PRODUCT ITEM

INFORMATION



On the ocean
OS-11

 

 

A ship floating on the ocean. I put a steel ball in this mechanism. This steel ball will roll around inside and when it stops at the right point the open will box. It has to be tilted like a ship being carried and maneuvered on the water. This has a high level of difficulty to open. Please maneuver the steel ball carefully as you try to open it.
Do not put this work in or near water.
