Introduction: Knex Ball Machine, Project Starter


Hey everyone as you know I build a lot of things, mostly guns. I wanted to take a break from that so i got an idea from Blue Mullet to make a ball machine. I put the idea aside for a while, but the more I thought about it I got more interested. I took a look around instructables and was amazed by all of the creativity. For my first ball machine I wanted to start out with a medium sized one, but more simple than complex. It has 2 main paths and 2 sub paths. I know that doesn't sound like that big of a deal, but I think it's good for my first. That is also why I called it project starter as it is my first ever attempt at a ball machine. It includes more of the common elements such as the spiral. Well don't forget to check out the video and to rate, comment, and subscribe if you want more from me.

how is micro knex?

author
KnexFreak360 (author)Sorunome2011-02-21

well the sizing is off and its kinda hard to get used to. I don't usually use them though but it depends what you are going to use them for. I don't recommend them for guns.

Sorunome (author)KnexFreak3602011-02-22

and i don't like guns that much! :D

Nice work. Why don't you put something at the end of that massive slope? (loop, banking turn etc.) It is just a shame that the ball just drops down it, wasting its energy all in one go.
