Knex Coffee machine

In the chatroom today, there was a lot of stress. So the conversation drifted towards coffee! Monk and Dj radio thought that I should try making a knex coffee maker, and here it is!
you can probably build it from the pics...

The hot water will NOT melt/damage the knex! This is 100%safe! (unless you have a little accident).

Enjoy!

Does it work?
Bartboy (author)  knex inventor3 years ago
Of course!
I built it and turned it into a tea machine using only k'nex and nothing else, supprisingly it worked!
Bartboy (author)  knex inventor3 years ago
hahahahaha, surprisingly? Can you post some pictures of it on my orangeboard???

Bartboy (author)  knex inventor3 years ago
Sweet! It's sort of sad how so much of the k'nex community here has died... But it's great that people still make things :)

You remember your coffee instructable, well you forgot about drip coffee, witch is the most conventional coffee available ( Camping, power outages etc. etc.) So maybe.........
I'll grant you one... It's worth adding...
Bartboy (author)  killerjackalope5 years ago
Thanks! I think I did a very neat job, and it is completely customizable, (add more funnels for stronger coffee Etc.) So will you?
It's a great example because it actually shows what's going on in an open frame, it's hard to get a good photo showing the whole thing if it's just balanced on a cup... Plus it might help drum up some more non gun Knex stuff, which would be nice to see...
Bartboy (author)  killerjackalope5 years ago
Does that awnser my question....?
I'm saying yes... I'll get round to that later on, I'm halfway through building a site, it'll be up either tonight or tomorrow morning (the coffee bit that is I'm aiming to have a site I started today done tonight)
