Introduction: Knex Ball Machine Copper

About: Hi, I'm KneXtreme. I'm a Christian and I'm home schooled. I love to build with almost anything especially knex. I also do Taekwondo and collect coins. Just so you know, I don't hang around youtube ...
Hi guys.
     Welcome to my newest ball machine copper. Sorry about some of the grainy pictures, I was building it in my basement. (which I will never do again) In my opinion the video turned out better than I had expected. Pictures 34 through 38 shows you how I modified the stepper lift to fit the newer balls. So I guess you could say it's a modified modified stepper lift. Anyway here are the details and some of the elements.
  • networks - 3
  • lifts - 5
  • tracks - 12
  • new elements (including new types) - 18
  • height - aprox. 5'
  • length - aprox. 6'
  • depth - aprox. 3'
  • pieces - not a clue
  • building time - about 2 months
Here is a list of the lifts and elements I used. All the new elements will be posted on my guide. I will also post instructions of the wheel lift and the stacker lift when I get time.
  • Alternating arm lift - Shadowman39 and Tornado96
  • Modified stepper lift - Shadowman39
  • Stacker lift - bezempje95
  • Conveyor belt (new type) Keggore1 (aka therealkeggore)
  • The elliptica - I_am_Canadian
  • The 2 ball ball arm - sathothy
  • The two balls divider - sandroknexmaster
  • panel stairs - nschmal1
Enjoy the video which contains two songs from my favorite movie series ever, The Chronicles of Narnia.

    It's a tighter spiral than usual spiral bowls.
