4-Bar Calculator

After making a rough model with some Lego mindstorm pieces, I found this awesome 4-Bar Flipper Calculator. I played around with it until I found some values I thought would work. This gave me a rough idea of how much torque I would need to lift a 1lb object.

Then I modeled the flipper in Blender to get a nice look at it in 3d.
