Marble machine
« on: November 03, 2012, 09:25:59 PM »
After a lot of trial and error I have finally come up with a kit for a marble machine:

You can see some of the test versions on my youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/epilotdk

Does anyone else here build marble machines?

I have one roughly two foot by three foot that I put together with what ever kind of junk that I had laying around.It has two lifts that are hand cranked,using steel balls of .484 inch diameter. At this point it is still a work in progress,as I seem to come up with other things that I want to try.

Once you see the bandwagon, it's too late.
