how does it work
mathsboy314 (author)  kittensare1 year ago
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)

i am using a rubber ball and i broke the red piece on step 5
mathsboy314 (author)  angry sheep1 year ago
Rubber iscreases friction, so it won't work.

do i need the pannel part or can i use a blue connector on step 3
mathsboy314 (author)  Knex12351 year ago
You must use the panel, that way the ball can get pushed off

and not going under
angry sheep2 years ago
it wont let me.its just not working.
mathsboy314 (author)  angry sheep2 years ago
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.
