How UGEARS MARBLE RUN STEPPED HOIST Works

A three-stage alternating lift sends the marbles back and forth as they travel upwards to begin their exciting journey. A three-marble accumulator is where the third marble to reach the top frees the other two marbles. This is where the unique trajectory of every marble truly begins. The marbles race down one of the thee tracks: the 1st one features a two-marble accumulator and serpentine run; the 2nd is a hammer swing contained in a C-shaped cradle, and the 3rd has a funnel (or whirlpool). Eventually all three get through the collection tray and then into the seesaw lift. Then the marbles are either sent back to the 3-stepped lift (by a rocker switch mechanism), or into an attached marble run set!

Each model from Ugears ‘Marble Run’ series can operate as a standalone, or be connected (laterally or frontally) to other Ugears marble runs (you can connect two or four models, in pairs, with the help of special connectors featured in the set). At the end of the run a rocker mechanism can direct marbles one way or the other (or in both directions – it depends on the weight attached), resulting in marbles returning to the original hoist or embarking on a different run. Adjoining marble runs create an amusingly intricate system of connected parts. A single crank brings the whole system to life.

As you assemble the model, you will learn about the interplay of driven gears and drive gears, as well as the function of counterweights. Set the machine in motion by turning the crank handle clockwise, and get mesmerized at the amazing symphony of the gears at work. The structural rigidity of the system is due to a sturdy base and tightened frame parts. A powerful gear drive powers both the main 3-stepped alternating lift and the auxiliary seesaw lift.

The Ugears box has everything you need, including pre-cut wooden boards, ten marbles, wax and sandpaper. Detailed, illustrated instructions in eleven languages will guide you through the process. The Marble Run Stepped Hoist features 355 pieces. It is rated “Advanced”, and has an 8-hour estimated assembly time. Each Ugears model comes with a several spare parts in case you break something. If a unique piece is damaged or broken, our customer service would be happy to ship a replacement part to you (free of charge)!

    Challenging, but fun

    This took a while to build, but it was worth it. The small pegs were challenging to get in the slots (as I have chubby fingers). I had difficulty getting the ball stopper at the end of the track to work properly. It worked best when only using one ball at a time.

    My first disappointment

    I would recommend this to a friend!
    This is the first time I was actually disappointed with the model. It lasted for just a few minutes and then started falling apart. Too many loose connections and too much mechanical movement IMO. By no means this will stop me from being ugears fan, but in this particular model the frame may need some more frame enforcement.
