This will hang off the orange connectors.

Some parts that will sit on the side.

Step 5: Lift Entrance Track

This will sit on the outward scaffold, which holding the ball before entering the lift.

Step 6: Adding This

Put the previous 2 steps on the side of what built so far.

Step 7: Outward Scaffold Part 2

This bit will make sure the element drops down far enough.

Step 8: Arm

There are 2 'hands' in the arm, one for the element and one for the lift.

Step 9: Further Scaffold

This scaffold will hold the entrance track for the element and the exit track for the lift.
