Gears???

Hello! Convolution is almost done being taken apart, and I will be sorting it and counting it this weekend. Meanwhile, I've started on a new project. As of now, I only have a compact gearbox. I won't say what it does or how it works just yet, to make things interesting... :P For those of you who know, please do not spoil anything. Expect a full update around Christmas.

Knex differential

I created the differentials a while ago. Larger versions are possible without any modifications of the basic pieces. This version is designed to be smaller in diameter than the main drive gear, requiring a modification to that gear.

As you have seen(or not sean) i am making battle bots. one has a machine gun and the other has a knife(i also have a mod for a drill that does not use the orange gear) they are made that there is just driferent atachements on the bot body. so even with out the body you could make a mod( like a saw) with out the body. that is what this forum is for. people who can not make the body. you can post a mod and i could try it for you and give instructions for you and other people. i will give you full credit for the mod.

K'nex Gear Ratios

What Ratios Do the K'nex Gears Produce? I have noticed there have been a lot of questions about gears for k'nex models and in particular, engines but there have been no documents or information on what the different gear combinations actually convert the input speed to. On the document attached there are the worked out combinations and what the speed produced is, but you will notice that the combinations only go up to three gears; this is because if you have only three different gears, you will have to repeat atleast one gear therefore the ratio would be able to be created using less gears as intended.  The new file has now been uploaded. I hope this helps. MattJoeP

Gearbox Sharpener for knex

NOTE THIS IS A MODIFIED VERSION OF THE ONE I MADE LOOKING AT THE VIDEO ON YOUTUBE! IT WAS INTENDED AS A GEAR BOX BUT I ALSO TURNED IT INTO A SHARPENER AND A CHAIN SAW!!! It is hand cranked so... yeahThis is a knex sharpener tool that uses gear ratios to spin the rod at high speeds faster then a large yellow gear to small blue or grey gear ratio which is a 1/5 rotation ratio, for this gearbox though you achieve a magnificent 1/32 rotation ratio. One spin of the cog or yellow gear or starting gear whatever = end rotationWhen spinning at high speeds use a knife or sand paper to refine the sharpness of your rod to a dangerous needle if needed, or you just want to clean up a bad cut job from a pencil sharpener or knife cutter? This gearbox will smoothen out our refine your knex rod... NOTE THIS CAN SHARPEN THE ROD SO SHARP THAT IT IS DEADLY... NEVER EVER FIRE THIS ROD EVER TRUST ME NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER SHOOT THE SHARPENED ROD AT YOURSELF OR SOMEONE OR ON AN UNRELIABLE KNEX GUN OR A STUPID KNEX GUN ETC THIS THING CAN MAKE YOUR RODS DEADLY TRUST ME IT HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE!!Anyway enjoy!

KNEX TANK with a mg with no chain.

My tankit has a mg. and uses no chain peaces. the only exotic peace it uses is a orange gear. like a yellow gear it has the pegs sicking out of it but only has half the pegs. it can be made by cutting off half the pegs if you want. not very power full but that is because i am using a clasic motor. the motor has to pull bach the ram so to much rubberbands and the motor can not pull bach the ram. if made with a beter motor it could be stronger.o and the last picture is of all my knex guns :)

New Knex Crossbow Idea

This new idea came from wickys crossbow, and I havnt got it working yet. The new idea is basically an autoload crossbow. You just rip the old handle off, and start on a new one, but on the new one you have red gears on the front and somewhere on the back of your new handle. The red gears need to be able to run black chain links across the handle. So you put black chainlinkson across the handle of your crossbow. On the chain links you could put a little hook, so that when the little hook meets up with the horizontal rubberband it hooks on to it and brings it back to the end of your handle. Not that it would be in any use whatsoever its just an auto load idea.If you didnt get this topic,tell me so I can make it a little more clearer. I have no camera that I can use right now ,so I cant show you what I have so far.

My new knex lift

Yeah.... I have told you guys that I was building a new lift well... The lift didn't work. I tried everything to get it fixed but it just didn't work. Here is how the lift works: A large arm rotates up and down from 0 dergrees to about 90 degrees by using a crank. The piont was: the motor wasn't strong enough to lift the whole arm. The second thing was that I didn't have enough pieces to make the tracks after it so I will build a smaller version which will probably does work and I will also post instructions for that. Here is the parts list for if you want to know how many pieces the lift took up Rods: Green- 229 White- 126 Blue- 207 Yellow- 82 Red- 12 Grey- 6 Total rods: 662 Connectors Dark grey- 32 Light grey- 24 Red- 68 Green-27 Orange- 26 Yellow- 123 Purple- 112 Blue- 62 White- 20 Total Connectors: 494 Others: Blue spacer- 72 Silver spacer- 38 Mettallic clip - 4 Tan clip- 9 Y- clip- 14 Ball joints- 3 Wheels- 4 Red gear- 2 Blue gear - 1  Total others: 149 Total: 1305  Here are some pictures of  the destruction but i want to keep the real lift a secret untill the second version is finished

knex large gun help

Problem-i am building a large knex bazooka that needs a customized firing system. it needs to hold on to the projectile with some sort of fingers, which are to release when triggered from the rear of the holder, and the holder needs to ride in the rails of the gun, and it needs to be able to attach to a length of string. operation is-latch projectile in claws, pull both claw and projectile into barrel, pull to rear of barrel, stop motor, pull trigger, which through a series of levers will push to release on the back of the claw, launching the projectile. can anyone create such a claw as im stuck. ive got the gun, motor, gears, and projectiles, but i need some claw befor i build the trigger so they'll be compatible.

My new semi-auto RBG

This is my new semi-automatic, true trigger RBG. Normally nothing new. But this one can take twice the amount of rubberbands. Thanks to some creative use of a red gear ( I'm aware I didn't use an actual red gear, that's because I didn't have any. So I sliced the pegs of a yellow gear ) This actually started as a mod for Dsman1's RBG, but it turned out to be something different. It still uses the system that is somewhat his, of a red gear turning a blue gear. It can take 15+ rubberbands without tearing itself apart ( Nearly does though ;). My record is about 18 or 19 rubberbands on it. The reliability isn't 100%, because there is an uneven amount of pits in a red gear (33), which are divided by 4 stages. So it's hard to get a good pattern for the rubber bands to shoot of. This basicly means that sometimes it either won't shoot, or it will shoot 2 rubberbands at once. I don't know if this is a problem with an actual red gear though, since my altered yellow is far from perfect. Do you want me to post it, or is there no demand for a new RBG?

I GOT RIPPED OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so i decided i would get the Motorized madness ball machine. it had 2004 parts, chain links, gears, and a motor. i thought that would be a jackpot.but i was wrong, as most of the parts were those tiny knex parts that we all hate. there was only one bag of real knex and a bag of chain links and gears with the longer rods. the 5 balls were also of good use. so, what was the best knex set you ever bought?

It would be a semi auto belt fed knex machine gun. I haven't tried anything with it yet. The idea is you pull the trigger it turns some gears and pulls the belt enough to shoot one round then when you release the trigger it resets the trigger. So...... any one want to try the idea???

ConveyerBelt

Hey guys I was thinkin on workin on a conveyor belt right now so It would be easier to clean up stuff and all so if you guys got any idea's or anything like that it would be great to help me get started. I do not have many gears so i can't make anything with a lot of gears. I have made a prototype that pushes things along a small table put it doesn't really work very well because you would have to use only rods that are yellow and bigger or else they might fall through cracks. I am just playing around to see If i can find a decent Knex belt. Here are my pictures of my prototype... It pushes things along the table sort of thing... If anybody can figure how you can make a round conveyor belt able that would be very thrilling!!!!! The red rods push the items against the table and it doesn't jam when i tested it and left it on for like 1 hour. If you don't have this motor you can use the other motor but I'm not sure how it might work so I hope this might give anybody a idea to build something.

Making it more powerful?

Hi,  I have brought a sphero 2.0 which for those who don't know it a robotic ball about the size of a baseball. I decided to try and make a car for it out of knex although I will only be able to make it go backwards and forwards. I built a frame thing with a small wheel in the middle of it and sphero sits on top. The axle that the wheel is on has a gear which then connects to the drive wheel axles on the back using another gear. This works fine when in the air but when on the ground it's too heavy for sphero to power it. I've tried putting bigger gears on the front and vice versa, i've also tried using a pulley but it just isn't budging at all.  Say if I was using the standard knex motors how would I go about making it produce more power?

another full auto machine gun mechanism

Right this is just the mech of the machine gun you will have to make the mag/clip/barrel/everything.You may have seen this already on the comment on https://www.instructables.com/id/8-SHOT-KNEX-HAND-GUN-REVOLVER/?&sort;=NEWEST&limit;=50&offset;=50The comment with it was posted May 7, 2008. 12:25 PM.Basicaly the hammer is attached to a small cog, a motor or handle is attached to a cog with only 4 teeth(on each half) the 4 teeth will crank the hammer back then when it runs out of teeth it will snap back, it actually works(I would have posted but my sister destroyed it D= ) te only problem I had was the mag, I attempted to build a box mag, oh and the fact you need a metal rod for the handle/motor and for the hammer with gear on(I lost 3 red rods because it just twisted the hell out of them, it was impossible to use them again)So you can only make it with some sort of renforced rod, but overall it actually works.this is just a small step by step type thingStep 1sand down 3/4 of a small cog.Step 2to speed up rate of fire add speed up gears (optional)Step 3make hammer, lock canibalised cog onto a rod with hammerStep 4connect it to speed up gear/sStep 5add elastic band to hammerStep 6add mag, clip or belt. note: if you make belt the add timmed gears to the speed up gear.
