I just discovered that the K-nex like building set I have isn't K-nex! The pieces I have are larger and are made of a softer material. They work well for children in the 2-5 yo range. Would anyone know what these pieces are called? The 1000 pieces of K-nex are going to have to wait a few years..... Thank you in advance.

Well, I am pretty tight on time at the moment, but the video should explain things pretty well until I can do so here. here will also be many more pictures of the K-3 and Kinetic Shotgun, but I just need some time for those too. As for the K-4: Everything worked the way it was designed to work, but certain mechanisms (the trigger and the BTS) required a lot of force to function, thus reducing the amount of tension that would be even remotely practical to use on the bow. It was a good attempt and I have learned a lot from it; things that I will take with me as I move on to bigger and better guns. Here's a video for now, and I will explain everything in depth as soon as I can.

Hey guys and recently I came in the nine runners up the K'nex toys and rods connectors contest 2014 and I have received my prize a week ago but the t-shirt that came with the K'nex set was to small for me and it wasn't the colour I thought it would be so I'am giving it away to the person that asks for it will get it. The t-shirt is purple and in size medium.

Question by Icool | last reply
Hello. I have a simple task to achieve, I guess, but I'm stuck. I'm using the setup from the attached image. All I need to do is to read the Speed of the vehicle using data from the obd2 k-line pin, and then to send a command to blink the brake lights when a certain decrease in speed is detected (e.g. more than 2km/h/s). I can not initialize the k-line and I am not able to red anything on the serial monitor on arduino :(. After I manage to read the raw data I am planing to figure out what's the code for turning on the brake lights by just simply pressing the brake pedal. The vehicle is an 2004 BMW E60, but I guess this is not an issue. Question... Are the TX/RX pins connected as it shod on the arduino board? Thank you. Ant help would be appreciated. I need this for a school project and a have a deadline :(((

Ok, I tried to make the Buster Sword out of Knex. It looks like a skinnier version of it, and the handle is crappy, but it looks kinda like the real thing. Just don't swing it. I will post pics later when I find my camera. But, how about some of you Final Fantasy 7 fans out the join a new group all about FF7 Knex things? It's called Knex Final Fantasy 7 Remember, ONLY Final Fantasy 7 things will be allowed to be posted in this group.

Question by Knave125 | last reply
I'm new at instructables and I have been trying to figure out a good k'nex instructable. I noticed that most of the k'nex instructables are guns. I have posted a k'nex rubberband gun, but I started thinking about posting a k'nex blow gun. Is this a good idea?

Hey, ages ago i made a k'nex shotgun but took it apart, does anyone know if the instructable was removed, or if they know which one im on about could they post a link? all i can remember was that it had a sort of magazene at the end, was fired using a firing pin mechanism, and fired 2 blue rods at a time thanks.

Does anyone else think that the instructables team should make a new tab for all the K'nex ibles?? i was just wondering this. I think it would be awesome to have a K'nex Catagory, it would be filled almost instantly. If any other Members/Pros feel this way please tell. Please also think about it Instructables!

Hi everybody! (Hi Dr. Nick!) Ok, I did it. I made a group SOLELY for instructables on how to make Halo weapons out of K'Nex. Any one who likes Halo or just wants to see what the weapons would look like made of K'Nex are welcome to join.

I'm subscribed to the Forum RSS Feed but I hate getting K'NEX gun topics all the time. And I can't just put "-k'nex" in the search box and subscribe to that because a lot of them just say gun and not k'nex at all, even though they are k'nex gun topics. How would I exclude k'nex topics in a search then?

Designing an Uzi. I did, and it was jammy, bulky and ugly. Here are a couple of pics. The main problem with an Uzi is the magazine is the handle, and u have to have the trigger before the handle. I ended up making one, using a small flexi rod, but it is weak and it wasn't autocock. The magazine was good, but it had a really flimsy connection. Would anyone else try and make an Uzi??? (I'll add more pictures real soon)

What would you guys think of a working K'nex revolver replica? I mean like a 6-shooter?With a chamber and everything? I'm still trying to find something to do for my first Instructable but I don't want it to have been done before. So far as I know there isn't one. There are a couple of revolvers but they are not based on any real guns. Or I am just a weird-o and have never seen an 8-shooter.

I will give a patch to the person who can think of the best name for this tower! After 17 months it is almost complete! It stands 6' 10" and has 8 tracks. This is my first ball tower,but my brother and I built a Ferris wheel that was about 8' 6" tall. You can suggest as many names as you want. The contest ends on June 11 at 12:00 P.M. CST. Thanks!!!

Meh, I was on a building spree and kept morphing a gun until I eventually came to this. After I was all done, I finally realized that I pretty much wasted my time because I accomplished nothing. Meh, it's a cool and different gun nonetheless, but it's nothing to get hyped over either. I was bored so I made a video for it anyways seeing how I haven't done that in a while. Enjoy. &amp;lt;br&amp;gt;

Hi there I'm in the process of developing a K'nex new ball machine lift, but the current motor I am using (the TT one 2 speed- the one below) does not have enough torque to drive the axle. I was wondering which motor is best suitable and has a larger amount of torque. I was thinking the 12V one with the adapter, but since I don't own one yet, I cannot test one. So my question is which motor has the most torque?

Question by David97 | last reply
I've observed that the majority of people think range (and reliability though this seems to be taken way too seriously) wins wars outdoors. So what would you choose for a weapon if it were indoors with a few walls and corners, tables and other cover, and probably the largest room being no larger than 20x20 meters? Just curious. I was thinking that for this reason, I'd like to come up with a shotgun. I have an idea floating in my head if anyone wants to hear it as I can't build it for the obvious usual reasons.

Well it's getting kind of annoying to go around asking people or just not being in the know of who's doing what so I had the bestest idea evah!!! Make a thread!! Lik ZOMG!!! Anyways, yeah just post whenever you're making something new and talk about the following. -What you're making -What features it'll have -If and when it'll be posted -And finally any pictures you may have (not required though) And keep it to K'nex please. This is the K'nex forum after all so I'd think that's obvious.

Turret-Fed Shotgun: A 3 barreled shotgun, each barrel capable of 50 feet of range, that strikes 3 rounds out of a TR-18 turret simultaneously. One trigger pulls all the blocks at the same time during firing. One master pin pulls back the 3 firing pins. It is also important to note that the blocks should just barely touch the firing pins because there will be 3 times as much pressure for the trigger to overcome as a typical gun because there are 3 blocks. -by Oblivitus This concept has also been posted to: https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Concepts/
