How about a shot from the side ?
this is the ''BEST'' pointless ball machine ''EVER''.<br>
it has one element, witch is the track
just made it. I love it though it is useless.
took the words strait off of my keyboard
This thing was amazing, yet so simple.<br />
<em>Where do you get the red gears<strong>?</strong></em>
My motor dose not work, it is the one like yours, but older.
were do you get motors like that!!!!!!!!!!11?!?!?
In the old sets, when they came out.<br />
on this the speed of the motor is critical to making it work(less speed = less kick to the ball making it launch forward). try changing the batteries in it.<br/>
okay, but I did have to rewire and re solder it, as the wires broke, so ill try that
can u make this with only four big gears? i dont have 6.
You should try taking out the two outside(the ones in between the top and bottom) gears. I haven't made it myself, but it looks like it would still work. (P.S. you would also have to take out some of the chainlinks)
hey, i tried to make this and it just doesn't have enough information.
you call <em>THIS<strong>pointless?!?</strong></em><br/>
you have not even <em>heard</em> of POINTLESS until you have seen my parent's efforts to clean my room!<br/>
haha ditto :P
seriously: it makes the average landfill look clean.
well i picked mine up so i could play with knex :D
don't worry; my floor is juuusssttt clean enough to use as a workspace.
LOL @ 2 things 1. your name-"alex Jolly"???? 2. that is the worlds most silly ball machine ever
What's wrong with my name?
nothing, just sounds funny. do you live in the US?
I used to.
would this knex set have enough connectors?<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://knex.com/Thrill_Rides/motorized-madness-ball-machine.php">http://knex.com/Thrill_Rides/motorized-madness-ball-machine.php</a><br/>
im not sure about connectors but it only has 4 gears. <sup>_</sup><br/>
To build this? If yes, then probably.
not that, i mean a knex gun
No, it has lots of blue connectors but not enough other kinds. I recommend using eBay.
I just finally finished my own "mini ball machine." (my first ball machine 2!). It is actually slightly shorter than yours. Yours is 9 to 91/2 inches tall, mine is about 8 1/2" .It's almost exactly the same length but it has a larger width. ( I did not use micro-knex). Question: I'm new to instructables and have never posted one. Do I have to actually post the instructions or can I just put up a video, like you did for Project S?
it works though i just built it
it is not <em><strong>pointless its mindless </strong></em>lol<em><strong></strong></em><br/>
very cool!!
5 stars! BTW I modified it so it has a longer track, but still doesn't take many pieces. I can put a picture up if you want.
Thanks, and I would love to see a picture.
This is it
I'll post if wanted.
That will work, expect it in at least 3 days.
Yes, yay. It may be longer i don't want to mae instructions now.
well that's good; it looks pretty cool
I broke it to make ( do you know the hand held cannon? looks like a crossbow. ) a smaller version of the hand held cannon.
I remember that one
That is a Horrible horrible picture.
I may not post it i am making a sniper rifle and may need the parts.
5 stars! it's good for people who don't have enough pieces to build big ones (not me! i have enough pieces) :D
ohh... in need more rods lol
