Cataclysm Ball Machine Update 2 Answered

Picture of

Hey everyone, here's an update video and pictures of Cataclysm. I finished the ball launcher, added the wheel lift, and built the chain path lift. The video doesn't show the arm lift working because I took the batteries out of the motor to prevent corrosion. The ball launcher doesn't send the ball all the way up half the time, so I'm going to have to redo the track coming out of it. I also need to add a gate at the bottom of the arm. Click here for more pictures!

Video: don't forget to watch it in HD!



Enjoy!

Instead of rebuilding the ball launcher lift, why don't you just add a second launcher halfway up? I saw two on your table in your video of wipeout?

Also, I am building a new ball machine using an enlarged version of you small wheel lift in this update. I also am planning to use the ball launcher lift when i can get my hands on a few of them. do you now where I can get them cheap? BTW, i also commented you on Wipeout. please respond.
