Knex Ball Machine Element: Falling Bridge

About: Hey everyone. I'm Thibault Art and my biggest hobby is to build huge machines in K'nex. I like also to draw a lot and take care of my corn snake. On this page you will find K'nex ball machines, K'nex element...

Hey everyone,

These instructions shows you how to build a falling track element that can be used as a bridge. This element is very usefull when you need a ball to cross over something without loosing too much height. Just make sure you have all the wheels and tyres that are needed to make this element (see step 2). It's pretty big and works 99% of the time. If you want to see this element in action you can always watch the video.

If there are any poblems/ questions feel free to ask me in the comments below.

Thanks for watching/ building,

Thibault art.

I just looked to see if there was any problem, but it looks to work fine. Maybe if you go to my YouTube channel you will be able to watch the video :).
