    You know what's kinda creepy? I actually have the Loopin' Lizard Ball Machine. STALKER!

    Lol, that is small. I've made one smaller and more pointless, though. XD

    How many pieces does this use?

    It uses 134 total parts, including the Chain Links and the Motor. I have listed the exact parts needed to build this Ball Machine Above in the description.

    speeking of moters did you order that moter or did you get it out of a set please write back and check out my stuff please and if you do please coment on them

    Yes, I got the motor from a set. It was a long time ago, so I don't remember the box colour it came in. Sorry. :(

    thats ok and did you check out my stuf

    Cool ^__^ I'll be sure to check it out.

    My smallest used around 40. :-P

    You've probably done something no one else would think to do here. Can you get it to crack eggs?

    "You've probably done something no one else would think to do here." Said by you. What do you mean? What have I done that no one else has done? Just curious. :)

    I meant that other people would always try for BIG machines, small can be good but isn't often done.


    there are a few more small ball machines on the site though, even smaller than this one

    hehe, nice, not the smallest though

    The one I made is smaller...

    A lot smaller.

    nice! 5*
