K'nex Mini Connector Slinger




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.

    Meh, its ok, nothing new.

    Oh, I know it's not. It was never anything special. But it's fun to shoot from the top of our staircase, and it was my first 'ible so that was the main reason I posted instructions.

    ok, look at my new ball machine.


    I looked at it and it is awesome! Hoping to see more…and the video for it.

    video coming soon.
