4-way Path Seperator for Knex Ball Machines

Introduction: 4-way Path Seperator for Knex Ball Machines

Hey everyone! Some time ago I asked @shadowman39 if he had any instructions for his path seperator used in his amazing ballmachine 'Citadel'. He said he didn't, because the design wasn't reliable enough. I took it upon me to revisit his concept to try and make it better. I got it to work, so I featured it in my ballmachine 'Shadow'. Shadowman asked me if I wanted to make any instructions for it, so here they are! I hope you like it, and special thanks to Shadowman39!

    works incredibly well.
    It's heavy so I'll have to make some support adjustments but I'll figure it out.

    Thanks! Yes, the weight is a necessary factor to make it work haha!
    Do you have any videos of your project? :)
