lol i love that comment. if u like slow lifts, then ull love my next creation. i would wager at about 60 seconds to get from bottom to top.
i would make them faster, but the motors i use are not strong enought for the immense loads i make them lift (that huge arm + ball) so i have to decrease speed for more raw power.

Cool!! subscribed!

thanks. in my new ball machine i got a whole bunch of gears and belts, powered by one motor. the one motor drives a restraining system (to limit the number of ball that go through a certain point) and a rottating arm (not big, only one red rod long). It should be completed sometime in the week
