This section drives the chain lift. Remember to closely examine the spacers between the connectors. The motor shown here can be substituted for any K'...
This determines which path the ball will take.
This section provides extra base support and holds some of the elements on path one. Build the first part, then the second part, and attach both to th...
This part serves the same purpose as the former step, and holds the path two elements. Build what you see in the pictures and then attach to the main ...

These devices pick the balls in the queue up and lift them to the top of the machine.
Make three sets of 12 links and one set of 13 links. Attach these to the ball grabbers to make a complete chain. Then wrap around the gears as shown ...
