    Is it possible to extend this lift higher?

    Seems pretty simple, but very effective and cool! Good job, and I hope to see this lift show up in one of your machines. :D

    A little jerky, but overall an ingenious design.

    I know it's already been said, but excellent variation on the Stepper Lift! ;-) Much better in my opinion as well, since the Stepper was practically useless for most ball machine builders (who use a red rod standard, as you mentioned). :-D It takes up less room and looks far more interesting in operation...good job!

    Nice lift, reminds me of the stepper lift :)

    Nice job! It's similar to the stepper lift, but it works less complex i think. Well done!
