I wanted to make a gumball machine, so I made one on the weekend:
You turn the big gear and gumballs come out of the hole at the bottom. It’s made of 1/4" mdf sealed with beeswax to make it food-safe. The top is 1/4 acrylic.
I did make videos capturing the design phase. I’ll post them to my youTube channel once I have them edited.
As always, you can see more of my stuff on my blog at: http://polarbrainfreezethecut.blogspot.ca/
