Knex question.

Does anyone know who's is stronger? Oodalumps's cannon or I_Am_Canadian's? They both look monstrous, but From looks, Oodalumps's looks stronger to me.

Practicality: It is practical for the elderly and lazy people so 200/300 points.

Who's Cannon Rules----------I_AM_CANADIAN's heavy cannon rules!!

Its official, and i accept my defeat, IAC's was rated better and more people prefer it. How will it compare to my newest instructable, my HIGH POWER CROSSBOW. Whose cannon is better, My Light Cannon V2.2, or I_AM_CANADIAN's Heavy cannon V5. They are both special in their own ways. His is more powerful and flies 80 feet. It loads in over 30 seconds. Mine is a little less powerful but flies almost 150 feet. Mine loads in under 15 seconds. Also, Mine uses 8 rubber bands and his uses 16. Here is the puncturing using the same front on the ammo. Try to build them before you decide. WHOSE IS BETTER. Note-I did not fake these pictures. Try them yourself and the results will be the same. I am not trying to start a fight I just want to see whose you think is better. Note. The Video was shot with IAC's V5 and my V2.3. I just built V3.0 but did not post it yet.

Message to the K'nexers

A Poem I write to you of my observations About certain peoples' latest creations Yes this has been said before About this endless comment war The Jamalam and of course I.A.C Have seen the same things as me But they both wrote in regular style Which never stuck: not versatile So I write to you in poetry But the views are same, we all agree But my rhymes will stick into your brain The frontier in this web campaign See I notice that our knex community Lacks complete and utter immunity To spite, hate and lack of respect To many peoples' knex project It's mainly guns, but there are others too That are attacked in a ridiculous taboo That's taboo as in prejudice, you see It's gone beyond reasonable degree K’nex is a toy, don’t forget That fun really is the main object So why all the hate so suddenly It puts ya down, can’t you see? People like me, and naming others too Get ratings based not on what but who Why rate so low based on the person The situation is starting to worsen Insane Creator is one of those Who gets nought with a five in endless blows Upon his models: they ain't that bad It's who he is, it's really quite sad See why would you rate if you had no idea Of the thing you are rating: It's still unclear What would posess you to continue this theme In lowering someone's self esteem It's not just ratings, to me they ain't worth it It's the comments people think, write and submit "What the heck? This is so bad" to name an example But it's one of hundreds: a mere sample Regulars are praised, no matter what they do IAC; Killer~safe cracker to name a few True, they are good, I won't put them down But what about the other side of this web town? If I should have posted Mr. Doomsday Or put that cablecar on display They would never have got to where they are now Because I ain't as regarded, why should we allow? Allow for this rudeness and all this spite To continue all day and all through night We were never like this, can you remember? Time for a little bit of nostalgia? Once upon a time, the community was  Supportive and friendly simply because We wanted friendships and much better outcome And to spitefulness? we never did succumb! So I say please return to how we were Helping every other entrepreneur Not attacking others like wild bulls: Please, “show a smile instructables!”            -Lowney

Ultimate Knex Contest has been changed...

Alright well this takes too long so I might as well just start it. Instead of entering and making it a contest anyone can nominate a gun that fits the category. Sorry to disappoint anyone if I did. We are still comparing guns...now we're just comparing all of them instead of entries. Alright from now on...no voting for yourself. Put it this way. What weapon from each category would you want to have and use most in a battle? Don't just put pride in your weapons. Also it would be great if you actually built the gun you vote for...don't just make assumptions...well I guess except for best replica. Weapons mentioned Best Side Arm- TheDunkis with the TDS Radioactive with the SPEC-9 Dsman with dsman's Side Arm popomaster with the glock Most Innovative Gun- popomaster with the glock Best Grenade/Explosive TheDunkis with the D model splodies/ DX8 Splody Bomb I_am_Canadian with the War Bomb flames with the F25 Anti-Personnel Grenade Best Replica of Another Weapon- TheDunkis with the AK-74 Katarukito with the Dragunov Best Gun Overall I_am_Canadian with the super cannon dsman with the DD-27 I_am_Canadian and knexgunner12 with their Battle Rifle I entered some of the guns I remembered but if you have other guns you want to vote for and they fit the category then go ahead. Just copy the form and type out the name of both the creator and their weapon under each category. Best Side Arm- Most Innovative- Best Grenade/Explosive- Best Replica- Best Gun Overall-

Thanks to I_Am_Canadian for the contest round idea. You have to build something practical! Like a grabber for your gramps, or a K'nex keyboard maybe? Or a soda delivery cart? Something you would use everyday. Last day for entry acceptance is 30 Nov. 2009. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ratings will be judged upon these categories: - Practicality 300/900 points. How good is it to use in your everyday life? Do you / would you use it often? - Sturdyness 300/900 points. This speaks for itself, if you use it often, it has to be sturdy. - Extras 300/900 points. By the normal use of your entry, can it do something else too? You start with 100 points on this. Every added function is worth 50 points. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Judges: - Viccie.B1993 - I_Am_Canadian - Oblivitus ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Contestants: - Killer~SafeCracker ENTRY: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-Knex-solar-alarm-clock-with-built-i/ - Knex Mad ENTRY: https://www.instructables.com/id/knex-Grabber-TNKIT-Round-3-Entry/ - Silentassasin21 ENTRY: - AJLeece ENTRY: - Millawi Legend ENTRY: - DJ Radio ENTRY: https://www.instructables.com/community/Knex-video-camera-holder-TNKIT-entry/ - Owen-Mon-82397 ENTRY: https://www.instructables.com/community/Knex-fan/ - K'nexguy ENTRY: - CJ81499 ENTRY: https://www.instructables.com/id/tnkit-round-3-cj81499s-entry/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is the quarter final.

Big Powerful Knex Crossbow: Review

Big Powerful Knex Crossbow Review[http://Link! https://www.instructables.com/id/S2KFDMQF1B3RAQY/#CDKYQYLF1B3REUF]Made by Wicky.Alight. Here it is.1 - Power/Range 8/10 Great power, the ammo goes nowhere near straight though. 2 - Accuracy 8/10 Very good, but once again the ammo doesn't help.3 - Looks 8/10 I think it looks fine, but it could have been better.4 - Ease of use (reloading and firing) 10/10 Easy as pie. What else can I say? Just grab the ammo, put it on the elastics pull back and release. I can do about fire about 3 every 2 seconds.5 - Reliability (does it jam?) 9/10 It never "Jams", but on rare occasions the elastic can catch the ammo and fling it backwards.6 - Size Efficiency 9/10 Uses very few pieces that are not needed. Barrel is piece efficient too.Overall: Awesome. Great power, very rapid firing and quite accurate, makes this gun a must. Perfect for wars (could be a tadbit smaller, come to think of it). Thats it!

My New Knex Gun- DG12 Marksman rifle

Hello Knexers! this is a new gun that is unpostable due to a bug that won't let me upload images on 'create'.This is a rachet system slingshot rifle. It is good enough to be a snipers rifle, but due to the mediocre accuracy produced, I decided to make it a Marksman rifle. It is accurate up to 30ft or so, but its maximum range is about 60-80ft. The mechanism is always reliable (Thanks to I_am_Canadian's striker pistol) and never breaks. The gun is only 3-layers thick due to my lack of pieces. There is a foldable rear sight positioned at the front of the stock.  Ammo is variable from a blue rod with a red connector, all the way up to a grey/black/clear size with a red connector. I would not recommend this as a primary, due to the time taken to reload in all slingshots. If so make this a sort of secondary. Mods: Last two pictures Credit: I_am_Canadian for his striker pistol Dedicated to Geodez and DJRadio, who make me laugh (geodez) and dedicate time to help me (DJ).

New K'nex wheel design

I've been working on a new ball machine for a few years and finally decided to tear it down and start anew; one thing I did save was this wheel. It uses chain for a rim to make a "perfectly" circular wheel. With grey rods on every rim connector it is quite heavy, in my ball machine I used a delay to send 3 balls onto it at once to make it spin nicely. If you want you could only use once white connector and 8 grey rods to make a lighter frame that would spin well with only one ball on it. Peace! ~IaC

Knex Ball Machine - Off the Wall

Hey! Here's the most recent project of mine. Its a ball machine build entirely in my bathroom. It was a fun challenge and produced a very unique ball machine I think. Nothing too fantastic in terms of elements or anything. The triple loop, chain slide, the geared ferris wheel and perhaps the double helix thingys are the only things worth really noting. Anyway, hope you folks like it. Sorry about the photos being so dark, its hard to get good lighting in a small room with no windows. Enjoy! Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnc-BIQzoWo Update: Total piece count: 8891. That makes Sproutless the winner with a guess of 18,500. Congrats!
