Previous Worlds Strongest Kne'x Crane, Lifts 13lbs!

Introduction: Previous Worlds Strongest Kne'x Crane, Lifts 13lbs!

This video shows my knex crane. The first half of the video is pictures of my design, then it has a 3 second clip from the botttom of the carriage, then it goes into the video of it actually lifting the 13 pounds.
If I get a lot of people asking for instructions, i will post some instructions.

    I have dismanteled it along time ago, rebuilt it, and re-dismantelled it.
    The second time that i made it, I looked at about 5 pictures of it, and it actually turned out better.
    I think that you could make it just by watching the video.

    I was worked about them slipping so I doubled them back to back. I am workin on making it stronger and I have only one gear per mesh so I made a little harness device to keep the gears straight.

    I hanged how the weight is attached changed the gear ratio and gave it Mir supports and it lifted 16 but now I have no idea how to measure more because I have no more weights that will fit on it
    Good luck

    13 lbs isn't much for a k'nex crane, there are ways to make a motor more efficient when paired up with gears and stuff. The structure is lacking in places, it could use more North/South support etc. Otherwise, nice try.

    It is very stable when it is alone and when it has a load on it. It is a lot of weight when you realize the it is lifting over 2 times its own weight. Let me se a crane that can lift more
