Difficult part because the two cranks have to work together.

Can you make this lift higher? provided that there is more torque for the motor.
dickheijboer (author)  hunter9996 months ago
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..

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

Thanks! But they run at the same speed!
