Introduction: Small Knex Wheel Lift

Hey there, this is the small knex wheel lift I used in my ball machine Dystopia underneath the white floor.

Step 1: The Base

First it's time to make the base

Step 2: Making Some Walls...

It's time to make some walls! :D
Pay closely attention on how the white rods are.

Step 3: Making Some More Wall Stuff...

Step 4: The Wheel and the Motor

You could use a other motor, you'd have to invent it then on your own.

Step 5: And Some More Walls...

Step 6: The Exit Track

Step 7: Did I Already Mention Walls?

Step 8: The Roof

Finally something different! The roof! :D
I show it you like this apart as it is this way possible to attach it all.

Step 9: Finishing It

You are almost done!
You just have to make sure that the exit floor is already somewhat tilted, what i show here is just that it works in this model, in a ball machine you have to make it tilt somehow different as otherwise the floor won't look good.

ey you should make a small balmachine with instructions with this lift,i'm getting tired of seeing everyone putting lifts on ibls instead of ball machine instructions,
BTW

I see you're still coming out with an Ible every week. :-P Nice lift, but you should have cleaned it up a bit (i.e. the open connectors). Lots of that stuff isn't even needed.

Of course i'm coming up with a ible each week :P Did you forget that you talked me into something that made me do it? xD

Haha, I didn't know I talked you into that.

author
Sorunome (author)Shadowman392012-05-05

You didn't directly do that, you just talked me into doing something different that gave me the idea of doing that ^^

I like it because the ball basically sits on the ground.
