So glad this is done!! The kids were trying to play with it in the process of working on it. No firm plans, just started building. The idea is was lifted from http://woodgears.ca/index.html. Lots of cool stuff there. Turn the crank in the upper right hand, and the marbles start moving. The #’s on the picture show how the marble’s “track”.

Nice marble machine. I really like woodgears too. Matthias really has some neat stuff on his web sight. Makes me wonder where he gets all the time to come up with his stuff

Matthias has time to work in his shop because he has no wife or kids.
