Does anyone have a photo or diagram on how the top left launch wire gate should look on Time Machine? I believe it should be a one way gate that rebounds a launched ball but mine just rotated allowing the ball to go through. Trying to determine if I have a part missing, broken or not installed properly. Thanks!

your gate wire is broken missing the angle on the left side that keeps it from going too far the other way. You can see what direction it laid by the mark on the gate.

I had a similar issue on my space station, and you can make a new one yourself with piano wire and a pair of needle nose.

Here's a picture from Marco:

Thank you! I “hate” when my iPhone auto corrects. Much appreciated!

I would double check, that doesn't look like the right wire. The dimensions are off in the description as well. I can take a pic of mine later, but I think the wire on yours is correct, and Marco's part number isn't right for that gate.

A photo would help, doesn’t appear to be broken but the pall passes right through and I’m sure it didn’t used to. Thanks
