New way to Axle Load

I don't know about you guys, but I HATE axle loading. Just takes way too long. So I came up with another way. Takes a little practice, but it's 10x faster. Here's a video-

I found an even faster way. I posted it a while back but no one really seemed to care.

It uses counter-weights, and is the primary way I axle-load in DSL.
Any comments would be appreciated. :D

I use a method that's very similar, the only difference is that I attach the extender parallel to the baseplate, not perpendicular.

Oh I see. So you can attach items directly to the axle that way? Because this way you attach them to the motors and the axle is far away, then you switch them.

Pretty much, yeah. I was a bit confused when I saw your video actually. I always thought axle-loading kept the attachment point on the axle. Clearly I was mistaken.

Using the counter-weiht technique, the attachment point stays on the axle.
Any comments would be appreciated. :D

Chaining motors for easier axle loading? I've been using that for a while now...

And i think snapper loading is much harder... excepted in DSL, with a copal on a skirt hinge.

Haha Sage you JUST found out about this? I haven't axle loaded using axles probably over a year.

I thought you knew about this. :P
