Introduction: K'nex Arcade Coin Pusher Instructable

About: nothing much really.

I have had some requests to create an ible for this coin pusher. I am using a drill as a motor to turn the axle because I don't have a k'nex motor. I am sure that you can easily modify it so you can use a normal K'nex motor. Please rate well and subscribe.

    Can you make the whole thing bigger and not cut the red rods?
