Knex Heavy Cannon v5 - Handheld (TGKT entery)

This is going to be by entry for the TGKT. It is alike my other cannons in many ways. A few things to point out... Fires same ammo as the Micro No wheels or stand, a handle on top makes it handheld True trigger Very Piece efficient Fires about 70 feet Easy to load Cool looking (I guess thats subjective, so whatever) Thats it! I hope you like it. EDIT: Posted!

Knex Ball machine Twister - TGKTR3 Entry - Now with video!

Wohoo!I finally finished my ball machine. Its by far my biggest build, eating thousands of pieces and many hours. I'm happy with the result though. It features a few larger elements, such as the "Yin Yang" as seen on KI, a switching element made of ball switchers, a large spiral bowl, a big arm dropper and a 2 stage element. All together it comes to over 90 feet of track!The other main part of this ball machine is the lift mechanism, called "switchers" (I think...)They are really cool. One of the drawbacks is that they require a fair bit of energy to work, so I had to gear my motors down t have enough torque. So its a bit slow, but I think its well worth it.But enough of my biased intro, have a look for yourself!Oh yeah, and thanks to The knex weasel, darth trainman, shadowman39, I used their ideas in this ball machine. Also thanks to Gortess, whom I borrowed a few pieces from.Other cool facts...Took a month and a bit to buildTook 2 hours to take apartUses 7000 piecesHas over 90 feet of track!Enjoy!The video has arrived! Sorry for the wait. Hope you enjoy it.Here's the direct link. I had to repost the video on a different account, so your comments/ratings are gone now, sorry. For anyone interested, there was 400 views when I took it down.

Dropping out of TGKTR3

As the title suggest, I am dropping out of the tournament. There are several reasons why.1. People don't like the founder of the contest being in it.2. I want to judge this last round personally so people probably won't like me judging my own entry.3. I already started taking apart my unfinished entry.For all those wondering, this was going to be my entry:

A new Knex competition (And no, this is not a thread to advertise a TGKT spin-off!)

I am just going to say before I start that this is not a flame thread, and I just want to see how everyone feels about this. I do not want any immaturity or namecalling here. Any comments, from anyone, that include namecalling will be flagged.Now, a while ago Radioactive started a competition for those who were not included in the 'Grand Knex Snob Expert Contest' (Is that right, Radio?) What I am suggesting is that we run a smaller competition for those that have not earned the title of Knexpert (a term which I feel is used too loosely these days). It can run after the TGKT, and can be run by a party that would not wish to participate. People who were in the TGKT would not be able to enter, to give the less experienced a chance.
