I'm working on a new design for this lift... Instead of the pushers being on the slider rods, I'm working on creating a cart that the pushers roll on. I think it will work with less friction and run smoother... pics soon, I hope.

cool lot of pieces though. :D

Awesome lift! Sadly, it doesn't work well with golf balls because they're too heavy. :(

do you need that motor

author
martijnb95 (author)Knex12352011-12-21

no you can use every knex motor that's powerfull enough. otherwise you need to gear it down.

Awesome! now all you need is a chute to send the ball back down to the original starting position, and you have a continuous loop!
