The Head Thrower! by Alexandros and Raphael

We, Alexandros and Raphael, worked on a complicated simple machine. We named it, “THE HEAD THROWER” because it ends up throwing a fake head in a bucket, so don’t be scared!
It is pretty small, but it took us more than 8 hours to build and it is a mixture of many simple machines. To build this machine we needed a lot of patience, because some times when we wanted to adjust something the whole thing fell and we had to start again from the beginning!
Have fun by watching the video of our head thrower!
We hope you like it!

Great job, boys! Very ingenious!
I think you might have started a new craze!
Can anyone identify any simple machines used here?
