Make your battery or mains or even wind up motor more than 6 times faster than it's normal speed!
Also check out mine, i dont mean to take peoples attention away from this great gearbox but i was wondering if anyone could encase mine for me<br>
sure I'll check it out
thanks, thinking of making an ible for you, might even show people how to put this into a car :)
Thanks, but don't worry about it: I think this slide-show is enough and it's not the most practical gear box either. Maybe you should make an improved, more compact one :)
Ok. Check out my gearbox. I made a pickup truck with my gearbox . should i post
Why did you post the same comment 3 times with slightly different wording lol? Anyway it looks kinda nice, but the body could do with a little beefing up, and the resolution of the images is quite low there. There are some great car instructables on this site to give you inspiration! I have a couple of tank designs on my instructables page too but I don't know how possible it is to modify those designs to allow for this gear box. These pictures look like a good first prototype though!
i dont now how that happened lol
oh yeah and btw; it hasnt got enough power. let me mod it and ill post when im done; oh yeah and what do you think of my gearbox
Oh yeah, I was going to put a comment but I forgot! It's nice, pretty compact and such. If I had to suggest an improvement then maybe the stand could be made a little bit less skeletal but overall it's pretty good
lol; didnt i write its for use without the stand
Hey Lowney, check my gearbox: https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-gearbox-2/<br><br>It has just been posted!<br><br>I know you problably won't like it because you can not see how it works, but I just wanted to show 'ya it (:<br><br>It's made for functional purposes.
I can't make it any way, I don't have the parts
you should make an ible on this
The design is so basic it doesn't really warrant a full instructable, however, if you're struggling just pause the video, and there are some photos in the comment section :)
can I use a different motor?
Yeah, this is compatible with all the motors, but they all have varying torque levels so you could have more/less levels than mine :)
put vegetable oil on it it makes it a ton more faster i did it with mine which is heavily modified with a huge motor attached to it and it went at least as fast as 7000 rpms<br>
awesome, if you put a video up on youtube or something then that would be cool. My youtube is &quot;Lowneification&quot; so you could send a link to my inbox there if you upload it :D<br>Check out my Youtube channel too, it's got some cool non-k'nex stuff there :P
what i mean by heavily modified is i added 2 levels and it goes insanely fast<br>
Cool, I guess your motor has more torque than mine, mine could never power a gearbox that big XD
here in New Mexico a normal day is 35 to 40.5 degrees Celsius.
you know what a 1973 lotus europa is? I have one
sweet i made it into a fan thanks for sharing!
awesome, got a picture? :D
here it is!
haha, that's brilliant! But if you were wondering how to get the lower fan without it hitting the floor, I used white feet on the bottom (easy to see in the video), just a heads up if you didn't know :)
yeah I kindof saw that but then was a little 2 lazy to do that. you can still see the grey rod spin but just not a little fan on the bottom!
yeah um i took the motor of buy ill put in back on. i knind of uses the fan blade from killer safe kracker. but yes ill get some pics
why dont videos work on this site?<br /> <br />
Big whoop, did this with big yellow gears and small blue ones years ago. =P<br />
It's a fan!, lol. Seriously though, it's nice, but I think that you could make this about half the size while still working the same.
Yeah this is a prototype: I'm making it smaller now. It's still a nice idea for windmills, cars (big ones) or even roller coasters and guns (like this onehttps://www.instructables.com/id/fullyauto-knex-gun/)<br/>
Also I quite like it like this as you can see the inner workings well. I think it looks quite nice when spinning, particularly with the two fans. This will be used on my V8 engine!
Yeah, and you really could use this as a fan for cooling off, try putting some panels on it. :)
Yeah but the blade doesn't really spin fast enough. Besides are you American? Because America has MUCH hotter weather than in Britain, so I don't really need a fan.
Yeah, I hear that europe is a pretty mild place, where I live the temperature ranges from as low as -30 degrees farenheit in winter to as hot as 90 degrees farenheit in summer. How cold/hot does it get in Britain?
for us 24 degrees (celcius) is considered VERY VERY hot, although we are having one of the hottest summers to date. Where in America do you live?
24 degrees celsius!? That's only 75 degrees farnheit! How cold does it get there? I live in the New England by the way.
Cold? That's boiling for us mate! I think we are hitting 32 by friday though
No, I didn't say that that was is cold, I asked how cold it gets where you live. I consider less than 40 degrees fareinheit to be cold, 40-60 is cool, 60-75 is warm, and 75 on is hot.
Probably for us it's boiling and for you it's luke warm. There (we have gone a bit off topic haven't we lol)
Yeah, what instructable is this again?, lol.
No idea :D
Ha! Down it Texas it gets to 104 degrees every summer. :)
Gasp i wish i lived there. Where I&nbsp;live in the summer the highest it gets in full sun is about 110 farienhiet but that was last year this year it was 102. The coolest it gets is 0 if i'm lucky. Last year the coolest it ever got was 15.
Shoop da Woop
Hehe, problem is I have a duke of Edinburgh camping trip on wednesday and thursday, and alton towers on tuesday, so I hope it is not too hot, just mild!
32C at the moment :)
