Keeping up with Rockbuster and Bob Wemm is near impossible at the rate they both put projects out. Don Rockbuster inspired Bob and I I was trailing be This is a candy dispenser that my dad and I made years ago.

Made it same way as orginal plan except used a knob instead of brass rod. Made out of maple n walnut.

I designed this project back in November and built it a couple of months later in woodshop class. Of course, I was unable to take pictures of the project while I was building it no cameras are This unique and ingenious item was discovered at an estate sale.

The man that made it was very talented with his hands and created many useful pieces. Notice also the position of the black limiting pin for the "A" slider. The travel of the "A" slider is just a tiny bit more than the diameter of the coin. In the second graphic the direction of travel has been reversed.

The hole for the gumball shows a blue color to indicate the gumball has fallen down the channel. The coin is no longer visible and has fallen into the coin box. The limiting pin is now in the position to keep the "A" slider from moving any farther into the machine. The wire red is firmly pulling the "B" slider backward in tandem with the "A" slider. The third graphic shows what happens if someone tries to get a gumball without inserting a coin.

The "A" slider has moved inward as far as it can go. The Limit Pin is against the shoulder of the "A" slider. The wire red is loose and does not push on the "B" slider. The green gumball remains unmoved. Choose a glass jar about one quart in size. It should have a good sturdy metal lid. A one-piece metal lid would be preferred, but a two-piece lid from a standard home canning jar could work.

Make a hole in the center of the lid large enough to pass a gumball. Chisel by hand or turn the wooden disc on a lathe so one surface forms a cone like a funnel to help feed the gumballs into the gumball machine.

Make a hole in the center of the wooden disc to match the hole in the metal lid. Set the jar and the disc aside for now. The photo is from Bing Images.

Begin by cutting a piece of Masonite the size of the machine's base. The hole is for the gumballs to fall down into a channel so they can roll to a cup on the side of the machine. The slot is for the coin to fall down into a coin box. Notice that both are closer to the back edge of the machine than the front. It is impossible to give exact dimenions because those will depend on the gumballs and the coin you use. The red arrow indicates the width of sliders "A" and "B" from step 1.

Add two pieces of hardwood to the Masonite piece and glue them in place. Their thickness should be equal to the thickest part of "B" in step 1, which is the diameter of the gumballs. If you remember the description of how the mechanism works from step 1, "A" was only the thickness of the coin used. If the coin is smaller in diameter than the gumball, a spacer needs to be Wood Projects Gumball Machine Review added.

The red arrow indicates the diameter of the coin. When the slider mechanism is fully pulled back ready for another coin, the step on part "B" will rest against the part of the spacer nearest the hole for the gumball. A flat spring or part of a common safety pin could be added so it presses lightly against the "B" slider to guarantee that it does not move due to gravity, if the machine is tipped.

Make and fit the moving parts. The position of the holes for "E" in each piece is not critical. What is critical is the bends in the wire "F. The width of "G" is a little more than the diameter of the coin plus the thickness of the pin. Place the moving parts into the assembly prepared for them in steps 4 through 6.

Cut another piece of Masonite to fit over the assembly. With the moving parts pulled fully back as if ready to insert a coin before dispensing a gumball, mark the position of the coin slot and the gumball hole in "B" onto the top piece. Cut both. Attach the top piece with screws. Position the jar lid and the wooden disc so both align with the gumball hole.

Drill and screw so the screws go into the solid pieces of wood on either side of the moving parts. Add a knob to the outer end of the "A" slider.

Add a skirt for a base to the assembly with the moving parts. The view is from the underside. The protrusion is the "A" slider fully retracted and ready for a coin to be inserted. The hole in the graphic is where the gumballs drop down. The channel that carries the gumballs can be made of almost anything. Miter the ends to fit and mark the location for a hole in the side of the machine. Drill the hole. Glue the channel in place.

Fashion a metal catch cup from sheet aluminum and use brads to fasten it to the side of the machine. Make and attach a removable bottom to the machine. This serves as a cover for the coin box. On my daughter's machine I put a screw eye on the back of the machine near the bottom edge of the machine. I cut a piece of Wood Projects Gumball Machine Video sheet metal a little longer than the bottom of the machine and bent the end upward like an "L" on each end.
