Introduction: Dragon Jewel Ball Machine Preview

Picture of Dragon Jewel Ball Machine Preview
Here's the awaited preview of my new ball machine Dragon Jewel. This will be a themed ball machine once completed. So far it includes 3 lifts: The Semicircle lift, the conveyor belt lift, and the reverse arm lift.
The last picture is a little teaser of what to expect in th theming of the ball machine. ;-)


Please comment with any questions you have.
Enjoy and thanks for viewing! :-)

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2012-04-17

Shadowman39 (author)Tornado962012-04-17

You have lots of lifts to post, including ours. :-P

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392012-04-19

yeah, haha. I should probably finish em. Darn homework...

Shadowman39 (author)Tornado962012-04-19

You're on break! What you should say is darn tennis.

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392012-04-20

I love tennis. I play cos I want to not cos I have to. I enjoy Tennis just as much as K'nex. :P

Sorunome (author)Tornado962012-04-21

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2012-04-21

We're talking about real life sports, not Wii. :-P

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2012-04-18

Just wait to see it like everyone else. :-) It should be done soon anyway, maybe in a week.

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392012-04-19

I can't wait!

Sorunome (author)Sorunome2012-04-19

How did that double-comment? FAIL! :D :D :D
Speaking of a bug:
They finally fixed the rating bug!
Even thought I liked the look of the old starts moar..... :(

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2012-04-19

And the old one also gave an exact number, now it seems to just be half stars. Oh well, the old old rating system was still better than both old and new.

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392012-04-19

Yeah, true

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2012-04-19

I just found out that forum topics are still the old system.

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392012-04-20

Instructables is doing wiered things....

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392012-04-19

I can't wait!

Shadowman39 (author)Tornado962012-04-16

Just rebuild it! It shouldn't take too long. You can also make instructions while you're at it.

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392012-04-17

hmm maybe. Anyone else agree?

Sorunome (author)Tornado962012-04-18

Yes, rebuild them!
