for the lever class of all 3 , can i use that action as part of the final action? like the levers will lift the platform and that will count as two actions?

I don’t see why you’d choose to do that, considering the final platform is expected to be lifted using electricity while the levers cannot

Since the lever system task powers the scissors lift by lifting a lever inside the scissors lift, is the lever system task technically the final action or still a scorable action itself?

It could be the final action or the scorable action, but you can only use it as one, and make it clear on your ASL which one it is.

or you could say that the lever arm powers scissor lift in step n-1 of asl, and say scissor lift raises platform in step n.

Thought question: Does a standard mousetrap contain all three classes of levers?

What is an a la Compound Machine? Could someone attach a drawing of one? Also, are you allowed to use strings to make levers move or do they have to have contact with each other?

I use strings to make my levers move and I have not had a problem with the judges.

When it says to use all 3 classes of levers in sequence to initiate the next action, does in sequence mean directly back to back or could I have non scorable actions in between? For example, could I have a ball triggered with the first class lever and then could the ball activate the second class lever?
