Knex Ball Machine - Splat Answered

This is a small ball machine that I made while I was sitting in my bedroom thinking about my childhood. I was origionally going to post it, but it didn't quite turn out the way I intended. Its small, and is fun to show to guests and whatnot.

For those wondering about the name, me and my buddy had just finished editing the video. I realised that I needed a name for it, and just that moment my buddy's bird puked on my head, making a splat sort of sound. Presto, the name splat.

Since the video wasn't going to be anything special, I put it to ragtime music and aged it accordingly.

Hope you like it!

Edit

I've counted the pieces. Just for the heck of it, I'll run a little contest to see who can guess closest to the real number. The prize is a virtual high five and cookie. Closes on Friday.

Updated - Winners!

The correct answer is... (drum roll)... 1749! This means that cj81499 is the clear winner, being off by only 14 pieces! Good job, and congratulations! Thanks for guessing everyone.

Where do you ever buy all that balls? exept the 'new' balls, I have only 4 of them!

Actually I have 30, but I never use the 9 balls from Motorized Madness and Big Air Ball Tower.
