These are instructions for one of my ball machine elements called Trick Flip-Flops. It looks like an element containing normal flip-flops. However, I call it Trick Flip-Flops because the flip-flops are weighted on one side and go back into place once triggered by a ball. Below is the parts list:


Green: 24

White: 16

Blue: 43

Yellow: 14

Red: 5


Dark Gray: 24

Red: 25

Purple: 34

Yellow: 17

Blue: 6


Grey Spacer: 8

Large Tire: 1
