Introduction: Knex Ball Machine: Uprising

Hey peeps!

I'm proud to present my most recent ball machine, UPRISING!!!

I'm very pleased with how this came out. IT contains 6 lifts and 7 paths with 2 new elements and took about 10 months to build (and then another 3 months to film and edit because of my laziness). Balls travel throughout the paths encountering elements such as loops, mazes, half-pipes, twisty track, ball arms and several other elements. 

The lifts include:
Small wheel lift
Small arm lift
Alternating Arm lift
Chainsaw lift
Single helix lift (varioation of Shadowman39's double helix lift)
Jigsaw lift


This machine was a total joy to build. My puppy is also a huge fan of the machine as it loves to run around following the balls as they roll around the contraption. Hope you guys enjoy it! :D

How many k'nex do you even have????????????????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????/?? Nice Job I can't belive you've done this!!!!!

I was wondering if you could help me or give me a tip on this. I always get stuck on creating successful turns. it really frustrates me. I can create custom coasters like KnEx would premake but whenever I do this I get stuck and give up.
