Introduction: K'nex Ball Machine Maximum

About: I'm a 17 years old K'nex ball machine builder. I'm from Holland.

Hi fellow Knex' addicts,
I'm proud to present you "Maximum", a "around-the-room K'nex ball machine", the biggest ball machine that I have made so far. It has taken me 7 months to complete. Please feel free to ask questions about it.

"Maximum" is the entry for my K'nex Contest submission. I would appriciate a lot if you will vote for me!

    Thank you so much Sandro! Actually I think you deserved it...

    I don't see why I'd deserve it more. Anyways, good that you won, now it's a sure thing those parts will be used for more cool projects ;)

    In your ball machine are much more new elements and lifts... But thank you that you think I deserve it! That's absolutely a sure!

    Well done! I'm happy you won the grand prize :D

    Thank you so much! People like you make me build such things. :D

    Wow, this machine is massive, great job on completing it! Also, I think I've seen this style before somewhere... :P Plenty of new elements and stuff, makes me want to start building again too.
