Here are the instructions for the Shadow Separator, first seen in my knex ball machine Paradox.
This is the last part from Paradox, now the instructions for all the new elements/lifts/separators are online.
The Shadow Separator is a complex, piece consuming separator with a self-resetting mechanism.
If you don't want to spend too many pieces to a separator, I suggest that you just watch and don't build (It would still be nice if you did so :D), if you have some pieces left and don't mind using them in a separator, this is the perfect instructable for you!
About the name... I'm sure you're wondering why this is called the Shadow Separator.
I did not invent the self-resetting mechanism myself, it is Shadowman39's invention (You can find the original instructions here).
So a lot of credit goes to him, without his mechanism this separator wouldn't exist.
And to give even more credit (and because it sounds awesome :D), I called it the Shadow Separator.
I hope you like this separator, tell me what you think about it in the comments.
If you build this separator, please read every image note. They will help you a lot!
A problem? Questions? Feel free to comment or PM me.
Thanks for watching / building!
