YSL's 6-way Ball Separator

YSL's 6-way Ball Separator
--> View Instruction

This instructions page will show you how to build my 6-way ball separator. The ball separator consists of a manifold, 3 blue rods deep by 4 blue rods wide by 5 blue rods tall, which rotates back and forth as it separates balls evenly between 6 outputs. While this design certainly isn't the most space-efficient method of separating balls, it does provide a nice visual element as it pendulates back and forth. This ball separator was designed and tested with standard red/yellow K'nex balls, so I cannot tell whether this will or won't work with the oversized/underweight balls from the Big Air Ball Tower. If you want to see if this will fit your machine before building it, mounting instructions are located in Step 6.

Has anyone made a 8 way ball seperator that uses no motors?    I love that this one just uses gravity.
