This is the second ball machine on this site. This is an even smaller machine than DEUX and hopefully more of you will build it. This machine has only ONE path and is easier still to build, though it still uses a lot of pieces. This also has a somewhat requested component, the Red Ball Drop.



So without further Pause, I present NANO!
