Here's the first Instructables update on my new ball machine. So far there are 4 lifts, and 5 working paths. It features 2 new elements by me, the large helix and the inverted loop.

    Holy cow batman this looks wicked! Can't wait to see it all done!

    Nice ball machine, you've done a great job so far! :D
    I'm looking forward to seeing the completed machine :)
