Project Ideas and Help / My tan clips keep breaking!
« on: February 16, 2020, 04:31:06 am »
My tan clips keep breaking.  I have this uber strong geared hoist and the tan clips that clip into the 3rd yellow gears keep snapping from, the sheer force.   Should i super glue the tan clips to the gear?

I have been using 1/4 inch steel rods from home depot and wrapping tape on the ends to hold on the spacers and my flat ride sections.   Knex user group does not have them and ebay does not too.   Any other way to get these steel rods with the fluted knex ends?  Can I buy a bunch off of someone on this site?  I live in the usa.

It has a giant square collection funnel so far that will lead to a lift on the corner of the future truss structure.

Is something like this possible with using knex or possibly lego?

How about a cut in half PVC pipe?

Would using flexible cardboard from a spiral bound notebook work?

Project Ideas and Help / Ball Machine half pipe does not work well.
« on: April 14, 2019, 04:21:44 am »
I am trying to make a half pipe for my new ball machine. 

 

 The ball drops in at the top and should swing back and forth good until it nears the bottom of the halfpipe.  Then it should exit through the little hole.    The ball instead drops in and very lazily does two or so very small swings back and forth and then rolls straight to the exit.   I am using 2 layers of paper for the halfpipe.
