Introduction: K'nex Counter

Hey guys, so here is the project I've been working on for the past three months. 

This is a counter that counts up to 99. It has two ten spoked wheels, that have the numbers 1-9 on them.  So when the first wheel get's up to 9, the next movement turns the second wheel to 1 and the first wheel to 0. It keeps doing this pattern all the way until both wheels get back to 0-0.  

The first thing I had to figure out when I was building this was how to get a wheel with 10 spokes.  That actually came pretty easy. (But they are kind of hard to put together).

The second thing I had to figure out was how to get the whole mech working. That it's self took a good month and a half.  The rest of the time was spent figuring out the face plate and finishing it up.

So, it might be a month or so after school started, but I hope you all like it.
Now let's hear some feedback.

author
shadowninja31 (author)2010-09-27

Wow I haven't seen you hear in a long time. Nice to know you are still here. Great idea, although if it was a little more compact that would be nice. But that will not deteriorate from my overall opinion as it is very cool.

author

There was no was to make it any more compact with the mech I used. Trust me I was trying for over three months.

author

Okay.

Video? It's one of those pointless kind of things that becomes impressive when you have to build it yourself. I'd still like something that's impressive as well as useful. Still, no one has tried out my piece dispenser idea.

MrSillyGuns (author)TheDunkis2010-09-26

sounds awesome, u should talk to Shadowman39 :D

author
Torpe (author)TheDunkis2010-09-26

A piece dispencer????? What????????

I wanna build!

Explain

author

Yup pretty much. Things always seem more impressive when you have to figure out how to make it work by scratch.

author

Fire is probably the best example. Thank god I've never tried it. XD

author

Exactly, not always hard just the pride in doing it yourself.

author
Senior Waffleman (author)2010-09-26

WOW!!! Ratings are 5*, that amazing!!!
