This is a folding star that is made out of Knex.

I came up with the idea when i was searching things on Google. And saw a cool folding star.
So then i decided to make one out of Knex.

This Knex star uses very little pieces and is easy to build.

Thanks, that means alot .
Agreed, any chance of throwing some better pics in? Some of them are a little blurry?
Hiyadudez (author)  gmjhowe5 years ago
A little late reply but...

I think they are good enough for the thing you are making.
IN one of my instructables, there are no blurry pictures, all macro and perfect, and my instructions are very good. Whatam I missing?
they look good enough for what you build.

It used to be 4.38 ( The highest rated one, but it went down... look, maybe you can see this.) That is when i search knex, and clicked rating, as you see it was ahead of IAC's heavy cannon and everything else.
