Introduction: Small Knex Wheel Lift

About: You can find me over on Knexflux!
Hey there, this is the small knex wheel lift I used in my ball machine Dystopia underneath the white floor.

Step 1: The Base

First it's time to make the base

Step 2: Making Some Walls...

It's time to make some walls! :D
Pay closely attention on how the white rods are.

Step 3: Making Some More Wall Stuff...

Step 4: The Wheel and the Motor

You could use a other motor, you'd have to invent it then on your own.

Step 5: And Some More Walls...

Step 6: The Exit Track

Step 7: Did I Already Mention Walls?

Step 8: The Roof

Finally something different! The roof! :D
I show it you like this apart as it is this way possible to attach it all.

Step 9: Finishing It

You are almost done!
You just have to make sure that the exit floor is already somewhat tilted, what i show here is just that it works in this model, in a ball machine you have to make it tilt somehow different as otherwise the floor won't look good.

    Haha, thanks! But I think I won't make another ible of a hole ball should use your imagination :P

    i've played with knex a few years ago,i made some big ball machines back then,how big shall i make them now?

    Just do it how you like it :D

    haha, that was IMO pretty obvious.

    I don't have newer balls so i didn't try out...

    You didn't directly do that, you just talked me into doing something different that gave me the idea of doing that ^^

    What will next week's Ible be?

    yep! :D
    Guess how many pics :P

    not really....
    About 400 :P

    That's a lot! How many steps are there?

    I see you're still coming out with an Ible every week. :-P Nice lift, but you should have cleaned it up a bit (i.e. the open connectors). Lots of that stuff isn't even needed.
