Introduction: Fort Kecil - a Knex Ball Machine

Here's my first ball machine. It was build and filmed back in June 2009, I just never made a video of it. There are 4 paths and a chain lift.

    Sorry but this is long gone. I can't remember how I made the supports either. Just hold the track in the position you want to have it, and then figure out how to make the supports. I know that I used four places to support the track.
