Hey guys, this is some little side project of my new knex ball machine, a differential!

Hope you guys'll like it!

This is one of the best looking k-nex differentials.

what does it even do?!?!

author
ahmetasc1 made it!(author)2015-03-01

it can not turn in the same direction on both sides?!?!

author
Sorunome made it!(author)2015-03-04

No, that is not what a differential is made for.

author

actualy this can run. I try another differential model (in this site) same like yours, but it is smaller than yours, it runs.

What does this actually do?

This is fantastic. I will use it in my knex emergency vehicle. Do you know of any smaller differentials?

author
Sorunome made it!(author)2014-06-30

Sorry, no :(

But glad you like it!

I do like it, and I just finished installing it into my semi truck but it isn't a perfect fit and I will have to perform some rather large modifications. Oh, well. If it comes to it, I can just invent my own. Oh, and thanks for your Rubik's cube tutorials. They really helped me out with the perplexing thing.

author
Sorunome made it!(author)2014-07-01

Haha, glad I could help out :)

Yeah you're back!!!!!!!!
Feels good to touch some knex after a year without, isn't it? :P
I'm already looking forward to your next ball machine, can't wait!

Sorunome made it!(author)2013-06-17

Ha, thanks guys!
It's just a bit hard to build without knex and I was in the US as an exchange student for a year - of cource without knex.
And it was first of all wierd to touch knex and I was thinking: did I seriousley manage to make big ball machines? HOW???????? lol

My main constraints are time and space...

Seriously, I'm not making a joke there XD

author
Sorunome made it!(author)2013-06-17

My problem is that i get too focused on ball machines and i hang down with the other things like school

author
jmiester made it!(author)2013-06-17

Hey, keep it up, and you could become the Sean Kenney of K'nex. =D

author
Sorunome made it!(author)2013-06-18

What's that? ^^

author
jmiester made it!(author)2013-06-18

Look him up. XD
He does amazing art with LEGO

author
Sorunome made it!(author)2013-06-18

wow, that is EPIC lego work O.O

author
jmiester made it!(author)2013-06-18

ikr? but the crucial thing is: you could be his equal for k'nex >=D

author

Haha, If I don't touch K'nex one week, I would be depressive.. XD

author
Leigo+Andre made it!(author)2013-08-03

Same here. I left California and went to Colorado for a year for school while my knex sat here collected dust. But I'm not leaving for a year again!

author
sandroknexmaster made it!(author)2013-08-04

Luckily :D

author
Sorunome made it!(author)2013-08-04

Ha, same here :P i will NEVER leave my knex again

ha, that one is pretty funny :D

author

I see you decided to post it, nice! But, one thing it's missing is the outer gear. I'm looking forward to seeing how you built the lift mechanism with this design. ;-)

author
Sorunome made it!(author)2013-06-19

Ha, the funny thing is that I don't need this thing anymore.
And the outer gear would be easy to add with a big grean gear (I have two of 'em)

author
Shadowman39 made it!(author)2013-06-19

Yeah, I have some of those gears as well.

author
Sorunome made it!(author)2013-06-19

I know >:D

author
MechanicalCreationMaster made it!(author)2013-06-17

Let me get this right...the differential simply reverses the direction of the rotation from one side to the other? Pretty nifty, lots of uses for that...

author
Sorunome made it!(author)2013-06-17

Ha, thanks, actually it is used in cars if you turn the box because if you drive in a curve and you turn the box the inner wheel can be slower than the outer wheel.
