This is Another CAD in 23 Days(yikes). I could only work on this in my free time and I think this turned out nicely.

How do the balls get in the holder?

The balls fall out the trapdoor in the back into the hoarder.

how does the trapdoor work? would it be ratcheted off of the indexer?

3 Likes

It’s racheted to the indexer and uses a winch to pull the trapdoor inward.

The only thing that I see being an issue is those flat rollers may have difficulty descoring the centre tower. That’s why some have theirs angled inwards, so it can descore after being pushed aside by the PVC piping.

Otherwise, I love it. The indexer set up looks really clean and I love the trapdoor. Best of luck!

You can’t see it very well but it is in fact on a screw join on the linear slide that allows it to swivel inward and outward just enough to descore easily.

Will that put enough tension on the ball to pull it out?

My rubber bands say yes :smile:

All the power to you. If it works, then it works. Personally I like that style better because of its simplicity in build, so if it works then it works.

Just keep in mind, we had too many rubber bands on our rollers last year, and while we could intake 10, both of our arms nearly snapped in half. The metal cracked and even ripped on both sides.
