Random Knex Things
« on: May 02, 2016, 06:55:59 pm »
We all probably discovered some random little ideas on how to connect certain pieces in an un-expected way, however these were way too small to make a post about them.

This is exactly what this thread is for, post your little useless fun knex things away~


I'll start with some interesting way of making a knex chain.....

Hmm that's cool.  I had a few but forgot them. Is it okay to post small builds here that you don't want to make instruction /ibles for?

Ah yes. Here's a little odd thing I made some time ago looking for ideas on how to make an explosive.

I love little hacks like this! I've got a few that I've come up with, I'll see if I can find them and post some here.

Was attempting to make the gravity spikes from call of duty black ops 3 and came across this. This seems quite useful, its a combination of a couple of techniques.

It fits really well onto a rod,  just like a wheel.

Similar to Linkin_J_Knex's post, here's something I came up with a few years ago. I was toying with the idea of coming up with a structure that was "impossible" to build or take apart.

Got partly through the handle and realised I definitely don't have enough yellow half moons to carry on. Just thought I'd show what I did so far

Will it be
- a helicopter?
- a 6-spoked wheel?
- A podracer?

The last, most likely.
