Knex Ball Machine: Dragonfire, new elements

Featured
Hi everyone

Here are some fotos and instructions of my new elements.
You can find them all in my second knex ball machine Dragonfire, if you want to see them working.
I hope everything is clear enough, if not feel free to ask.

And now let's get building!

sandroknexmaster (author)  Kona-chan1 year ago
Yep :D
Te veel ja? Geef dan maar wat aan mij! Ik heb nooit genoeg.. :D
sandroknexmaster (author)  dickheijboer1 year ago
Haha ik heb een beter idee!
Bouw een mega goeie ball machine, post hem NA 1 juli, en dan kan je ermee meedoen aan de knex-wedstrijd.
Bij de prijzen zit o.a. mega veel knex!
Ideaal voor u als je het mij vraagt :D
Sireus? Wow! Waar gaat dat van uit! Vertel pleas iets meer!
sandroknexmaster (author)  dickheijboer1 year ago
Het enigste wat tot nu toe geweten is, is dat de wedstrijd begint op 1 juli en dat de prijzen hopen knex zijn:
http://www.instructables.com/community/Prize-ideas-for-Knex-projects/
De wedstrijd wordt georganiseerd door instructables zelf, maar ik veronderstel dat ze samenwerken met knex, want ze moeten ook hun prijzen van ergens halen. En dan wordt er waarschijnlijk reclame gemaakt hier op instructables voor de knex-site, zo gaat dat meestal ook met de andere wedstrijden.
Nice! Haha dat kan ik idd wel gebruiken!

daredevil, a replacement I use for a knex ball is a super small wiffle ball...its like 1 to 1.5 inches wide. Anything in that range would work i think.

Nice! I'll be sure to contain these new elements in my next ball machine!
sandroknexmaster (author)  Jag561 year ago
Thanks, I can't wait to see it!
It won't be for awhile, probably next year unfortunately. Usually I don't go on a big ball machine spree so Yeah...:P
sandroknexmaster (author)  Jag561 year ago
Ok my next ball machine will be finished in about 2-3 months I think.
Cool!
I also don't have KNEX balls
sandroknexmaster (author)  daredevil4991 year ago
You can buy them here if you want:
http://www.knexusergroup.org.uk/acatalog/knex-user-group.html
Thanks, but I'm going to get them on ebay.
sandroknexmaster (author)  daredevil4991 year ago
I'm also going to buy some new parts on ebay. Especially white connectors, because I planned to build a GIANT white floor in my next ball machine.
When I have some more cash I'm going to buy a large lot of knex, I need a lot of whites too because those are the ones I have the least of.
How many knex pieces do you have?
sandroknexmaster (author)  daredevil4991 year ago
Euphoria used 17505 pieces and I think I didn't use about 7000-8000 pieces.
So my rough estimation is 24000-25000 (I'm not sure, it can be more, probably)
wow, I only have between 6000 7000 pieces.
I wish I had enough knex to build a Ball machine that large.:(
But I could probably build all the elements in the first picture 3 or 4 times:)
sandroknexmaster (author)  daredevil4991 year ago
When you have some knexballs you can also try to built a smaller ball machine.
They don't have to be 2 metres high to be good. =)

Nice! My favorite element is the Two balls divider.
sandroknexmaster (author)  KneXtreme2 years ago
Cool! You can use it for your next ball machine :D
I will indeed :)
