WOW! This is super piece effiecient!

how does it work

mathsboy314 (author)kittensare2013-01-31

Crankshafts turn rotational motion into up-and-down. This can also be seen in the stair lift, and network 2 of 'Tartarus' (a ball machine)

cool :D

i am using a rubber ball and i broke the red piece on step 5

mathsboy314 (author)angry sheep2012-05-09

Rubber iscreases friction, so it won't work.

Knex1235 (author)2011-12-25

do i need the pannel part or can i use a blue connector on step 3

mathsboy314 (author)Knex12352012-05-09

You must use the panel, that way the ball can get pushed off

angry sheep (author)2011-06-29

and not going under

angry sheep (author)2011-06-25

it wont let me.its just not working.

mathsboy314 (author)angry sheep2011-06-29

Is it going under the ball holder?
If yes, thenturn the blue rods of the base into red rods, and add a second panel to the ball holder.
I would've, but the lift before in my ball machine stuffed so I had to make it lower.
