The Marble Run Chain Hoist not only a beautiful kinetic sculpture. It is an intricate toy that teaches as it entertains. This DIY wooden model run features a chain hoist powered by a hand crank. In addition, it is shown as a series of tracks, each with its own unique and fun obstacle or element.
Turn the handle clockwise to set the machine in motion. Then watch as the wooden chain hoist collects and lifts the marbles to the top of the machine. Here you can see a 3-way switch distributes them on different tracks. One marble plunges down a chute with a loop-the-loop at the bottom.
The next one tumbles down the various stages of the cascades. And three others are collected in the accumulator then released down one of three short tracks. All marbles pass through the common tray or collector before returning to the chain hoist. And now they can be lifted on their next journey.
The Marble Run Chain Hoist is modular. It can be connected to other Marble Run Chain Hoists. You can connect 2 or 4 models, in pairs using special connectors (included).
You can connect them in different ways. You can attach two Marble Run Chain Hoists together frontally. Or connect four together, both frontally and laterally, for a mini system of hoists and runs.
The Marble Run Chain Hoist has 400 pieces, is rated “Medium” level, and has an estimated assembly time of 7 hours. The model kit includes 10 glass marbles with a diameter of 16 mm (one of the most popular marble sizes).
