step 1: Frontal Support

Step 2: End Support and Scoreboard

Step 3: Field Support

Under the playing field is a sort of exoskeleton. It consists of a large platform with railings and supporting ribs running through the middle and sides. Theses are essential to hold the weight of the field.

Step 4: Build Your Field!

This is the part to get creative. You basically build a court out of pieces laid side by side and connected together. And then you put walls and holes where needed to implement your tracks. (See video)

Step 5: Pins and Plunger

Step 6: Tracks

Step 7: Scoring

I score this game by time. I build a timer on to the scoreboard. Every minute = 100 points. For example If you were able to keep the ball alive for 1min. 35sec. you have 135 points. Make records and dominate all others!

You dominate all others when it comes to K'Nex! But then I may be biased since I'm your mom! ;) As far as I'm concerned, you're already a winner! Great work!

You may want to take a look around the site at other K'nex models before you make that judgement :-)
