Introduction: Seesaw- a K'nex Ball Machine Element

About: I like to build with K'nex and Lego.

Many ball machine builders (including me!) use the same basic idea of an element I call a Seesaw. For this element, a ball rolls back and forth on the curved track until it stops. Then the dumper releases the ball. Here is my version of that element. Below is the parts list.
