    I had a little time this evening to continue my project.

    I cut a piece of wood the size of the inside width of my Pachinko cabinet then cut a slight taper out of it so that the balls would roll down to the gear.

    Then out with the trusty Dremel to sand out a semi circle for the gear to sit in.

    They say a picture is worth thousand words so here's a short video of it in action.

    YouTube - Monkeyboy's Pachinko Ball Lifter. Part 1

    Next I have to fasten the motor to the block of wood then somehow attach the up tube.

    Looking good! I like to see projects go from the ground up.

    Will this be for one Pachi or many?

    maybe use another thin board for a base to mount the motor and your grooved board.

    Just for one. I have two machines but there spaced far apart and separated by a dart board, so I don't think it would be possible to link them.

    If they're spaced apart and seperated by a dart board, you could totally link them..just get a little creative.

    I'd finish up the lifter first. Looks like you've got a good start...
