Introduction: Knex Coffee Machine

Picture of 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).

Bartboy (author)knex inventor2010-12-01

knex inventor (author)Bartboy2010-12-08

I built it and turned it into a tea machine using only k'nex and nothing else, supprisingly it worked!

Bartboy (author)knex inventor2010-12-08

hahahahaha, surprisingly? Can you post some pictures of it on my orangeboard???

knex inventor (author)Bartboy2010-12-09

Bartboy (author)knex inventor2010-12-09

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 :)

Nice! One of the few practical uses of knex I couldn't think of. Great work!

Sweet! this is the kind of Knex I'd like to see...

Bartboy (author)killerjackalope2008-12-14

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.........

killerjackalope (author)Bartboy2008-12-14

I'll grant you one... It's worth adding...

Bartboy (author)killerjackalope2008-12-14

Thanks! I think I did a very neat job, and it is completely customizable, (add more funnels for stronger coffee Etc.) So will you?

killerjackalope (author)Bartboy2008-12-15

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)killerjackalope2008-12-15

Does that awnser my question....?

killerjackalope (author)Bartboy2008-12-15

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)

The Jamalam (author)2008-12-13

mr bartboy, sir, i had an accident... lol

Bartboy (author)The Jamalam2008-12-13

LoL, but I meant if you pour coffee all over the knex....
