    lol i love that comment. if u like slow lifts, then ull love my next creation. i would wager at about 60 seconds to get from bottom to top.
    i would make them faster, but the motors i use are not strong enought for the immense loads i make them lift (that huge arm + ball) so i have to decrease speed for more raw power.

    thanks. in my new ball machine i got a whole bunch of gears and belts, powered by one motor. the one motor drives a restraining system (to limit the number of ball that go through a certain point) and a rottating arm (not big, only one red rod long). It should be completed sometime in the week

    Yes, i have high school, but i have the easiest semester. i started a week ago, and if im not on the comp or at school or with friends i am knexing. an i finished today, so i should have a video up by tommorow.

    thanks. i am currently working on another ball machine, but construction has been halted due to lack of peices, so i gotta wait for my shioment of knex to come. should be about another 3 weeks before i post another vid.

    ahh, you noticed. Yes, that is were i got the idea, but you will notice that the system i use to get of the lift is diiferent than shadowman39's. and thanks

    if  you want to know how i made it, i just finished a instructable on how to do it.
