    How is the 7 small ball arms supposed to work? is it in one of your ball machines?

    All of these elements are in my ball machine Dragonfire, there's a link in the intro of this instructable. There you can watch the video :)

    Hey man I love your creations. I used to be really into knex but found other interests later. I recently came upon 25000 piece collection again, and being stuck inside due to winter, I organized it all and am getting back into making stuff like ball machines, which you give me good ideas. Keep the good work up :)

    That's nice to hear! Did you already post stuff before? I'm curious to see what you come up with.


    Great elements like in all of your ball machines :D. I dont want to embarrass you but in the introduction you spelt 'photos' as 'fotos'. sorry :/
