    Default A different style ball lifter

    Mandoman let me know about this lifter, unfortuatly just as the auction was ending. so listing really for reference and save the pictures.

    https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/u381572664

    Built on ball polishing cloth. Top mounted motor. Maybe a screw type lifter. Doesn't look tall enough to be same height as a machine, or its a really weird photo effect.

    Sold for 20,500 yen from a starting bid of 1

    25 bids 6 bidders

    So is that like a spiraly corkscrew type lifter??

    Maybe the springy tube reaches all the way up to the top hopper??

    That's the way I see it. Corkscrew reduces the weight the lifter has to move.
