    that part on 5, is the white piece post to connect to the grey part or the red part?

    Crankshafts turn rotational motion into up-and-down. This can also be seen in the stair lift, and network 2 of 'Tartarus' (a ball machine)

    Is it going under the ball holder?
    If yes, thenturn the blue rods of the base into red rods, and add a second panel to the ball holder.
    I would've, but the lift before in my ball machine stuffed so I had to make it lower.
