Vending Machine Build

Hello guys, Here's one for you. I'm looking at building a small wall mounted vending machine that would vend mints out of it in the packets. I'm looking at building this from scratch. I'm not sure how to make a mechanism for this. I want something where you put in some money and then maybe twist or ...

Allwin Machine

I have been building this on and off for around 7 months now its just about ready now so I thought I would share it with you. There is no payout system for this if you land the ball in the top ball traps you get a free go otherwise in the trap below these you have to insert 10p to start again. Its m...

Re: Beachcomber build

This is great and the diagram makes much sense. I think this is definitely doable but it will need to be calculated exactly like you say, but this is the best answer I have seen. I'll get working on a prototype for this.

Re: Beachcomber build

I'm still trying to work on it. I have found out there is a pin that goes right through that holds the penny. Just have to work out how the flap works.

Re: Beachcomber build

I have seen the video of the beachcomber machine at play. If I could just get a picture of behind the glass that would solve the mystery. :)

Re: Beachcomber build

This is true - thinking about it it's funny, I just can't work out what stops the front flapper from falling until the single coin hits the back flap.

Re: Beachcomber build

Thanks for your reply. I think you are right, these are very rare and I am finding it difficult to get any information, so any info would be great. Thanks for clearing up the triangle shape things on the back. The bit confusing me is how the coins at the front stay where they do and then get release...

Beachcomber build

Hi everyone,
I'm looking at building a Beachcomber machine. I can't find much information or pictures about these machines from the few pics I have found. I think I may have figured the mech out - not sure yet. If anyone knows how it works, or has a picture, it would be great, thanks.
