Introduction: Small Wheel Lift

About: Hi, my name is PatrIck, 13 years and i live in the uk. I am interested in knex. i also like photography (you wont see my best skill in these photos) i like curry and french fries.

This is a small wheel lift. Id like to give most the credit to Kairah for giving me the idea. Lets begin....

Step 1:

Now, The entry part, where the ball will go into the lift.

- do this.
- close up, notice the y connectors on each of the connectors.
- then, do this
- do this (seperate)
- then connect
- make these two
- connect like so
- connect to first bit
- other image
- add tubing, you will need to cut it

Put this aside.

Step 2: Wheels and Motor.

- do this
- side view
- make this 4 times
- and make this twice
- lastly, make this
- do this, any motor can be used
-

Step 3: Track for Ball to Go Up.

- do this
- add the bits you made earlier
- put the motor in the middle.
- other view
- put the two thinner wheels on either side of the motor
- put this wheel on the bottom of the track
- and the remaining wheel on the top
- connect the connectors using blue and green rods

Step 4: Connecting the Bottom Bit.

- connect using green rods

Step 5: Ball Exit.

- pretty simple

Step 6: Done

I will do my best to answer any questions. Thanks for looking!

    You should make a diagonal version of this. I don't have the gears for it, otherwise I would.

    Maybe that would allow chain to turn the wheels instead... Of course, that would still use gears.

    Do you mean gears, instead of wheels? Rubber bands and wheels could be used, but it may not be as strong.

    You can't upload videos directly to Instructables. You'll have to use something like Youtube for that.
