Journey - a K'nex Ball Machine Preview

About: Hey, my name's Boris and I build K'nex Ball Machines. I am always trying to come up with new ideas, and trying to improve myself. Please check out my YouTube :)

A preview for an upcoming ball machine. I ran out of K'nex, so I can't work on it, unfortunately. I'm still looking for second-hand though, so I'll get more soon, hopefully.

This ball machine has one lift (till now) designed by me. one arm is flipped, so the one arm deposits the arm on the right, the other one on the left. Those separated paths split in two more paths, wich makes a total of four paths. I used two of my Tini Tilters as well, and I made some sweet corners. This video only features one path, wich may even change later.
