Introduction: Sandro's Wheel Lift, a Knex Ball Machine Lift

Hi everyone!

This is the second of 2 lifts used in my ball machine Revolution.

I liked it very much and it works excellent, so here are the instructions.

You can always send me a question if necessary with a comment or PM.

I hope you like it and thanks for watching / building!

Great wheel lift :D I'll probably include this in my next ball machine! I'm planning on creating a few elements involving micro k'nex and k'nex bricks to add some variety :) Oh and btw, I have 2 NEW element instructions!! (Sorry to keep bugging you about my ibles but you are my 'k'nex idol' ) :D
