Marble Run With 15,000 Tiny Marbles!

Recommended Posts

I do love itty bitty clearies. I got some in my Christmas stocking when I was 12.

I probably like the bigger marbles for running on a marble machine. I guess I like control. The little ones are like swarms of insects. Crazy. Where is this one set up?

I want to play with 15,000 marbles!

Tried to find them at the Glass-Sphere site but I'm not looking in the right place.

Hi Steph,

their site seems to be http://www.glass-sphere.com/en/eshop.html

and the 4mm (~ 0.16") ones you find "Colour glass balls and small balls" => "Colour small balls" http://www.glass-sphere.com/en/eshop/barevne-kulicky.html

Also there is a 4mm spread hiding here: http://www.glass-sphere.com/en/eshop/kulicky-pro-technicke-a-dekoracni-ucely-10-mm-40-mm.html

If you choose the 1mm (~ 1/25") balls you might get the 15,000 into a match box.

Check out also their "Glas playing marbles" http://www.glass-sphere.com/en/eshop/sklenene-kulicky-na-hrani

What impresses me most is that there are also the precision glas balls available. Even leaded glas with higher density. I think I will try the 16mm (~ 5/8") precision ones to see if my marble run performs better with those. Currently I have always to deal with the inconvenient imperfections of the chinese or mexican toy marbles and to sort out lots of them. Looking through the shop I just noticed a kind of marbles HABA sold with their marble run sets...

I have some of these precision marbles, they rolls somewhat faster on my marble runs, however, one of my "precision" marbles wasn't round at all, it has a large flattening. So it was a waste of my money...
