    cool ive made knex sping out of only knex

    sorry,but it did not work can you send me help emails at

    I don't know why it didn't work. Either post a picture of yours, write what is wrong, or reread the directions.

    Cool, this could save many walls from being dented =D.

    2 late 4 me XD

    cool! i'm goint to use this in two projects: my tank gun for a recoil absorber, and two for the legs of the walker i'm going to mount it on.

    Thank you. I'm glad I inspired you to use my designs.

    The latest fad seems to be suspension? Anyways, well written Instructable- clear pictures, good spelling. The build is a bit too simple though.

    or you could simply buy one lol
