My New Knex Ball Machine: A Work In Progress (Looking For Names) Answered

Update 1.2: Unfortunately, I will not be able to finish this ball machine due to lack of pieces. I may make a smaller ball machine later on, though, and post that. I also have many other ideas, so keep your eyes peeled for my next project!

Hello Instructables K'NEX Community! Here are the new photos of my new ball machine that I promised and was originally going to post on my Orangeboard. I am planning to order some more specific pieces and make a lift for the red-rod tower. Then I will add multiple elements to both tracks, add some more features, test and tweak it, and then post it. If you have any ideas for names, please comment below, and I may use it! Also, if you have any ideas about what else I should add to it, feel free to let me know in the comments. Thanks!

It is looking good, but i would wait till the machine is completely finished before naming it. That way you can maybe name it after something it looks like. just an idea though, mostly because I can't think of any names :P

I have no idea when it would be finished, probably sometime in the next month or so. I don't work on it that often, but I might start working on it more often soon.

Update 1.1: Element "Tire Stairs" added to Path 2. (unfinished)

Update 1.0: Green Flexi-Rod arches added to Path 1.

I'm always impressed by projects like this - do you have video of any parts running yet?

Thanks! No, at the moment, I do not have any videos, but I may later.
