Knex ideas Answered

Hey guys, it's me again.

I decided to make this forum, as many people have awesome knex ideas, but arent experienced enough to make it, don't have the pieces, or anything else.
Or maybe you have an idea that would be cool, and just suggest it here, people will see it and maybe pick up on it and decide on trying it out!
Share your ideas, models, concepts and anything else!

Your ideas can be anything, from small thing such as small model cars and ball machines to full auto mechs and awesome motors(V4, V8 type motors).

Happy building!


crank action.
heres how it works, you make a wheel with a bit sticking out and use that to turn it, thenwhen you turn it, it turns a cog which pulls back the ramrod, until it runs out of grip on the ramrod and comes smashing back into the bullet and again and again. it would be bloody high ROF and make it a turret gun and it would be one frikin awsm piece of work

Already been done, my friend.

 STFU my idea.
ill replace it with a motor then.


And that's really not necessary.

 sry, but i jst had the idea and spent 7 hours on it. im pretty annoyed.

....K.... But there's no need to flip out. Try researching before you claim an idea. Though, if you want to be liked in the knex community, you really shouldn't claim ideas at all. If you want rights to something, build it, and post it. Otherwise people will always give you $##T.

 yeah, sorry about that, after working 7 hours on a fully auto to find out its already been made is very maddening.

Ok, I can understand that. But please, take my above advice.

Yes but here are ways it would be better:
1. It would allow for more power
2. Higher ROF
3. You don't have to mess with switches when you don't want to fire

Yeah, sure. You're added. I'll PM you my account name.

my idea is is to have a tube made of connectors attached to a rod, but with one that has the rod though the hole, this will act as a trigger.

lolz JK
Im busy making a fully auto...
this place isnt for telling ppl what you are going to make, its telling them to make it.

not neccesarily, specially if you have two 600 round mags
may make em smaller, cos i dont have enough to fill em both.

a pump action shotgun that actually has the pump in the place where a real shotgun also has it's pump. I hope you understand this :/

I don't have enough time to build this right now but that would be cool!!

 You mean where you push it instead of pull it?  Thats how the spas 12 works but that would be very hard to do with knex.  Have you seen my new pump action?  It uses a new type of bullet transfer system.

hey check mine out its not finished but Im getting help from everyone, and the pump is the same size as a normal pump and it has a top loading mag. maybe with someones help then I can make it load like a normal shotgun.

I would like to see a crank action knex music box.
