Another K'Nex 'Slot' Machine

Post by oldvic »

Welcome to the K'Nex Bouncing-Ball Amusement Machine!

Well, what else was I supposed to do during Lockdown?

This machine is very loosely based on Bryan's Bullion. Whereas that machine has a spinning pointer, this machine has a bouncing ball, but the concept is the same.

Enjoy!

Thank you for your kind comments.

I started it in March and finished it last week. I had many problems to solve on the way, but I like to give my brain a good workout!

simply incredible.

How many of your creations do you still have built? I assume you don't keep them assembled long-term?

I posted some constructions in this forum on 1st March 2019 ('Some K'Nex Slot Machines').

I have a large collection of old penny slots.

I still have my binary calculating machine, Bonanza machine, Penny Pusher and my latest Ping Pong Ball fruit machine. Oh, and my grandfather clock. I only last week dismantled my Mark III fruit machine because it had been superseded by the Ping Pong Ball one and it was just gathering dust. The construction of all these machines can be found in the Instructables website:

Have a look at my TedPounds YouTube channel to see how mad I am!

Re this Bouncing Ball machine, I reckon it took from 200 to 250 hours all told.
