Step 46: The cup holds a string that holds a magnet that is released from the plane due to the force
Step 47: The released plane hits a string that pulls out a stop releasing a softball
Step 48: The softball lands in a bucket pulling down a lever
Step 49: The lever pulls down on a string that is attached to a pulley and then attached to a baseball helmet -pulling it up

Step 57: The wood plank pulls a rope holding a stop that releases a baseball
Step 58: The baseball rolls and hits a vertical lever whose opposite end is tied to a string
Step 59: The string pulls the release mechanism on the vice grips
Step 60: The Vice grip jaws holding a ball are released sending it down
Step 61: The ball lands on a spot on a lever forcing it down and raising the opposite side
