    If you would add a video and a parts I would (probably) build this.

    Kudos to you! I would never figure out how this works... I don't work with k'nex...

    i haven't been on instructables for months but seeing all of the good comments you guyz post about my ball machines it is awesome.

    i made this and changed it so it run four balls (i used golf balls) at a time

    my brother and I built this because we did'nt have enough pieces for another ball machine and we loved it !

    this is the smallest ball machine i have ever seen

    ur really good at conserving parts for ball machines, which is great!

    Next try having two simple paths. Try buulding something new and innovative! :)

    Cool, but you should put more bracing on at that size of ball machine.
