My new Pacman Coin Pusher, from scratch

Post by venumx »

Hello, my name is Verdonck Toby (Dutch)
And since my 14-15 years I have been interested in building a coin pusher, but I didn't succeed - it was too big, it wouldn't fit through the door :) but hey, I was a kid back then. :)
Now I am 30 and I completed my Pacman Coin Pusher (proud).
On board it has, sounds, coin-hopper, playfield with bonus feature, coin changer for 1€.
I hope u guys like it :)
My small build log is here -> http://users.telenet.be/venumx
(don't kill me about the build log... it's my first ever).



I did almost 6 weeks over this build (after work). I spent almost 600€ (without coins)

Please guys, I'm dying here :HaHa: tell me what u guys think. !!>*<!!

Thanks to everybody who wants to take a look :)

Well done and welcome to Pennymachines.co.uk

Great job, the most common thing about home made pushers is that they usually couldn't be operated in a real arcade as they'd get emptied very quickly but this one has lock out and tilt and has a high % return so it looks interesting to play and looks good too.

One question I'd love the answer to is how do operators keep those high value notes floating on top of the coins without them ever moving .......is it as basic as sellotape !PUZZLED!

The answer is Simple , because of the low weight of a bank note, the coins Just move below It :) tested It myself ,
Thans To everybody the had feedback on my pusher , really makes It Worth While :)

Well it was worth the 15 year wait!! What an amazing machine. I can`t believe it only took 6 weeks to build! It is far far better than any other "Homemade " pusher I`ve ever seen and way better than some Manufactured ones! You must be really pleased to say the least. Far beyod most peoples capabilities. !WORSHIPFULL! !WORSHIPFULL! !WORSHIPFULL! .:*+*:. !!MEXWAVE!!
