Introduction: Knex Ball Machine Element: Turning Zig Zags

Picture of Knex Ball Machine Element: Turning Zig Zags

Hey everyone,

I've designed a few other turning or tipping zig zags but this is definitely the best one so far. It works 99% of the time, it works very smooth and is easy to build. You can always watch the video to see it in action.

If there are any problems/ questions feel free to ask me in the commets below.

Thanks for watching/ building,

Thibault Art.

If you don't have the small black tyres, you can just use 2 blue spacers per tire instead.

When I saw this I new I needed to make this!!! This element is so entertaining and is helpful on my k'nex ball machine I'm making right now.

Yah!!! My machine will take longer because I got more k'nex for Christmas and tore down the machine for a better base and better supports. I kept most of the elements to put on my knew ball machine i'm building. It might take a while because I'm busy at the moment. When I finish the ball machine I will send you a link under this comment. I will give you credit because you gave me some of the elements. Thanks, KneXFAN200
