Introduction: Upcoming Knex Ball Machine

Picture of Upcoming Knex Ball Machine

Hello, and welcome to my first instructable.

Today I'm showcasing my upcoming ball machine. I don't currently have a name for it, maybe you guys can help me out with that. Anyways, the machine will feature one lift, the Double Chain Elevator Lift by dickheijboer. I have just begun on the first of 16 planned tracks, divided by two of Sorunome's infinity switches. (Each one dividing into 8 paths) Any ideas for the machine are welcome, and thanks for reading.

Looks really nice so far! And wow 16 paths...that's alot! :-)

Haha yeah. I'm planning on having many paths in order to make up for the lack of multiple lifts.

Of course you can add a picture. Do you want me to get a better picture of just the lift?
