My new knex lift Answered


I have told you guys that I was building a new lift well... The lift didn't work. I tried everything to get it fixed but it just didn't work. Here is how the lift works: A large arm rotates up and down from 0 dergrees to about 90 degrees by using a crank. The piont was: the motor wasn't strong enough to lift the whole arm. The second thing was that I didn't have enough pieces to make the tracks after it so I will build a smaller version which will probably does work and I will also post instructions for that.

Here is the parts list for if you want to know how many pieces the lift took up
