I have a judge Dredd and the crane does not always pick up the ball. The magnet works and is aligned to the deadworld ring.

I was wondering if I have an issue with the height of the crane. I have attached some photos as I feel if it was closer it would pick up the ball every time.

Any feedback would be welcomed.

Going by the photos on IPDB, it does look like you have a bit of gap there.

Another possibility is the balls you are using. I know that certain balls are more magnetic than others.

There is an adjustment for the height of the crane, in the back of the crane there is a post with an acorn nut on top and a locking nut below it. Loosen the locking nut , turn top acorn to raise or lower the height.
