Introduction: Knex Ball and Chain (flail)
This is my FIRST INSTRUCTABLE
you might have seen instructables just like this one before, but they don't seem all that sturdy.
I have made a knex flail that is relatively strong, and easy to make
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You'll Need
this is what you need
(the chain can be found in the screamin' serpent or corkscrew canyon sets)
Not pictured: knife, paper, duct tape (optional)
Step 2: The Handle
start adding the red rods onto the 2 black connectors
Step 3: WAIT!
Before you add the last rod, put the brown peice on the blue rod, string it through one of the black connectors, add a white semicircle, then add the last rod
(use the pictures for help)
Step 4: Chain
you can make it as short or as long as you want
Step 5: Ball
make a paper ball and cover it in tape
cut a hole in it with the knife, and stick a yellow rod with a semi circle into it and tape it on
Step 6: Connecting Ball to Chain
get a piece of chain and cut the ends off
add it to the semi circle on the ball and connect the chain to it
Step 7: DONE!
you are now done with the knex flail
to customise it, you can add duct tape to give it a chrome-like finish or add spikes!
