Introduction: Project George Bush-A Knex Ball Machine

This is my first ball machine ^^. Its not very good or exciting but i enjoyed making it. i had to use golf balls instead of knex balls since i don't have any. Since it was my first ball machine it's just 2 curves a chute into a basket into a sloped path to the lift....If your wondering why i named it "project george bush" its because i assumed my ball machine would sorta suck and not work very well,sorta like george bush.IMO

LOL Still laughing from the name. Great job for your first. My first was a ball rolling down a piece of track. I had to put it back every time. Then again I was 8 back then.

yea my next one will hopefully have a bit more to it..so far it has a lift to a basket itll fall onto a arm onto a curved path then onto some back and forth path to a vpath then onto a bouncer(?) into another basket.
