Introduction: Upcoming Knex Ball Machine

About: I make knex ball machines sometimes. I also enjoy video games, programming (iOS), music.

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.

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

    Looking sweat so far :)

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

    Thank you. It's ok, I've already done it so... Check out my new ball machine:


    That's a cool name, maybe I'll use it.
