Great toy project. It would be nice to have a full scale model to get me up the stairs at night!

Here’s a nice video of the marble elevator:

I’ve always wanted to build is one of these:

He’s also got a Rotapult and an Octapult, but I think this one is the most doable and does the trick. He actually replied to a few e-mails I sent him last Thanksgiving. I was bored at the in-laws and started drawing up plans. Very nice guy.

I was trying to design a version of this that would hang on the wall, you could plug it in and turn it on and let it go for a while. Hand cranking might also be an option. I would need a lot more spare time than I have in the forseeable future.
