Skill Shot Pinball (Knex Pinball Machine)

Knex pinball machine I made in early 2012.  An expansion of the Knex Electronic Arcade set. 4 paths, one network.

Step 1: Attaching the pinball machine to the table

The first picture is for the middle of the back legs.  The next two are for the back corners, and the final two are for the front legs.

Step 2: Dual Track Connector Path

A new kind of path I developed during construction.  Just as smooth as gold connector path, and almost as versatile, a good substitute for those without many gold connectors (like me!).  Turns and drops are easy, but sometimes attaching it can be a challenge.  Additional flexi-rods can be attached to the bottom of the connectors to add additional support.
Fantastic! A pinball-ball machine. Great job!

That's incredible! It's very cool to see that it's based on an existing knex set.
