Hannes Knutssons Youtube Channel: Special thanks to Marcus Dimbodius who has been around throughout the whole build and suggested the cymbal placement and the use of the conveyer belt for the marble transportation. Dimbodius is an artist from Gothenburg: Martin & Co. -------------------- This week i assembled the most gorgeous machined Aluminium Bearing Housings Made by Alexcnc from the MMX Team. They are adjustable for the Depthing of the gears. We are also implementing the new PBS - Product Breakdown System for the Whole MMX. Chris, the new project manager has introduced me to the sacred lands of Excel heaven and although there is a lot of initial work we have to do to make this function properly, the long term efficiency will improve a lot! We are taking the MMX from being a one off DIY maker project to being a scalable, fully fledged - ready to build for any competent group of people - machine. Its really great! Enjoy and have a great day!

Comments from Youtube

Wintergatan : THANK YOU! For 100M VIEWS :) I cant believe plywood gears are so popular. You all have great taste. And my humbleness has travelled into hiding somewhere far away apparently. Occupational hazard when you pass 100 MILLION VIEWS AAAAAAAAA (thank you, it means the world to me.)

tz : LYRICS: A hundred million viewers agree The marble machine is a thing to see Listen close you all, as the marbles go fall To play bass, percussion, melody...they're having a ball Wintergatan is the name of the band Martin Molin is the name of the man With the plan to build a wonderful Whimsical machine with 2000 marbles in all. It took over a year, a year and some months To craft all the gears, get bolts and some nuts And assemble them, and then to adjust So they don't fall apart and they hit the right notes. Then he set it up, and gave it a spin And the internet declared it a win: This source of joy, this overgrown toy We and our friends played again, again and again When I feel blue, no friends to be found I just click right here and turn up the sound Brighten up my day with musical bliss While the frolicking marbles bound right down to the ground A hundred million viewers agree The marble machine is a thing to see Marble marching band (2000 in all ) Hear their call... [BRAKEDOWN] When I'm blue, no friends to be found I just click right here and turn up the sound Brighten up my day with musical bliss While the frolicking marbles bound right down to the ground A hundred million viewers agree The marble machine is a thing to see Marble marching band (2000 in all ) Watch them fall.

AnalKarl der vierte : In another video he said that they spent 60 days filming it because the machine was never flawless... so he spent 60 days of his life spinning the crank at exactly the right speed while simultaniously pulling those levers like a madman.... if this is not dedication then I don't know what is.
