    Hi guys,Finally finished mine - very happy with it. Few tips:1. Do NOT get those cheap slingshot balls - I got them from AlieExpress - although they state they are 11mm - they vary with diameter and weight. I suggest a good quality ball bearings will be a good idea.2. If I have to do it again - I would start with parts 2 (the moving parts) - the other parts will have to match these ones - so do them first - this will save you re-positioning time of the other parts. 3. Build the Big wheel assembly before you do the trays that take the balls from part C - this will set the height of the lowest point (where the wheel grabs the wall) then you can plan your slant up to part C. 4. Took me some time to understand where the other 2 wee bearings go on the wheel assembly - since the BOM for this ...

Took me some time to understand where the other 2 wee bearings go on the wheel assembly - since the BOM for this stage say 4 bearings but actually show 2. So put the thrust bearing first - then put the 2 small ones inside the hole of the thrust bearing and then the screw to join them all. 5. Did not understand how the small cogs connects to the screw - so I did my own version - did put a disk under the cog. See picture attached.

    Hi - Thank you for this beautiful project. I am doing one too. You state 10mm bolts for the support legs (part 3D) - however none is mentioned on your BOM.
