Introduction: K'nex Mini Connector Slinger
This is something my friend and I designed and made in five minutes. With a little tampering, it turned out to be pretty cool. And as my first full instructable, I would like to present the K'nex Mini Connector Slinger. Sorry, no video, if you want to see it in action, build it. It doesn't take long.
Update: I got the video for the ball machine!
Step 1: The Base
This is very easy to build.
Step 2: The Slinger
This is the part that holds and fires the connector.
Step 3: The Rubber Band Holder
This part holds the rubber band for the slinger.
Step 4: Attaching the Rubber Band
The best kind of rubber band is a #64 elastic. These can be bought at a lot of places.
Step 5: Three Ways to Fire
There are 3 ways to fire the slinger, they will be listed in the next 3 steps.
Step 6: Firing: Under
This is the way I fire it most often.
Step 7: Firing: Over
This is a lot like the previous method and you can probably guess the difference.
Step 8: Firing: Kicking
This is a firing method but it isn't recommended, because it sucks .
Step 9: Tips for Firing
Angle the machine to fire further.
Fire it from high places to go much further.
Thank you for building my machine.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
