Introduction: Jump Lift, a Knex Ball Machine Lift
This is the last of 4 new lifts all first seen in my knex ball machine Paradox.
It's a small lift that was used to lift the balls from the low white floor to the high white floor, but you can use it like you want.
You can make this lift stronger by adding more than 1 rubber band, and it also depends on wich rubber band you're using.
That's the reason why I didn't make an exit for this lift: The height and distance of the balls will be different for everyone.
If you build this lift, read every image note! It will help you a lot!
If you have any problems or questions, feel free to comment or PM me.
I hope you like it and have fun with building!
