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:

What if I don't have that moter? can I just use a green one?

Lolman40001 month ago

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!

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!

Can you do this with the plain green motor?
Hiyadudez (author)  RyShark4 years ago
Possibly, but you will have to modify it.

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?
Hiyadudez (author)  Tornado964 years ago
Get looser rubber bands on the paddle things. Tell me if that works.

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! >:-( Ignorant brother...

It did work though! thanks!

BTW I'm pretty sure he's giving credit so..
can u make a smaller version that only uses 100 pieces :]
nope
i was talking to hiyadudez and shadowman39
