Knex Ball Machine Metaloid

Introduction: Knex Ball Machine Metaloid

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 ...


Finely it's here! My first knex ball machine. It features 8 paths and 3 new elements. It took about two months to complete. I built this one a while ago, I just never got around to posting it, enjoy.

    Thanks. Yah, there is no vid. I made this before I got my video camera.

    Very nice job! I like the tight loop and the overall odd shape of the model. Are those legos at the top?

    I still don't understand how you ball machine builders can create such huge contraptions. It's pretty amazing.

    I do. I just mean that the whole thing has to work so fluidly, while being enormous. I would fail so hard at these lol.

    Sorry guys there will be no video. I took the ball machine down a while ago, and I don't have a working video camera.
