Knex Ball Machine Element: Turning Zig Zags

Introduction: Knex Ball Machine Element: Turning Zig Zags

About: Hey everyone. I'm Thibault Art and my biggest hobby is to build huge machines in K'nex. I like also to draw a lot and take care of my corn snake. On this page you will find K'nex ball machines, K'nex elements,…

Hey everyone,

I've designed a few other turning or tipping zig zags but this is definitely the best one so far. It works 99% of the time, it works very smooth and is easy to build. You can always watch the video to see it in action.

If there are any problems/ questions feel free to ask me in the commets below.

Thanks for watching/ building,

Thibault Art.

Yah!!! My machine will take longer because I got more k'nex for Christmas and tore down the machine for a better base and better supports. I kept most of the elements to put on my knew ball machine i'm building. It might take a while because I'm busy at the moment. When I finish the ball machine I will send you a link under this comment. I will give you credit because you gave me some of the elements. Thanks, KneXFAN200
