Ball Machine Update (about time...)
Ok, I finally have some ideas for what to do on my ball machine. I am starting by building the most complex chain lift hill I have ever made. Modified from the dual-lift I created for Labyrinth, this mechanism also consists of 2 hills powered by 1 motor. This section of the ball machine will, assuming all goes as planned, be completely symmetrical, and center around my first bidirectional Ferris Wheel. The lift towers hang over the sides of the dresser here for added height, and the return track runs through the middle of the supports on the bottom.
The mechanism contains about 600 pieces and 34 gears.
