K'NEX Carousel Ride
This K'NEX Carousel Ride spins around when you turn the handle.
It can be built using:
1. A K'NEX Base kit
First, assemble the six 3D connectors shown in the photo opposite.
Please visit Handy Hint A4 if you need help to do this.
Then, build the base
add six white rods
build the second layer
add onto the base
and add the upper section of the base.
Now assemble the vertical drive shaft
and add it into the base.
Next, assemble the horizontal drive shaft
..and add that into the base as well, so that the yellow and blue gears mesh.
Build the centre part of the top section
..and assemble 8 "swing rides".
Now attach the swing rides to the top section
..and complete the model by attaching the top section to the base, secure by a purple clip.
To test your carousel, turn the handle until the carousel is spinning quite quickly, and then release.
