DJ Radio (author)chopstx2009-11-01

I think 4.  Round 3 should have 6 people moving on, round 4 has 3 people moving on, and the end of round 4 is what determines the winner.

I cannot build a ball machine lift as I lack a motor and chain

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user

You don't need chain, and you can make it use a crank.

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user

also I have no track or balls, and it says it must be automatic

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user

All you need to make is a LIFT, you don't have to make a full ball machine.

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user

for the ball
     -use a golfball
     -wallball
     -tennisball
For the lift
     - drill
     -a crank
     -an old rc car motor

There are many backup things you can use so please try to build it using something alternative
