I am making a Marble Machine for Maron, a son from a customer who visited my site. It has a spiral elevator in the center of the cube shaped marble machine. The spiral elevator is driven by a 24 volts motor underneath the funnel shaped bottom (near the wooden xylophone). The elevator brings marbles to the top to roll down via some paths with funnels, jump tracks, nail boards, tipover, switches, etc. I started building in April 2011, it’s finished now, but i must first do some testing and finetuning before delivery.
