Marble Machine Kit #1
The world's first commercially available miniature hand-cranked marble machine with both lifter and track cut on a laser. The #1 kit is an easy to assemble marble machine that will look great on any desk,bookcase or on a plinth in the British Museum. Cranking for a few minutes daily is a great way to relieve stress and improve your fitness level (OK, the last claim might be a bit optimistic but isn't that what advertising is all about?). The motion is geared to effortlessly lift the 5mm steel balls to a dizzying height from where they will start their journey down the track at break-neck speed. If steel balls could speak I'm sure they would go: "Wheeeeeeee!!"
You can assemble it for right-handed or left-handed use. It works for both clockwise crankers and counter-clockwise crankers.
As with all out kits we don't supply printed instructions but make them available for download in PDF file format. The instructions for the marble machine can be found here:
MM #1 Instructions
To assemble the kit you will need glue. If you don't have any to hand, it can be ordered from the glue section:
The kit contains all parts needed to complete it as welll as a generous supply of steel balls (you WILL have some roll away and they are known for their floor crack seeking capabilities). The base is 70x70mm and the machine stands 120mm tall.

The kit contains small parts and is not suitable for children. Not recommended for people with a "tennis elbow" as enthusiastic cranking could worsen this condition.

PS: Please don't ask for the CAD drawing - this is my livelyhood and I cannot run the risk of having my designs used commercially by others.
