K'nex Echo Ball Machine Instructions

Introduction: K'nex Echo Ball Machine Instructions

Hello everyone, I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving. I have recently made a new ball machine, Echo. This ball machine features new elements that I will point out in the ible. It has four paths and is piece friendly for some. This instructable is still in the beta stages and will be fully completed sometime next week. For now though, please enjoy my newest ball machine. A video will be posted soon as well.

    Yes, this is amazingly hardcore; and it is even cooler that it has instructions. :3 Here, have a picture that reflects the level of awesomeness this has. Actually, take two, as it isn't letting me remove the second one I put on accident.
