Knex Gun Builder is giving up knex forever. This saddens me greatly and I don't want such a wonderful builder, and such a wonderful member of this site to just walk away forever. Knex is such a wonderful thing and you can express your ideas through knex whether you are young or old. If you want him to stay and keep his knex, LEAVE A COMMENT. NOW. If we can get 30 people to leave a comment saying they want him to stay, then, he will. C'mon guys, be a part of this, and post the link to this topic on other's orange boards.

Ok, this the best knex builder/gun contests.first contest is the best knex builder contest.Tech-king-----------------------4Kiteman-------------------------4Mepain--------------------------3DSman195276----------------3Perfect Duck-------------------3Oodalumps--------------------2Ironman69---------------------2here i will post the builders people voted for here, as if i premake a list then not every one gets a fair change.in this contest everyone gets two votes. you can only use one of the votes to vote for your self. you HAVE to vote two times or not at all.the second contest is the gun contest.this will be split into 2 categories:category 1: firing pin guns.DM-27--------------------7moretti------------------3OSNJCKMA2----------1K'nex Plasma Rifle--1red impact-------------1project Q---------------1category 2: crossbowsSR-V1----------------------------------4REAPER-------------------------------3Mepains huge knex crossbow--2my crossbow-------------------------1THE RULES ARE:1. YOU HAVE TO VOTE TWO TIMES OR NOT AT ALL IN EACH RANK2. ONLY TWO VOTES ARE ALLOWED3. YOU CAN ONLY VOTE FOR YOUR SELF ONCE IN EACH RANKING4. NO CHEATING IS TOLERATEDif you are unsure of what rank your gun should go into, ask me.the winner gets a 10 rating from me and the joy winning.BIG UPDATE:there is one more contest that is going to happen. it is the contest for the best gun that is posted now. all guns posted before 5/12/08 will not count in this contest. so get cracken on the next gun you are making! you have to make a readable/followable instructable because if you get into the top 5 then i need to be able to make the gun.the dead line for the instructable to be entered into the contest for best gun 6/5/08(subject to change)after that the voting will begin. the voting will end 6/15/08(subject to change)after that i will make the 5 top voted for and get stats for them(i will do this because i can put the exact rubberbands on each gun) and the judging will begin. the judges will be possibly be me, other people, and the winner of the best knex builder contest.i am thinking that judging maybe a better idea then just going by votes because then fake accounts maybe made to rig the voting.so far i think that the judges will be just about anyone that has built a decent gun and has consistently put in good feed back for other users. the ones i know for sure will be judges are :Mepain, Perfect Duck, Oodalumps, me(maybe, thats your decision not mine), the_bruitto_master, and the winner of the best builder contest.when i tie occur during the voting stage of the best gun/builder contest the most recently voted for will appear first, but it is still a tie.so:

Because it didn't work to give Knex Gun Builder my pictures with a comment or whatever I made a topic. For stupid people, 100% CREDIT TO KNEX GUN BUILDER Now about the gun, IT IS AWESOME. I changed the barrel a bit, so the ram rod reach further and the range was so suprising, I got with a lot of rubber bands 21 metres! (uhmm.. about 60 feet I think)!! But that's really good! the only weak thing about the firing was that the bullet flipped sometimes in midair. About the looks, ... Even more amazing. A true masterpiece haha:) And the last thing is that is pretty comfortable.

Alright I know there are tons of other contests and things that are similar all relating mainly to skill so I decided to mix it up a little and ask for more opinion than anything. Who are your favorite builders or at least make you favorite guns? They don't have to be the best guns. This means you don't really need to be a knexpert (although your chances increase) to be "nominated". By the way just for the fun of it to show popular builders I'll add one's avatar after they have been "favorited" 5 times or more. ( I know I won't be right away or maybe not at all but I do want this topic to pass through the filter easier) Alright don't be offended if you're not on here it doesn't mean you aren't good in my eyes. In no particular order... Dsman- Well we are sort of friends in a way so I do look forward to what he makes. We are sort of rivals in a way.Extreme Builder- He's got quite a few innovative designs. He is one of the few people I wanted to take the exact mech or gun and make it.I_am_Canadian- I guess I like him more as a person than for his knex but the combination just overall makes him a favorite.Trauts- Another fellow replicator and that's what I'm all about...mostly.Uh I can't think up any others right now so give me a while. I'd like to say I respect all those who used parts or ideas from my guns for theirs ;pBakenbitz- Well he made the mech that inspired EB's full auto mech. He also made the BBKWG which I find a great gun to compete against for highest rating...if my ratings didn't get attacked by jealous people.P.S. There is no limit...well don't go over board. I'd say pick around 4-6. Don't forget to give a reason why.Oh and my name is TheDunkis like The Dunkis. If anything you capitalize the D in Dunkis. You can address me just as Dunkis when you talk to me as I use The just to emphasize that I'm the only Dunkis. But when you mention me in 3rd person use The Lol and there is your long lesson on how to use my name.

This is a hopper fed assault rifle prototype that has knex gun builder's 90 trigger and hopper system. But It also features my Creeping Death handle. It has decent range with on band, like 35 ft and it gets a good ROF. Sorry for only one picture.

New bldg materials outgas. Old bldgs may have mold, outdated wiring, etc. What would it cost to build old school, but with some of the newer tech? Get the best of both worlds. Perhaps build smaller than the McMansions typical of todays builders.

Howdy, What do KNEX builders use to control robotic projects.I am asking about the physical controller...do most fans use one of the hobbyist controllers (BASIC STAMP, Cricket, Arduino, etc) or do fans hack the RCX/NXT? Does anyone use the old KNEX controller "Leornardo" ? Thanks, Richard

So yeah, as you guys may have noticed, I wasn't around here for a year due to not having knex in that timespan. So my question is, what did I miss? Any big new ball machine builders? Any epic ball machines? New elements? Some totally alternative way of building (like Wipe Out changed the lifts forever)?

I just think this needs to be brought up again and seen some more. Lots of very useful information in here for both new and experienced knex gun builders. And no this is not outdated, do not look at the post date. That is irrelevant. Here you go, read through all of it. All of it. This guide helped me a lot, and should help everyone else as well.
