All parts precision laser cut from MDF and plywood. Includes carbon fibre support rods. Using a large geared wheel to lift the ball bearings to the top of the run the track splits into two. Half of the ball run down a zig zag track to be collected at the bottom, the others run around a looping track into an accumulator that stores the balls, releasing three at a time to race to the bottom. Motor unit, switch and battery connectors are all pre soldered for ease. An intricate marble run for those with a little more patience!
