Hello everyone and welcome to yet another K'nex Instructable!
Here is how to sort a lot of K'nex in one day. Just follow the steps and your room will DOUBLE in size just because you sorted your K'nex, is that amazing or what! Well what are we waiting for lets pull out the old Sorting Hat and begin.
Step 1: Set Up
Its time to pull out that radio of yours and put it to use. The first step is to gather ALL your K'nex in one big pile, the loose pieces and the built pieces.
Step 2: Methods
Now there is two ways to take apart and sort K'nex.
A: sort it and put it away at the same time or
B: first take it apart and make a big pile, and then sort it.
Step 3: Method 1
The first method and my preferred method is to sort as you take apart it's quite easy, it just takes time lots of time.
Step 4: Method 2
The second method is only a little different its to break down all your pieces into one gigantic pile and then sort it. It takes about same if not more than the previous method.
Step 5: What to Sort
If your wondering: "where are all the connectors?" then the answer is that I threw all the non-micro connectors into one big box. If you want to sort them go right ahead that is fine with me.
One excellent tip is to put all the pieces into piles and then put them in boxes or containers that way you know what size container to put those pieces in depending on how much there is of them.
Step 6: Storage
Once you have your K'nex in piles put them into boxes and containers. I recently bought these awesome tool boxes from my local hardware store. These containers are really handy when sorting K'nex.
If your wondering what to sort the rods in well what I did is use some plastic drawers.
Step 7: DONE
Congratulations you have sorted your K'nex! Remember to:
