I saw this idea at the Dayton Ohio Artistry in Wood show a couple of weeks ago. My idea is to create 3 more in kit form to give as Christmas presents for grandsons. My hope is that they will be good father and son projects. Getting the curved piece under the ball flipper level enough to send the ball on the right path worried me. What I’ve discovered is that if it is close you can control the left/right flight path by where you hold down the flipper. Fourth photo shows those from the AIW show. The base of mine is 14” long but the show samples seem to have a longer base. The basket is 12.5” high, the ball has a 1” diameter with a 1.25” diameter on hoop hole, and the angle for the flipper is 11.25” long, .1” thick and 10 degrees.
