K'nex Ball Machine Update

Introduction: K'nex Ball Machine Update

Here's the first Instructables update on my new ball machine. So far there are 4 lifts, and 5 working paths. It features 2 new elements by me, the large helix and the inverted loop. I plan for this machine to include 6 lifts and around 25 paths when its complete. I'm trying something different on this machine as well, I'm using more unconventional lifts, just to mix things up.

    Looks great! It's good that you're using lifts other than chain lifts, since these types of ball machines are usually just chain lifts.
