This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Level 14 is "Four Balls", right? I got that one two different ways
make a two-sided conveyer belt: clockwise spinners on the bottom and ccw spinners along the top. Maybe connect some adjacent ones with "water rods", so that the balls don't fall/squirt through.
Make a catapult out of a cw spinner with some wooden extensions. Depending on the exact position of the spinner relative to the initial ramp, you may need to construct a ramp to the right of the catapult.
I had a really tough time with "The tube". Oy! The final solution looked simple, but getting it just perfect took maybe twenty tweaks of only a pixel or two.
For "Unpossible", I had to make three "cars". [ August 18, 2008: Message edited by: Ryan McGuire ]
Arghhhh!!! I am stuck at the level where you have to get this vertical bar underneith a wall. I can get it under, but am having problem straighting it out (back to vertical) on the other side of the wall.

So redo them and save 'em this time. You'll probably come up with many improvements the second time around. My second attempt at The Tube uses a triangle and two wheels and is much easier to construct than the usual single line.
