Although I was able to find some suppliers for components, I was surprised to find very little in other builds – an occasional blog entry or brief YouTube video – and even less in any focused community discussion group. The closest I was able to find for a discussion group was an occasional mention of coin pusher build in an forum like this.
Later as I started the design of my pusher I was troubled by the lack of a community dedicated to such builds. So much so that I decided to create one - DIY Coin Pusher Builds is a Facebook group dedicated to the sharing and discussion of coin pusher builds. Currently there is only a handful of members and I am trying to promote and grow the group. It is open to pretty much any type of build from a LEGO penny pusher to a full-size cabinet.
In no way is this an attempt to take away from this forum but, rather, provide a community which I found to be lacking. If there are such discussions groups already in existence, I would appreciate links and such so that I may get involved there also.
So, if anyone has done a coin pusher build, planning on doing one, or has a serious interest I invite you to join the group. DIY Coin Pusher Builds can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/2458682404228435/.
