Knex Ball Machine - Splat Answered

This is a small ball machine that I made while I was sitting in my bedroom thinking about my childhood. I was origionally going to post it, but it didn't quite turn out the way I intended. Its small, and is fun to show to guests and whatnot.

For those wondering about the name, me and my buddy had just finished editing the video. I realised that I needed a name for it, and just that moment my buddy's bird puked on my head, making a splat sort of sound. Presto, the name splat.

Since the video wasn't going to be anything special, I put it to ragtime music and aged it accordingly.

Hope you like it!

Edit

I've counted the pieces. Just for the heck of it, I'll run a little contest to see who can guess closest to the real number. The prize is a virtual high five and cookie. Closes on Friday.

Updated - Winners!

The correct answer is... (drum roll)... 1749! This means that cj81499 is the clear winner, being off by only 14 pieces! Good job, and congratulations! Thanks for guessing everyone.
