On the next few pages are GIFF drawings of several Lifter designs. Once the action of the carriage is understood the different designs and methods present themselves. These animations aren't Disney quality, but they do give a good idea as to what one would see when looking at any Lifter design that one may come up with. The tilting action and the repositioning of the Carriage to each Fulcrum Point would be the central action and is the same for all. Next would be the mechanical assembly that would be used to tilt the Carriage either from below or above. Finally the mechanical process and the components used to capture the potential energy of the raised Object/Carriage.
