Hey guys, we're back! Yes, me and Shadowman39 are back with, yet another, awesome ible!

 PS-If you subscribe to me, subscribe to Shadowman39 too. :-)

This time we decided to build a card shuffler. This neat gadget will shuffle your cards for you, so you won't have to do it. And, it's all motorized. It will fit any standard-sized poker or playing cards, so anyone can have one.

So, you likey? Of couse you do! Now move on to the next step to build it! If you don't want to, then... build it anyway. :-P

Edit: this has reached 4.50*!     ---     Thanks to everyone who rated! :-D

Shadowman39 worked hard on this video. :-D Here's the card shuffler in action:






Step 1: Parts List

Here's all of the pieces you'll need to build the card shuffler.
 

Rods: 261

  • green-149
  • white-79
  • blue-16
  • yellow-6
  • red-11
  • gray-0

Connectors: 178

  • dark gray-31
  • light gray-6
  • red-18
  • green-5
  • yellow-18

*Numbers may vary.

So, if you have all of these pieces, then let's shuffle on!  (pun intended... hehe)
 

<p>please help the wheel inside seems to be just going gently over the cards, and not moving them please help :-)</p>
<p>great this is cool</p>
<p>I will build this!</p>
do you have to use that kind of motor? <br>
yes
I made it with the blue motor and it works just fine. See.
<p>I Made this Card Shuffle machine and it works super good!!! super cool</p>
<p>What if I don't have that moter? can I just use a green one?</p>
<p>I made it! I had to mod it a little so I could use the blue motor. It works great with certain types of cards! </p>
<p>5 Star!</p>
<p>5 Star!</p>
<p>This is a great inspiration! I didn't have enough green rods, so I left some out in certain places. My only problem is that the cards come out one at a time like they're supposed to, but both sides come out at the same time, colliding in the middle and not forming a single pack. Do you know how I could fix this? Thanks!</p>

The thick ones.

What?
interesting
this is aamazing! i made it and i added two elastic bands to the things that hold the cards down because it sometimes stops feeding the cards, but its probly just my cards. thanks!
Can you do this with the plain green motor?
Possibly, but you will have to modify it.
I did it worked fine
it worked for me!
My brother is trying to use this for a science project at his school and he ran into a problem. The cards don't come out flowingly. ! comes out and then the rest come out in a pile. Any idea why he's having the problems?
Get looser rubber bands on the paddle things. Tell me if that works.<br><br>Even though anyone can use this, it would've been nice if he, or you'd have asked before just using it.
Didn't he? I TOLD HIM TO! &gt;:-( Ignorant brother... <br> <br>It did work though! thanks! <br> <br>BTW I'm pretty sure he's giving credit so..
