Peter Matthews'

 

Endless Ball Chute

 

A modified version of the model from the French Meccano Magazine, April 1954, this model is guaranteed to entertain the public at exhibitions.

 

It is simple in construction and operation.  There are two towers, one for raising the balls and one for the descending chutes, connected by the top rail.  The balls descend down the chutes and drop out into mid-air to fall onto a solid hardwood base or solid block to bounce up into the basket to be returned to the top rail.

 

Designed, described and illustrated in IsoMec by Peter Matthews, the model is constructed, with the exception of the drive band, entirely from standard Meccano parts.
