Introduction: Knex Ring Lift

Picture of Knex Ring Lift
Hello everyone,
Here's my knew and totally awsome ring lift. I want to give credits to Shadowman39, because he invented this lift in his ball machine Cataclysm. I just looked at the pics and build the ring frome that. The reest I invented on my one. Have fun!

EDIT: I made the lift run a lot smoother and made the exit working better. I'll post new instructions after Catastropha is finished!
EDIT 2: Here is the smoother and faster version of the ring lift!

Step 1: The Motor

You'll start with the motor, because it is in the lowest part of this lift.

Step 2: Turning Ring Mechamism

Now you'll make the mechamism that turns the ring.

Step 3: Ball Entrence

Step 5: Ring Part 2 of 2

Step 8: The Exit Track

Step 9: The Toppest Top

You almost did it! You just have to finish the top.

Step 10: You're Finished

You're finally finished! If you have any problems feel free to ask. You'll have to switch the motor to the right. Thanks for building!

Sorunome (author)The Cannoneer2011-12-28

Sorunome (author)Orangeprofessor2010-12-24

smilee (author)2010-10-31

Nice! I like it! Try and make the ring not studder. Other than that great job!

Tornado96 (author)smilee2010-11-05

HEy smilee I heard you really like these things:
:-) :-D :-( :-X XD :-P
>:-)>:-( ;-)

Am I right :-P

Sorunome (author)Tornado962010-11-05

Why the hell do you use noses??????????????ßßß

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2010-11-06

Why do you not use noses?

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392010-11-06


Sorunome (author)Tornado962010-11-06

1. They are faster to tip
2. They are (as me) frome the light side
3. The ones with noses are frome the dark side

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2010-11-07

!-) My cyclops smilee will vaporize you.

Sorunome (author)Tornado962010-11-07

You wish. :P (Did you notice the Patch I send you? :P)

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2010-11-07

I'm a few seconds away from rejecting it. >:-(

noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo :(

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2010-11-09

You have to admit that this is getting pretty stupid. Every time we comment you bring up noseless smilees. How about we just call a truce before there are broken hearts?

Shadowman39 (author)Tornado962010-11-09

Yeah, let's stop being racist against certain types of smileys. Soon smileys with equal signs as eyes will come up. =P

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392010-11-09

I don't mind them. The loner eyes take up the space of the nose. Speaking of racism we were doing that in school and akidwas talking about racism for his project andmy friend said, "You're being racist because you're only talking about white and black people andnot orange for the oompa loompas" I laughed for the rest of the class. :-D :-D

Sorunome (author)Tornado962010-11-11

:D Whitch Grade are you?

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2010-11-11

9th Why

Shadowman39 (author)Tornado962010-11-11

Freshman in high school?

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392010-11-11

LOL In Australia ther's no middle school. Primary (Elementary) school goes until year 6 and High school starts in year 7. I'm right in the middle. :-)

Shadowman39 (author)Tornado962010-11-12

Oh. I wish all the countries did it the same, lol.

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392010-11-12

Same here. IT would be awesome if everyone had the same things as Australia. :-D

Shadowman39 (author)Tornado962010-11-13

No, if everyone had the same things as America. :-)

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392010-11-13

Now there's going to be an America-Australia war! :-D

Sorunome (author)Tornado962010-11-13

DOn't forget Germany!!! :D

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2010-11-13

Germany already lost WW2 :-D

Sorunome (author)Tornado962010-11-13

Aw man! :(

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2010-11-13


Sorunome (author)Tornado962010-11-13


Sorunome (author)Shadowman392010-11-12

In germany you'll have to learn more in myx shool level (Gymnasium) than in high school.

Randomguy65 (author)Tornado962010-11-13


Tornado96 (author)Randomguy652010-11-13

Sorunome (author)Tornado962010-11-12

Just asking. I'm 14 and in 9th. And in start of 9th grade I was 13 :D For germany it's a bit young.

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2010-11-12
