Hey you really need to have bigger towers if you can or have one big tower and build off of that and that might really help you incase if you build another one it may collapse but this is a good ball machine i'll give you a 5/5

Wow dude, its great! But perhaps you need to add some more supports... Just in case of.

its gone now check out my other machine i am working on
Btw, did you knew there is a special Knex catagory? Because this one is posted under "kids" (which is the reason I never saw this before).
That's pretty good for a first attempt. My main suggestion is you should add cross-braces to the support towers so they'll be sturdier. I notice one of the towers is leaning a little, which is why I suggested that. Still pretty good, though.

looks really flimsy on the supports, on the first picture one of the towers is bending. Good machine though, you have a lot of parts :P
knexfreak95 (author)  The Jamalam5 years ago

knexfreak95 (author)  JAKE8565 years ago
wooooooooooooooow well do you know who i am
man I thought I would be the first to comment... oh well. It looks really nice the paths are awesome only you lack supports and the supports you put in are weak, and bending. 4/5 stars

i did that on perpus so the ball had some rum to look better
Ok I see But that was my brother, He accidentally posted on my account.

I thought you knew!!!! Oh well, He's The_Burrito_Master
It looks kind of unstable, but I can't wait for it to be finished!
