    Hey man I love your creations. I used to be really into knex but found other interests later. I recently came upon 25000 piece collection again, and being stuck inside due to winter, I organized it all and am getting back into making stuff like ball machines, which you give me good ideas. Keep the good work up :)

    Haha ik heb een beter idee!
    Bouw een mega goeie ball machine, post hem NA 1 juli, en dan kan je ermee meedoen aan de knex-wedstrijd.
    Bij de prijzen zit o.a. mega veel knex!
    Ideaal voor u als je het mij vraagt :D

    Het enigste wat tot nu toe geweten is, is dat de wedstrijd begint op 1 juli en dat de prijzen hopen knex zijn:
    De wedstrijd wordt georganiseerd door instructables zelf, maar ik veronderstel dat ze samenwerken met knex, want ze moeten ook hun prijzen van ergens halen. En dan wordt er waarschijnlijk reclame gemaakt hier op instructables voor de knex-site, zo gaat dat meestal ook met de andere wedstrijden.

    I think knexmaster is the right name for you. you are tottaly epic. By the way , why is it sandro knex master.
