Introduction: K'nex Whisk

Have you ever had one of those moments when you have been whisking something for ages by hand and you can't get the smooth mixture you want. Who am I kidding, we've all had them! Well then, this instructable is for you! With my hard efforts, I have created the Super Fast Ultimate Kitchen K'nex Whisk. If you do manage to make it post a picture and I will add it to the last step. Also I will hopefully be posting my BIGGER project tomorrow!

So, get your K'nex and lets get mixing (I know awful pun :P)

This is one of my entrys for the Rods and Connectors contest so I would appreciate a vote Jamie Oliver!

Step 1: Parts List

Firstly, lets gather the following:

Note - the pieces are labelled in there classic K'nex parts

RODS

Flexi green rod (seen as black in the picture) - 4
Red - 8
White - 59
Green - 12

CONNECTORS

Red 3 way - 28
Purple 3D - 24
Grey 1 way - 37
White 8 way - 9

OTHER

Tan clip - 7
Blue Spacer - 10
Silver Spacer - 10
Small Blue Cog - 3
Red Cog - 3

Step 2: The Main Structure and the First Axle

In this step you will make the main part of the whisk and the very first axle.

Pictures
1) Make this
2) Another view
3) Attach the motor to it as shown
4) Another view
5) Make this (the main part)
6) Another view
7) Another view - make sure you have those green rods on the end
8) Attach the axle with the motor in as shown to the main part ( you will have to take the motor out to get the white connector through and then put the motor back on with and hoop the other white connector through)
9) Another view (make sure you have the grey clip on the end!)

Step 3: The Second Axle

In this step, you will make and attach the second axle. It is slightly different to the first so don't get muddled. It is a little easier than the last but be sure to pay attention

1) Begin by making this
2) Another view
3) Attach as shown to the other bit you made in the last step
4) Another view of what you should have
5) Another view - add the grey clip as shown

Step 3 complete, lets move on!

Step 4: The Third Axle

In this step, you will make the third axle, again its not the same as the others so lets get on with it! ;)

Pictures
1) Start by making this
2) Another view
3) And another view
4) Attach as shown - make sure it goes all the way
5) Another view
6) And another view
7) A final view - make sure that the grey clips on the end as shown

Step 5: The Whisk

Yes! Finally you get to make what this instuctable is all about, the whisk itself! This should be fairly easy.

Pictures
1) Make this
2) Another view
3) Another view - a close up of the whisk
4) Another view - make sure the tan clip is in place. Otherwise it won't move (sorry its blurry!)
5) Another view - make sure the grey clip is in
6) Final view

Step 6: Assembly

Just attach as shown

Pictures
1) Attach
2) Another view
3) Another view
4) Final view of what you should have

Step 7: The Handle

In this step you will be making the handle, a bit harder but I have faith in you if you have come this far! =D

Pictures
1) Make this
2) Another view
3) Another view - make sure the silver spacers are in
4) Another view
5) Another view - same with blue spacers
6) Make this
7) Another view
8) Attach as shown
9) Another view

oooo getting closer to the end. Onwards and Upwards!

Step 8: Assembly

Attach as shown, your nearly there =D!

Pictures
4) Attach as shown in picture - make sure you attach it the right way (it might be a bit of a squeeze, getting the motor through it.
4) Another view - make sure the bottom is connected
4) Another view
4) And a final view

Step 9: Your Done

Hurray for you, you have made my Ultimate Kitchen K'nex Whisk. Go easy on the eggs and things may get sticky and enjoy :P. I hope you are happy with it, if so I would appreciate a vote for the contest! Also be sure to check out my other posts =D Feel free to comment!

Nice! I will try this with a green motor.

author

Now that I think about it, a green motor would probably not be powerful enough. I'll try to modify it to use a Tethered Power Pack Motor instead.

author
hunter999 (author)JonnyBGood2013-07-16

Well I have tried whisking milk and by the time I finished whisking, I was wearing half of it XD so I would advise you put a lid over it while whisking! That's what I did the second attempt at whisking

No, the smiley faces don't take up a whole paragraph like on my orangeboard, only one line

author

Yes, according to me, you do indeed have the power to predict these things. If memory serves me correctly, you haven't had one wrong prediction yet. :3

author

Lol, all hail Nerfrock!

author
nerfrocketeer (author)hunter9992013-07-16

author
hunter999 (author)nerfrocketeer2013-07-16

author
nerfrocketeer (author)hunter9992013-07-16

author
nerfrocketeer (author)2013-07-13

author
nerfrocketeer (author)hunter9992013-07-16

;)

author
nerfrocketeer (author)hunter9992013-07-13

Ok! I would build this sometime, but unfortunately I don't have any motors or gears... :(

author
hunter999 (author)nerfrocketeer2013-07-13

Really? oh ummm then I guess theres no solution :-(, Still you could buy gears like cheap off Ebay...

author
nerfrocketeer (author)hunter9992013-07-13

I guess... :/

author
hunter999 (author)nerfrocketeer2013-07-14

As for the motor I could maybe figure out a hand crank as a alternative...

author
nerfrocketeer (author)hunter9992013-07-14

Ok :)

author
DarkOwlProductions (author)2013-07-15

Hunter! Awesome; you got featured. I'm so happy for you! I voted.

author

Thanks mate for voting, I seriously appreciate it :D

author

If you deserve a vote, you get a vote, and this is definitely vote-worthy. You're welcome. :3

author
dickheijboer (author)2013-07-13

Nice, but I don't have that motor...

author
hunter999 (author)dickheijboer2013-07-13

Ahhh but you can make it with a standard one green one like:
http://www.knexusergroup.org.uk/acatalog/K22722.jpg

with a few modifications and tweeks but it won't go as fast. I can redo the ible with that type of motor or the standard one with red battery pack for you if you want...

author
dickheijboer (author)hunter9992013-07-14

Yes, thanks but I never build something else as ball machines.. :)
I love ball machines. The mine is finished but I only have to make a video..

author
hunter999 (author)dickheijboer2013-07-15

Awesome, I'm looking forward to it :)

author
hunter999 (author)2013-07-15

Yep, sure is! Man, shoulda posted this on pancake day :P
