Knex Quarter Arm Lift Answered

My new lift is finished. It was already finished for quiet a long time but for some reason instructables was really slow at my comuter. The lift goes up and down from about 0 degrees to 90 degrees by using a crank which is powered by a motor. For the rest there is nothing special. I worked on it for about 2 weeks

Here is a video of it

Most of those pieces there are unnecessary. I think he was making sure it wouldn't break. I didn't use them in my version
