Step 5: Tower

The next arm will be attached to this tower. After you build it, combine it with the base. And then your tower will be one red rod higher than before!!!!! How awesome is that! :-D

1- One side of the tower.
2- The other side.
3- Now attach them together.
4- Combine it with the base. 
5- Another view.
6- Another view.

<p>Awesome lift... just finished and tested it... Now to try different motors on it to see if I can speed it up... its much slower than I am..</p>
My control rods keep snapping only on the right also the orange connector by motor keeps coming off please help asap
I did it (only I did it with four lifts instead of six - parts...annoying-)<br>Nice job!!
<p>This is awesome! I love how it runs so smoothly.</p>
This is one of the best lifts ever build! <br>Can you make this lift much higher if you use the K'nex 12v motor?
Thanks! And yes you can make it higher since that motor is stronger.
I fink I'm gonna to use that, but I'm already building again.. :)
Let me guess, it's a ball machine. :-P
How do you know that? You'r scary!
I guess I'm good at guessing. ;-)
This is very similar to the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Retrograde-Knex-Ball-Machine-InstructionsNot-My-/step5/Stepper-Lift-System/" rel="nofollow">stepper lift</a>
Hm, not too much, but the modified stepper lift is similar to that. :-P
You'r pro at guessing! Is there no &quot;World championship guessing&quot;? And I'm building like Austron, but only one wall.. I got not enough red rods..
Make blue rod towers instead. :-P I always seem to have red rods left over because of making blue rod towers. And I definitely don't have enough pieces to make a ball machine go around my room.
Yes, you'r right, but if you make high blue rod towers they are not stabilize. And don't you have enough pieces? You got more than Astron!
I don't have more than Austron, he has 50,000+ pieces. And if I were to make a room machine I'd want it to be very dense. Blue rod towers can be as strong as red rod ones if they are the same size.
Hmm, but you got much more than I got.. And if you make blue rod towers with the size of red rod tower I got never enough blue rods..
Yeah I don't have enough blue rods either. :-P
Does Shadowman have not enough blue rods?! You got 10 times more blue rods than I got!
you can NEVER have enough pieces. <br>right now for apocalypse i'm already low on yellow connectors.
Haha, sure it is.. But now, I have bought so much, I've enough for at least a month! ;P
well, in the past 2 months i only bought like 8k knex...... :P
Well, the last month I only bought 50 kilo K'nex.. :D
how many pieces is that?
Uhh, I don't know, but that's very much!
lol<br>how much knex do you have in total?
Around 150 kilo.. <br>
You have more pieces than I do, I only have around 40,000 and you have around 60,000.
let's through gumps collection in here.....<br>was it 200k or 300k?
I thought it was almost 400k.
Just checked, 380k<br>http://www.sscoasters.net/forum/f9/how-much-knex-do-you-own-6458/index26.html#post368262
Ah yes, I remember that topic. He's just so glad to brag about his collection. :-P
lol, i wish i had that much knex :P
I think every Knexer does.
i saw you had a typo first :P 'ever'<br>/me hides
But I corrected it, so it's all good. :-)
I would've have been too lazy for that x.x
could be &gt;.&gt;<br>Does anybody have mroe knex than gump? ^.^
Not that I know of. Except maybe someone who works at Knex.
but they don't get to use all the pieces in a nice, big, model x.x
They can if they make one of those Big Builds.
but i bet they are never allowed to, due to budget stuff....
No, I got not more than you, that can not be...
In the advertisement which I bought they said 50 kilo, And that's 1/3 of my whole collection.. So I think it was not 50 kilo because I can't have more than you, sorry..
Well, without the 50 kilos, we'd have the same amount.
I have not more than you, never and never!
without your latest package we'd have the same amount, i believe &gt;:(
also, somehow recently there have been tons more comments between the two of us on ibles ^.^
