Thank you, and I will be looking at some more videos by the Marble Machine Guy.
The machine looks to be completely mechanical and I appreciated the explanation that included mentioning that some of the actuators on the wheel have larger sizes and longer lead in times because they are ringing larger chimes.
And using a muzzle loading cannon barrel as a counter weight was neat.
