Introduction: Knex Scissor Lift

Here is a instruction for a Lift I invented at my one.


Step 1: Gears

You'll make the Gears first.

Step 2: Handle


Now you'll make a handle

Step 3: This Up and Down Thing


Step 4: The Tower

Now you'll make the tower

Wha, it was years ago I made this and nobody ever used it in a ball machine, thanks! You just suddenly revived memories :P

cool! Can I use this in my ball machine i just started building? =D

author
Sorunome (author)albydesign2011-06-06

Yeah, of course, but please give credits! :)

author
albydesign (author)Sorunome2011-06-06

Sure, I will! =D

author
Sorunome (author)albydesign2011-06-06

Maybe you can make it faster by gearing it less down, I never tried out whether the motor is strong enough for that. :P

author
albydesign (author)Sorunome2011-06-06

Cool, thanks! I'll try that and tell you whether it works! =D

Sorunome (author)2011-01-04

thanks!

So cool!!! 5 stars! And nice job! I've seen this kind of principle used in the real world, but never thought of it for a ball machine lift. Good job-you've sparked my imagination...

author

Hy thanks! :)

Its fine, i mmight mod this, is that ok?

author

Yes, I have tried modding this so that the piston distance ammount went further, but I seem to be struggling on the positioning on part where the piston goes through to push the ;scissor' together

author
Sorunome (author)Michaelgoode2010-10-14

You'll just have to make this scissors thing higher, then everything goes higher. If it doesn't work you'll need more power so you'll have to make it with the gears (frome small to big). :)

Ok, im really struggling really hard, I had one attempt then had to go to bed :P

author

I Made a mistake, it was meant to say 'Im not really struggling that hard'

author
Sorunome (author)Michaelgoode2010-10-15

author
Sorunome (author)Michaelgoode2010-10-14

author
Michaelgoode (author)Sorunome2010-10-12

Starting this now :)

author
Sorunome (author)Michaelgoode2010-10-12

fine, but don't forget the thng all at the top, unless the ball doesn't get out. :)

author
Michaelgoode (author)Sorunome2010-10-10

Ok, i will do, (for both)

author
Michaelgoode (author)2010-10-08

This is ace, it would be asy to modify this so it goes the high like scissers, great job 5 * and subbed

author
Sorunome (author)Michaelgoode2010-10-09

thanks! :)

It's hard to derive how it works from the pictures, but it's like a scizor lift right?
I tried to make something like it before, but utterly failed at it, good job :)

author
Sorunome (author)floris2burn2010-09-30

What is "scizor"? (I'm german)

author
floris2burn (author)Sorunome2010-09-30

I'm sorry, English isn't my first language either.
The correct word is "a pair of scissors". In German it's "die Schere".
I was trying to refer this: scissor lift

author
Sorunome (author)floris2burn2010-09-30

Ah yah. That's it. And I know what scissors are. I lived once in america, but still was born in germany. :)

How have I forgotten to subscribe to you. I meant to do it when you showed cyclo. Whats wrong with me? :-S

author
Tornado96 (author)2010-09-28

That's a great idea! It only raises the ball one red rod. Do you think you could make it go a bit higher?

author
Sorunome (author)Tornado962010-09-29

You could, but it would need morte force, so it would go slower up and down.

author
Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2010-09-29

This is a great lift to put at the top f ball machines. I might use this on my ball machine. I might customize a bit but I will definately try to use it. Once again great job!
