Introduction: Knex Ball Machine Bromine

Picture of Knex Ball Machine Bromine
Here we are. My 4th knex ball machine. It has a total of 9.2 paths, 7 new elements, about 50' of track, and 4 lifts, including Shadowman39's double helix lift. It took me about 3 months to build and edit it. Enjoy the video.

I like the mood it sets with fuzzy camera and mostly dark, metallic, pieces. Bravo

That's a very nice ball machine you have there.... it would be a shame if something were to happen to it....

KneXtreme (author)jmiester2012-02-13

Thanks! I'm working on another ball machine right now. It should be published this weekend.

np and nice!

What is that motor on slide 4?

KneXtreme (author)Leigo Andre2012-01-12

It's a duel powered motor. I bought a set off of ebay that came with it, but the buttons to control it were garbage. So I hooked up a A/C adaptor to it.

Leigo Andre (author)KneXtreme2012-01-22

Oh. Thanks!

MegaMetal8 (author)2011-08-21

Does the hammer lift gain quite alot of height for the balls? could you tell me about it, im probably gonna build a ball machine soon so please explain.

Or do you know any good lifts which get 2-3 ft of height which dont take many pieces? Thanx

Anyway. GR8 Ball machine 5*

that would be awesome!

MegaMetal8 (author)martijnb952011-08-24

What would?

martijnb95 (author)MegaMetal82011-08-24

A ball machine made by you :-)

MegaMetal8 (author)martijnb952011-08-25

Yeh dude, thanks. If you sub (or are) when its realeased you'll see it.

The hammer lift failed so im using a chain lift and maybe a custom lift by me if it works

To tell you the truth I'm not quite sure how high it can hit a ball. I will be testing that after Bromine is down. But I'm pretty sure the more weight you add the higher it will go. I actually had to take some weight off. It was so powerful it hit it up past the first arm lift and almost to the other one. Probably a lift that wouldn't take up much pieces would ether be a chain lift or some type of arm lift.

MegaMetal8 (author)KneXtreme2011-08-22

Ok thanks

martijnb95 (author)2011-08-23
