Introduction: Spinning Push Lift: a K'nex Ball Machine Lift

This is the second of a series of 3 new lifts on our k'nex ball machine Impossible.

This lift is pretty small, making it handy for those small spaces where you need to make the ball go up just a little bit. Now, I know you may be thinking, "that looks a lot like Sandroknexmaster's Sliding Arm Lift ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hahONKdTg-o)", but we actually made it before Elysium. You can see it in a few places in the preview video which was posted way before Elysium. This does not in any way mean that the Sliding Arm Lift isn't new! It was officially released before ours, which means his is just as new as ours. :)

Anyway, take a second to watch the video, and I'll check back with you at the next step. Oh, also, if you feel like putting a picture of your lift in a comment after you've made it, by all means, feel free to do so!

If you need help with anything, say, you can't figure out where something goes, or you're confused about something, then by all means, please ask for help! We're here for you. :)

Have fun building!
