Introduction: Connected Arm Lift, a Knex Ball Machine Lift
I present to you the second new lift from my ball machine Euphoria. The first one is here.
The Connected Arm Lift is in my opinion a cool looking lift, with a pretty low piece count.
It works very good, I've never seen a ball fall of the lift.
If you build this lift, read every image note!
I hope you like it and have much fun with building!

Step 2: Entrance
We will start building the entrance. Here the balls can enter the first arm.
Step 3: Motor Section
Here we will build the motor section. It contains the motor, the gears and the axle.
Always slide the switch of the motor to the left.
Step 4: Frame
This is the most boring part from the lift... But it's also very necessary so just build it!
Step 5: Exit
The exit. Here leave the balls the last arm.
Step 6: Arms
Now we will build the four arms. They pass the ball to eachother so it can get from the entrance to the exit.
Step 7: Arm Connections
This is the last part from the lift. They connect the arms and the cranks.
Step 8: Finished!
Yay! The Connected Arm Lift is complete!
Thanks for building my lift or watching the ible only.
When you've built the lift send me a photo, then I can add it to this step!
I hope you liked it!
