Cool lift... I'm going to build this lift.. maybe even 2 of them.. one right handed and one left handed.. but I doubt that it would work for me ... I don't have a steel file cabinet to bounce my balls off of..

Can you make this lift higher? provided that there is more torque for the motor.

author
dickheijboer made it!(author)2013-10-21

Of coarse you can, the motor is strong enough, I think. But than you have to make another crank. One crank for two arms.

Great lift! Arms look chaotic, but always go to the right place...nice on the synchronization. :-)

author
dickheijboer made it!(author)2013-10-21

Thanks man, yes the synchronization with the chain is the most difficult part..

Really nice lift!

Great! I really like how the arms move in different ways and they are not running at the same speed. Again, very cool design. Hope to see more from you! :D

author
dickheijboer made it!(author)2013-10-06

Thanks! But they run at the same speed!

author
sandroknexmaster made it!(author)2013-10-04

Looks good! Reminds me of the multiple arm lift.

author
dickheijboer made it!(author)2013-10-05

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IF4ZdzzzVs You mean this? Never seen before but the system is the same, but the mine has 2 cranks and 4 arms. :)

author
sandroknexmaster made it!(author)2013-10-05

This is a nice concept! I'm assuming it'll be in your next ball machine? :-)

author
