Introduction: Knex Ball Machine Smool III

Sorry about the confusion, I accendentally posteed this twice on youtube, and deleted the one wich i linked to instructables.... oops.
anyway, here it is, my third vid. my goal for this one was to compact it as much as possible, fitting as much as i could into a small space. hope you enjoy

Tornado96 (author)2010-10-12

WOW! I love ball machines that are very sturdy and don't shake and this is definitely one of them. I love the new elements that you designed. Could you take some clear pictures of them or make an instructable?

Once again great job. When did you start this?

smool (author)Tornado962010-10-13

lol ya i can pick this one up off the ground and move it and its fine

Tornado96 (author)smool2010-10-13

Yeeah. A lot of ball machines of this size can.

smool (author)Tornado962010-10-14

no like with one hand

Tornado96 (author)smool2010-10-14

Blaster and temple of demise can. My current project can but I won't be able to soon. *hint hint* ;-)

smool (author)Tornado962010-10-16

Tornado96 (author)smool2010-10-16

This will be my largest project ever. That's the only thing I'm saying. ;-)

~Aeronous~ (author)Tornado962010-10-16

I'm looking forward to it.

Tornado96 (author)~Aeronous~2010-10-17

You should. :-)

RNB (author)Tornado962010-11-01

I also do.

Tornado96 (author)RNB2010-11-01

How did we start talking about smool and then end up talking about something that no one's seen yet. Conversations can change so easily.

RNB (author)Tornado962010-11-04

Yes, they do. It's quite fun actually.

Tornado96 (author)RNB2010-11-04

LOL Once a friend of mine and myself were talking about a video game and we ended up talking about doing skateboard tricks off the empire state building. :-P

IT is so far. I hope I can maintain it.

RNB (author)Tornado962010-11-04

What's so far?

Tornado96 (author)RNB2010-11-04

As in so far Ican hold it with my pinky but soon I won't be able to.

Shadowman39 (author)Tornado962010-10-20

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392010-10-21

Oops. lol! I forgot those we're roman mumerals. :-P

Shadowman39 (author)Tornado962010-10-21

It should be numerals, not mumerals. :-P

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392010-10-21

Let's just say I like M's :-)

Tornado96 (author)Tornado962010-10-21

A Pm on my new project for anyone who finds out why I like M's :-)

Shadowman39 (author)Tornado962010-10-22

Tornado96 (author)Shadowman392010-10-22

knexinventer (author)2010-10-25

path 5

smool (author)knexinventer2010-10-26

i just used flixi rods

knexinventer (author)2010-10-23

ok but how do you make it turn

smool (author)knexinventer2010-10-24

oh wait wait a minute wich pathing are you talking about? just tell wich path number

knexinventer (author)2010-10-21

the pathing

smool (author)knexinventer2010-10-22

its just roller coaster pathing, excpet instead of putting a roller coaster on it i used as pathing for balls

knexinventer (author)2010-10-20

no the roller coaster pathing it would be helpful

smool (author)knexinventer2010-10-21

oh just the pathing itself? or the wall around the pathing?

MegaMetal8 (author)2010-10-17


knexinventer (author)2010-10-16

could you post how to make the outer turning path please

smool (author)knexinventer2010-10-16

the one after the red pathing that kinda grabs the ball and flips it around?

~Aeronous~ (author)2010-10-16

One of the best ball machines I've seen. I love the way you used gravity in some of the elements and special parts, and how compact it is (compared to others with as many paths). Great job 5*. I subbed you aswell.

smool (author)~Aeronous~2010-10-16

thanks :-)

Sorunome (author)2010-10-15

Cool! 5* awsome!

~KGB~ (author)2010-10-12
