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 pull something and your mints will come out. I look forward to your ideas. Thanks in advance everyone.

Hi Kingchristo,
You may find some inspiration in this thread, which includes close ups of several mechanisms, including mint vendors: Missing allwin vending mechanisms.

Hi if you PM me your email address I can send you some pictures of vending mechs. I have over a hundred machines some with very complex ways of working others with very crude ways.

You can make many mechs by manual use or motorised, as I did when I was 7 years old from Lego. Endless ways to vend sweets. It just needs thinking about. You would not believe what I used in the past. Not always perfect, but they did work.
