Introduce Yourself / Hi! I'm mathsboy314

Hi, my name is Jake. I am 17 years old and live in Australia and have build building ball machines since 2009, but knex since 2005.
I was Knex Fan of the Month in April 2015, see http://www.knex.com/photos-and-videos/fan-of-the-month/2015/April-Jake/

I mainly build ball machines but I also like building gearboxes which I then use for my ball machines. My ball machines are usually slow, small, compact, and complex.
I try to build at least two new elements in each of my ball machines, but usually these contain large mechanisms that crowd the ball machine and make the track less visible.

I have tried making perpetual motion machines out of Knex. I did not succeed (obviously) but it inspired me to build lift/element hybrids, such as my favourite element, the weighted kick. (http://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Weighted-kick-ball-machine-liftelement-hybrid/)
