Flushed a Ball Machine in the Works

Well its been like for ever since I've really been creative with my K'nex, and I've been saying that I'm working on a new machine. Here is the start of my newest idea. Imagine if you will, combining parts from the Big Air ball machine and Corkscrew Canyon machine.. What you end up with is what I call Flushed.

So Far, this machine is almost 15 red rods tall, Still working on the support towers, and ideas for paths and elements. We need more machines for the larger, lighter K'nex balls and that is what I'm trying to work on...

If you have any ideas, suggestions.. contact me...

    No... I'm thinking about adding one or more other lifts.... Just got to make sure they can handle the larger balls that the air lift uses...

    I would say, limit yourself to six paths, but make them each great. Right now, I am working on a project that is only about 6 1/2 feet tall, but it is going to have 13 paths.

    Interesting that you suggest 6 paths. I have 5 paths set up at the separator. I guess I could add 1 or more separators...
