Make it as tall as you want. This version is perfect for any size rooms with an average 8ft celling. Make as tall as you want. To assemble taller towers break it about 4ft up and then lift up the part(only if it is over 10ft tall)and reconnect it. Check out my homemade snow machine!

Step 1: The Base

This is the bottom of the tower that keeps it from falling over in 5mph wind.

Step 4: Antenna

This is unnecessary but makes it look more realistic.

I made one thats 12 feet tall but it almost fell down. Also put x bracing in the middle on the bottom.
thanks for ur design it inspired me to build my knex tower cannon

you can play jenga and keep taking out random pieces untill it falls, lol that would take time and it would be fun

omg... r u kiddin me???
how hard is it to build a knex tower???
srry if i think worng...
Electroinnovation (author)  gagaga3 years ago
complicated...i have actually discovered a much better design now but it actually is more complex than meets the eye.
Might gather up my friends and make a 20+ tall tower with a seat and k'nex minigun mount, but that'd need to be HUGE and insanely strong...... that'd require a huge base, though...
Electroinnovation (author)  mettaurlover4 years ago
Yeah it would u may just want to use wood and and a knex minigun. Knex isn't really meant to hold weight

maybe if you took out some internals you add a elevator lift.

Then you would have a makeshift ball machine!

At least a part of it.

You should see what I made! =) I will post it later!<br/>
what's the point of it
Electroinnovation (author)  dutchwarlord5 years ago
To look at and knock down.
If you put more tower internals, it'll be easy to shoot ;D
looks silmar to my crane's stand

It may come in handy if i ever do build a ball machine (maybe never).
