+TwistedCube Posted May 1, 2019 Share Posted May 1, 2019 I am going to be starting a gadget cache series pretty soon, and one of them I am attempting to create is a birdhouse gadget containing a pipe designed like an uncomplicated labyrinth with only a few turns in direction against the front of the inside wall. The cachers won't be able to see the pipe when they approach the cache or when the open it, as it will be sandwiched between two walls in the birdhouse. They will however see the birdhouse with arrows written on the front tracing the direction of the pipe and holes drilled into the wood at each switch in direction. There will be a marble at the bottom of the pipe. The cacher must use long rods to push the marble through the pipe vertically and horizontally via the holes and eventually trigger a latch which opens up the birdhouse. What kind of latch should be used so that a marble being pushed with a rod can trigger it and unlock the roof section of the birdhouse, which opens like a typical door but in a vertical direction?
