i have been fascinated by how this lift is made and i hope you are too. pics i used from cubemaster53's inverter lift instructable.heres the link to his instructable right here

Step 5: Knex Chain Lift

i find this lift to be the most commonly used lift on this site it consists of knex chain pieces put together with a holder and ejecter put on it so that it can be used as such. need i say more? pics courtesy of cfcubed. these are by far the very simplest to make if you have enough chain

    bad guide the of shadowman are better

    These are by far not all of them, I'm busy making a guide that has 13 lifts

    S*** why does everyone have the same ideas as I have, how many lifts does your instructable have

    S*** that's even more than my guide, does yours have any lifts nobody knows about?

    Yeah, and there will be more when Cataclysm is finished. I'm planning 2-3 new lifts for that.

    Ok, I won't finish my own instructable, It's not even that far yet

    I actually started making/planning it around when I built Wipe Out. It has all of my lifts, plus I need to ask other people's permission to post their lifts.
