#263 – 24″h X 18″w X 18″d – TWO tracks – Semi-automatic ball release

This tall desktop rolling ball sculpture has an automatic ball release. Fill the queue at the top with balls and release one or a couple. When they reach the bottom, they press a handle that will release another ball by itself. This one has a terrific loop d’ loop that curves around the frame to give it a unique look. Some great sections of track loop around the frame leading into a tipping arm. The tipping arm is fun to watch and also serves to separate the balls for the horizontal zig-zag. If the balls are too close together when entering that section, they will get stuck – so separating them is very important. The balls exiting the loops hit a stationary ball and exchange places, a super fun element to watch. With a carrying handle at the top this one is easily portable for any location.

100% stainless steel, TIG welded.
