Awesome Jk Brickworks

LEGO Particle Accelerator

LEGO Particle Accelerator

Jason from JK Brickworks shows off a nifty LEGO machine inspired by the design of particle accelerators. Instead of zooming protons and electrons around its ring, this one accelerates and collides tiny plastic spheres. A build kit will be crowdfunded on Bricklink, with limited time pre-orders kicking off 7.1.2021.

Never-ending LEGO Climber

Never-ending LEGO Climber

Jason of JK Brickworks built this wonderful mechanical LEGO plaything inspired by an equally great retro Japanese battery commercial. It features a fire-fighting robot dog that climbs to the top of a tower, then smoothly descends to the bottom to repeat the task over and over.

LEGO Domino Machine 2

LEGO Domino Machine 2

We’ve previously seen a LEGO machine that could neatly distribute and space wooden dominoes. But this one works a bit differently. JK Brickworks‘ machine carries stacks of LEGO bricks in a cartridge then dispenses them to form perfect lines of dominoes. Its drivetrain allows it to be driven in straight lines or curves.

LEGO Suspended Train

LEGO Suspended Train

JK Brickworks shows off another one of his neat LEGO creations – a train that hangs from a track instead of riding on rails below. The design uses LEGO roller coaster track and motorized rollers above the gondola-style railway cars. Watch the build, or skip to 4:27 to see it running.

LEGO Archer Automaton

Jason of JK Brickworks shows of an amazing LEGO kinetic sculpture of Greek goddess Artemis. When a crank is turned, she draws her bow and fires an “arrow” made from a piece of flexible tubing. The mechanism’s design was inspired by a wooden automata created by Del Cat.

LEGO Robot GBC Module

LEGO Robot GBC Module

We’re surprised that LEGO machine expert JK Brickworks has never built a Great Ball Contraption module before, but his first one definitely lives up to his standards. Watch as four tiny LEGO robots work along an assembly line, each passing a ball to the next to move it down the line. It also appears to work as a hypnosis device.

LEGO Halloween Candy Launcher

LEGO machine maker JK Brickworks follows up last year’s Halloween candy dispenser with an even better one. His latest machine spins round and round, and flings candy bars at the kids. Want one? Buy the LEGO 17101 BOOST Creative Toolbox, and follow the directions here.

LEGO Kinetic Flight Sculptures

LEGO Kinetic Flight Sculptures

Jason over at JK Brickworks came up with this fun idea – a kinetic sculpture which features two airplanes flying through the air. After lots of positive feedback, he created an alternate version based on the trench run in Star Wars. Vote for The Pursuit of Flight kit on LEGO Ideas.

LEGO Voyageurs Automaton

LEGO Voyageurs Automaton

Jason of JK Brickworks shows off another slick mechanical LEGO build – a canoe being paddled by a pair of brick-built French-Canadian fur traders. Like his other models, it can be hand-cranked or run with a LEGO Power Functions motor. More build details here.
