Introduction: Knex 'Mouse Wheel' Ball Machine Lift

 These are the instruction for my new and innovative ball machine lift, which is on Shadowman39's page on ball machine lifts. It uses an inverted wheel rim, with internal 'scoops' , which scoop up the ball as it enters at the bottom, then drops the ball into the path at the top, this has taken many hours of fine tuning, such as 4 different scoops! Well that's it!
