    Thats a good point and somthing I have been thinking about. I just went to the shop and picked up the balls and was playing with this. There are a few ways to deal with timing and what will work is to simply adjust the limit switch at the bottom and buy some time by going a bit deeper than the tray.

    Another slicker but costly way would be to buy one of these microprocessors and program whatever pause lengths you want and perhaps make it more system responsive.

    Just to leave no stone unturned, I have one coming from Mexico

    Seems cool. Looks sorta like a Raspberry Pi.

    Another project board I have been watching is this one. UDOO: Android Linux Arduino in a tiny single-board computer by UDOO — Kickstarter Kinda cool how it combines Raspberry Pi with Arduino.

    I guarantee it will only be a matter of months before something big comes out and for a very reasonable price.

    100 machines and counting...

    I wanted to test the new motor and power supply on the old unit before I get started, here are a couple of vids. it is much quieter and I am guessing it would lift 30 lbs + at a time now The new unit will feature delrin guides on the side of the Baltic Birch car that slide in rabbits cut in maple uprights.

    I will also incorporate some extra saftey NC limit switches wired to the motors supply in both upper and lower positions. MVI1412 - YouTube lift - YouTube

    Again you inspire me to work on my ball lift! I'm stuck on the stuck ball problem. Very cool concept!
