    In the description you can find links for instructions: new elements and new lift.
    Making instructions for the whole machine is not very easy, and it's already down for a long time.

    Amazing ball machine! I loved all the new elements and was fascinated with the z-shaped thingy that you added! Someday hopefully I'll make another ball machine that's larger than Rock of Prometheus!
