Ball machines that are quick to make
« on: November 02, 2017, 10:34:19 pm »
Occasionally my cousins (4yo and 8yo) come to visit and they want to build a ball machine with me. Usually they have to go home before we're done.
I was hoping someone could recommend a simple design that I could build with them in under two hours.

My design was one lift, two tracks, one element, and the whole thing was 3 red rods high. Maybe someone could also recommend the easiest lift and element to make?

Hmmm. I don't really know... Well here is the smallest elements and lifts that I can find on 'ibles: (this one is a little big) (wait nvm that one is yours.  :P)
That is all the small elements I could find, but there might be more.
There aren't many small lifts at all on 'ibles. There is the Spinning Push lift ( But that is kinda big. Another one is Jump lift ( but I have made that one and it doesn't lift high, but it throws the ball far.
Hope I helped!  :)
