you might have seen instructables just like this one before, but they don't seem all that sturdy.
I have made a knex flail that is relatively strong, and easy to make

Step 1: What You'll Need

this is what you need

(the chain can be found in the screamin' serpent or corkscrew canyon sets)

Not pictured: knife, paper, duct tape (optional)

Step 2: The Handle

start adding the red rods onto the 2 black connectors

Step 3: WAIT!

Before you add the last rod, put the brown peice on the blue rod, string it through one of the black connectors, add a white semicircle, then add the last rod
(use the pictures for help)

Step 4: Chain

add chain
you can make it as short or as long as you want

Step 5: Ball

make a paper ball and cover it in tape
cut a hole in it with the knife, and stick a yellow rod with a semi circle into it and tape it on

Step 6: Connecting Ball to Chain

get a piece of chain and cut the ends off
add it to the semi circle on the ball and connect the chain to it

Step 7: DONE!

you are now done with the knex flail
to customise it, you can add duct tape to give it a chrome-like finish or add spikes!
I'm not sure I understand the point of all these knex things? What do they do? Can you actually use them as a weapon, or impact bombs, or whatever they might be? Sorry if I'm being dumb, but aren't they just like legos: a kid's toy???
Pfft! Pffftfffftffftftftftffftftftttttt!!! &quot;I reject your reality and substitute my own.&quot; (Adam Savage) Lmao.... What are we talking about again?... Ahh yesssssss... im sure that you can sharpen pisces of metal and fire them with guns/bows/crossbows to a pretty good extent (maybe even to the point of lethality?). but to sum it up in a (very large) clamshell, <strong>IT'S FUN!!! </strong> and i strongly reject legos being a kids toy, my mom plays with them and she's what? 43 years old. of course i'm only 12 but then again i play dungeons &amp; dragons, read 700+ page books and play with FIRE!<br/><br/>Toodles,<br/> The Lord<br/>
Do u watch mythbusters Lord Of Mystra? I Do, and im Only 9 !!!!
fire is fun enough said
same here im like 12 i play with ipod,bike,phone,computer too busy to be waving around a 4 year olds flail but it does look like that thing could do some dammage
well... to make stuff like this!<br/><br/><a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/EW61UMLIJBEWZMJVQU/">https://www.instructables.com/id/EW61UMLIJBEWZMJVQU/</a> <br/><br/><a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/ER8RQLJBPAEZTBC0B9/">https://www.instructables.com/id/ER8RQLJBPAEZTBC0B9/</a><br/>
well, that is what most people do with them, but some times people make useful things out of them, like a robot to get people beers or soda.
they are a building toy
stop having loads of instructibles of the same thing all on one page it annoying!
dont use a paper ball!, it's flimsy and wont hurt. Use a knex ball with white rods sticking out of it.
cool. hey this is my knex cat claw nunchuck thing should i post as an instructable?
instead of a paper ball on mine, I use about 3 or 4 giant wheels stuck together
O.o' did we travel back in time? where did all the guns go....
i was thinkin the same thing
i also was thinking the same or maybe its med evil weapon week exclusively to instructable :) or not
I don't know, it could be, maybe to counter discovery's "shark week"
i said it is my <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/group/">knexknights group</a>lol<br/>
<a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/group/knexknights">knex knights</a>its because of my group lol <br/>
But I thought KNEX &quot;things&quot; had to be <strong>ALL</strong> KNEX.<br/>
the blue rod spins around, thus making it able to spin 360 degrees
