Introduction: Knex Ball Machine Lift: Endless Arm Lift

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,

Here are instructions for the final lift that was featured in my knex ball machine ECLIPSE.

If you're looking fore a very reliable lift that you can make as long as you want, this is the lift you need! It works 99,9% of the time when instructions are carefully followed. No rare or special pieces are needed for this lift and it's really easy to build.

I just want to say, if you want to make this lift a lot longer, I recommend you to install a second 12V motor on top of the lift.

The only disadvantage on this lift is the dispenser. The dispenser is only capable of handling 3 knex balls at a time. If there are 4 or more knex balls waiting to be dispensed, it could cause damage to the lift.

If there are any complains, problems or questions, feel free to tell me in the comments below or pm me.

Thanks for watching/ building.

Thibault Art.
