slithien (author)LudwigKnex2011-03-10

LudwigKnex (author)2011-03-08

Okay, Now that youve built the tumbler,... how do you figure out the code?

KnexFreak360 (author)2011-02-17

simple yet effective but i wouldnt keep my money in it. 5*

shieldsam (author)2010-12-12

dude this sucks, can u post some pics of the white rods that stick out of the bits o the grey rod with the wheel? untill then, 0.5*

slithien (author)shieldsam2010-12-12

If you mean the white rods that stick out of the squares that spin, then place them where you want on the white connecter. Your code will be depend on where you place them. If this doesnt help then comment me back. I wont upload more photos because my laptop got taken away from me and everyone else managed to build it fine.

superbestknex (author)slithien2011-01-13

what is the combo two open it

slithien (author)superbestknex2011-01-14

The code depends on where you place the white rods on the square things.

superbestknex (author)slithien2011-01-28

how long did it take you to load

xXFor_The_WinXx (author)2011-01-10

What will happen if i spin it randomly :P will it still click into place ??

what is the combo

slithien (author)xXFor_The_WinXx2011-01-10

No, if you spin it randomly, when you push the button it will be blocked by the sguare things

salomon1996 (author)2010-11-19

slithien (author)salomon19962010-11-20

Umm... Do you mean the big ball factory if so i have that but i also have about 11 other boxes. And i got them all of ebay!!!

salomon1996 (author)slithien2010-11-20

lilnorm123 (author)2010-09-28

this is really cool but... who needs a safe to keep blue rods safe? =)

slithien (author)lilnorm1232010-09-29

It can store many things. Not just blue rods

lilnorm123 (author)slithien2010-11-14


slimshaddy (author)2010-11-03

I put a combination on it so you don't have to look at the top

slithien (author)slimshaddy2010-11-03

I did have one of them but the paper kept ripping and getting creased so i took it of

slimshaddy (author)2010-11-03

make box bigger

slithien (author)slimshaddy2010-11-03

But its box can fit lots of stuff so doesnt realy need to be made bigger.

slimshaddy (author)2010-11-02

how do you make the box area bigger?

slithien (author)slimshaddy2010-11-02

So you can store more stuff
