All classic colored knex? damn

Wow, nice machine! How many pieces was there in it?
Nice! I like the white bottom! Is this ball machine made off all classic K'nex pieces?
THIS IS WONDERFUL! I like the lifts and the paths and the elements and the appearance and the....oh, for goodness sake, I like the whole thing! But probably the thing that got me most was the way you got Kariah's wheel lift to do double-duty, as a part of TWO networks. Very smart. ;)
I'll answer in his place :D (I know him):

Congratulations, you're my 100th commenter! :-D
It's so...thick! Great ball machine!

Great.That must have taken around 50,000 peices to build i bet.
Fabulous ! The video is equally well done.

This is the most amazing ball machine I've ever seen! Please, you should really make an instructable on those elements like the skinny grey connector path or especially because I want to know how, and maybe some others the white connector mesh at the bottom.
for the skinny gray path just make the super path with gray connectors.http://www.instructables.com/id/knex-ball-machine-Flashback-elements/step4/super-path/

thanks and I will make instructables when I have time I'm now busy with school but when I have time I will make an instructable for the elements ;)

Wow! That's a lot of pieces.

Thats awesome, you should call it "The Chuck Norris' gumball machine"
toeti (author)  monsterlego4 years ago
thanks, why should I call it "The Chuck Norris' gumball machine"?
Do you know who Chuck Norris is?
toeti (author)  monsterlego4 years ago
actually no ;)
Well he's a lot more known in America, try looking him up. :l
-1000000000000 internetz! Blasphemy!
Best built ball machine for its size. I've seen a couple slightly larger, but this is by far cooler cos it looks strong and neatly built. It doesn't have that cobbled together look, its nice.

toeti (author)  MegaMetal84 years ago
Thank you very very very much and to make it some little bit more awesome I'm just a 15 year old boy. now I'm thinking what if I'm older what am I going to build than? ^_^
WOW, Im making a ball machine now actually, I don't even have half that K'Nex so its only a simple chain lift but the 4 paths Im gonna try and make awesome.

If I build a fancy lift I never have enough to have more/better paths.
toeti (author)  MegaMetal84 years ago
a chain lift is also good there are many machines without a lift and if you build some ball machines you will see they all become better. Look at me nemesis isn't half so good as this one. You will see your next one becomes a lot better than your previous one I'm shure. :)

Wow, that is super-amazing. This is definitely the coolest thing I've ever seen made from KNex.

BTW, can the balls switch networks?
toeti (author)  jmiester4 years ago
yes on the white floar they can go to the quadruple arm lift and the stepper lift and the quadruple arm lift has 2 arms who goes to the left an 2 arms who goes to the right.

Wow! That is amazing. I like how dense it is. I've recently double the size of my knex and I still don't have that many pieces. Great job!
toeti (author)  KneXtreme4 years ago
yes but mine knex size is also doubled ;D

what do you do with these machines when they're done? Hospitals will pay big money for sculptures likes this. I've seen marble machines in childrens hospital waiting rooms. Sick kids (as well as adults) can watch these things for hours and not get bored. It's a wonderful way for them to loose themselves and takes their minds off their pain.

toeti (author)  dimtick4 years ago
thanks, when it's done I let it stand for a month or something and than I put it down and begin at a new better one ;)
dimtick toeti4 years ago
you shouldn't let this go to waste. people should get a chance to see and enjoy this first hand. hospitals pay big money for these....or more procisely donars pay big money to put these in hospitals with a big sign saying "donated by <>".

here's one in a dentists office. this one is metal while yours is Knex but i think yours is every bit as good as this.

here's a couple more. look at the kids watching it. they could sit there for hours.

something to think about.
toeti (author)  dimtick4 years ago
yeah thats truh and I would love to do that but now the practical thing how do I get this in the hospital I even dont get it out my room
This is unimaginably big, How the hell do you even begin to create this?
How much worth of KNEX is in that machine!!??? Awesome 5 stars, but I certainly won't be attempting this instructable.
wow u really like to use other peoples lifts

Grey connector path is really cool. Nice race path starter ;). A lot of influence from Kairah's tower... And same music as Shadowman from one of his machines. Too many lifts and not enough paths IMO. A lot of unique pathing though :)
toeti (author)  GrandeSwag4 years ago
Thanks I know that I know the music from somewhere but I didn't know from where but what meens IMO I'm from Belguim and I doesn't talk very good english

toeti (author)  VerendusVir4 years ago
Thanks man I just was very lucky I had 2 very good deals I have bought 2 times a lot of knex for a little bit money and yes I've eat and sleep I even was on a holiday ;p
