I have had some requests to create an ible for this coin pusher. I am using a drill as a motor to turn the axle because I don't have a k'nex motor. I am sure that you can easily modify it so you can use a normal K'nex motor. Please rate well and subscribe.

There are 14 of the half-moon and red connecters. Connect the pieces together with green rods. You also need to cut off each end of the 2 red rods so that the fit in the coinpusher without jamming.

That's actually really awesome! I think you should invest in making it larger and adding the tilting port to where you add the coins, if you can.
K'nex_Freak (author)  apples!!!!!3 years ago
I would do this but that is all of my k'nex used up. I am looking into buying a load more off ebay.
Understandable. Anyways, I hope to see more like this in the future!
