That is incredible - it's orders of magnitude beyond the various guns we usually see. Even if you haven't got enough photos to write up a proper 'ible, you really ought to post this video properly in the main section. Kudos.

you mean make an instructable that dosnt exactly show you how to build it step by step. for me to do that i would have to know that at least 3 people are going to build it.

Maybe outline the planning stages, any unique features you invented. Or just focus on part of it - the launcher, or the conveyor-lift.

. By the same token, if you don't like Kitewife's (or any one else's) comments, quit reading them. Duh! . BTW, where I come from, telling someone's wife to shut up is grounds for a fat lip. ;)

Take a chill pill, youngling!

You really ought to check the age of posts before you reply to them.

(By the way, the post you replied to was from me - we have a weird bug thing going on that seems to be limited to just our computer, that means that sometimes what gets posted from this PC gets attributed to the wrong family member. It may get worse now that three of us have accounts.)

Criticism can be a constructive process, not just highlighting faults, but suggesting improvements.

If you can't deal with criticism, you are certainly in the wrong place.

I cant be turned away from guns......mostly because I cant build stuff like coasters and ball machines. I would need 100x more parts than I have right now.

It's best to design on your own. if you want to become a knex coaster builder that's great get a few screamin' serpent sets, and build a few small ones first.

lol Apollos chariot... some one on SScoasters.net is re-creating it and don't build something huge PLEASE build small stuff at first like a 3 ft. coaster. So here's your list of things so to. 1. join sscoasters.net 2. start a thread in upcoming motels ,and tell everyone about how it's gonna go. 3. Don't act like noob every one is very judge mental so use good grammar ,capitalization ,and punctuation. 4.don't post 2qwice in a row and dont bump old threads to the first page if there like 2 weeks since the last post then leave them alone.

i just finished the station, chain lift, semi drop (drop before the main one, witch was really hard) and tomorrow i'm going to start on the main drop, then wait for the knex from ebay to arrive because i don't have enough chain, or tubing.
