I just discovered that I don’t have a still image of the finished ball lifter. I captured one from the YouTube video.

This RBS ball lifter lifts steel balls or marbles to the start point of the rolling ball track. The track is still being built and isn’t far enough along to show yet. The ball lifter was designed with the Linkage program.

Here’s that still image that I wanted to post:


See this previous post to see a video of this thing in action. There are also earlier posts that describe some of the design process and how I used the Linkage program to do the design.
