Best sites with some instructions on how to make lifts?
Well I don’t know websites but there are lots of video’s on YouTube explaining lift types and their advantages. What do you want to make a lift for?
Tower take over. Videos are great but sometimes it is hard to see types of hardware. Of course trial and error is an option.
There is a common theme in vex of there being no instruction manuals for how to build things. People would rather teach underlying concepts than give a tutorial for full builds. Look up screw joints and look at ITZ reveals.
look up kepler electonics and also just lurk forums
