    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.

    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. :-)

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

    Must... build... lift...
