Introduction: Knex Drink Dispencer

Picture of Knex Drink Dispencer
There's not much of these on the website. So I'd thought I'll make one. At first, I tried copying Adamsdead2's can dispencer, But couldn't seem to get it. I stopped, didn't destroy it, but made my own. So, without further ado, here it is, Bosco's knex dispencer. (Comes with a parts list)
Please Don't be harsh, this is my first instructable.

Step 1: Parts List.

Tmbo17932 (author)2009-05-21

SonicX 22 (author)2009-04-16

doggieyman (author)2009-04-29

pimmy65 (author)2009-04-04

you make some very funny sounds in the video ! but this instructable is not so bad.

bosco-FREAK(Knexlover) (author)2008-09-16

sorry guys, I'm currently on holidays, I'm not going to be back until October the 30th. see you soon!

timmy1234s (author)2008-08-31

how did you make the sniper?

zalpha314 (author)2008-07-15

sorry, I meant putting the whole thing together... You just leave us with the parts from the end of each step, and no step for putting it together. And your parts list is way off.

I think this guy was a one shot builder. He built it, added a few mods, and completely forgot about it.

If not please answer our questions.

Electroinnovation (author)2008-08-19

It is too dark. Could you please take brighter pictures next time. Other than that I love the instructable. Great Job!!!

Oblivitus (author)2008-08-03

This is good, but how did this become a featured item?

zalpha314 (author)2008-07-15

dude... i think you're missing a Giant step... Like showing us how to put the part together!! And your mods page is really messy. It's very confusing.

gowee007 (author)2008-06-15

yo this is cool i made it but it does not stay still could you weight it down and show us it so we can make it

You know that little box up the top? You could put a can in there or something or maybe a paper weight? It"s really up to you..

bosco-FREAK(Knexlover) (author)2008-06-17

maybe, and plz tell me if you want a tutorial to make a house of cards. Alot of people have said "a door would be good down the bottom" Maybe I might, I'll try soon and add some steps to "mods"

luck (author)2008-06-16

here is an idea. Why don't you put a latching door near the bottem of the soda shute for easier loading so that your soda's do not get shook up.

bosco-FREAK(Knexlover) (author)2008-03-16

thanks for comments. I can't really post a video. my camera doesn't have noise and its pretty crap (even though I do get some good pics). I've tried everything, but can't seem get it. I'll post some pics soon. By the way, are the instructions easy? Bosco.... P.S. That is a pic from the poo and wee song. lol.

get of the sight !!!!!!! and stop commenting such harsh things he's only new!!!!!!!

bosco-FREAK(Knexlover) (author)2008-06-01

Well, thats a good idea, but im not making with my knex at the moment, my personallity is if i start up on one thing, I dont give up on it for at least a month, (even though I have designed my own corckscrew canyon) Yea, im hooked into somthing else at the moment and if you really want to know, card house building, if u want, i can make a tutorial for cardhouse building, but when im in my knex, ill consider doing something like that. cheers, Bosco

The Jamalam (author)2008-05-30

you should try to make another dispenser which you can set to dispense different drinks by twisting something or something similar. Just a thought :)

reedz (author)2008-03-14

It's obvious how it works, but you would think you would show it with some cans in it...

reedz (author)reedz2008-04-04

Good job putting a video on, it helps a lot with your instructable.

shooby (author)2008-04-03

Hahah I walked to my kitchen, grabbed a soda,and came back 3 times while this video was playing. Not sure i see the point in even making this, as most people would know it's possible to do. Maybe if you made one that could load on its side, or have one side of the chute hinged so you could open it to load it. Right now you're fighting gravity, and still ending up with a shaken can of warm soda.

bosco-FREAK(Knexlover) (author)2008-03-31

yea i know, it is a bit of a pain, i dont want to drop the cans...(from my previous experiences) either that or you could shove your whole hand in, or just drop it, its your choice.......

Rob K (author)2008-03-31

It does despondence cans but it looks like a pain to load.

Gordon Freeman (author)2008-03-26

Not many eh Now there it 2 good job man I tried making one like that but my brain power failed.

bounty1012 (author)2008-03-25

i was gonna try to make a different version from the video on youtube... but this is fine =)

PocketSized (author)2008-03-14

You should make a video of it in action...

lach409 (author)PocketSized2008-03-19

video is on youtube but its crap

danymw (author)2008-03-18

hehee,nice idea! maybe i will try it but i don't drink can drink often. cool!

bosco-FREAK(Knexlover) (author)2008-03-18

Sorry people, but I have to update the instructions because it doesn't work that well. it will probably be done on the 20th March. This upgrade I made makes it work heaps well! (This time, there will be a video!) So, I segest that you don't make it until then. Until then, Bosco..

adamsdead (author)2008-03-15

Cool, I'll bet it can even hold more drinks then mine.
