Introduction: Knex Ball Machine Flashback Elements

hi this is an instructable for how to build some cool elementsfrom flashback.
i hope it's clear enough!
sorry for bad english, i'm from holland.

Step 1: Flipper

this is another design, but it works as good as trainman's one.
it's not invented by me, but by kagekumo, but i never saw an instructable of it.

Step 2: Corkscrew

it was hard to make this corkscrew work, but i did it!
it might be hard to make it work. just modify it a little.
make sure that you drop start is three red rods above the begin.

Step 3: Simple Stairs

i made stairs!
not hard, good working

Step 4: Super Path

well, it needs lots of orange connectors, but it works really good and it can be bended in all directions and it sounds nice.
this is a solution for when you don't know how to connect awsome elements.

Step 5: Ferris Wheel

this is a good working ferris wheel.

Step 6: Horizontal Ball Arm

i made this from the pieces i had left

Step 7: Vertical Ball Arm

Step 8: Clickers

ball rolls down and it makes a nice sound.

Step 9: Gap Element

the ball rolls and falls and rolls again........

Step 10: Rolling on Rods

i know it is a hard element, so make sure you support it very good.

Step 11: Obstacle Path

this works best when you don't make it too steep.

Step 12: Moving Steps

took me ten minutes to create

Step 13: Flipping Ball Arm

takes less knex and looks good

Step 14: Maze

the ball chooses the way it goes.
you can make it wider or higher and it can be used diagonally
not my idea

Step 15: Path Slower

use this for slowing a ball on orange slide.

Step 16: Basket

used for flying balls

Step 17: Chair Looking Ball Holder P1

Step 18: Chair Looking Ball Holder P2

Step 19: End

succes on your own ball tower!
