Oh I like that. Great job. The only change I would make is one jar for M & M’s and the other for jelly beans!!

Very nice ! I always wanted to make one of those. Never had enough M and M’s. I know I wouldn’t have enough to eat and fill up the dispenser. You did a GREAT job on this one.!!!

Really great job, Tony. Congrats on the Top Three.
There wouldn’t be rubber bands in mine either. With only 5 M&Ms per pull, I’d wear ‘em out the first day.

Evidently I am in the backwater part of Ohio. All I’ve ever seen are one holer’s. Nice job, anything that provides M&Ms is a win win. Thanks for sharing.

Oh Yeah! I’ve got to make one of these for my Grandsons. Their folks will hate me for it! It’s so going to be worth it.

Thanks Tony. That’s an awesome project! A very proper Top #3 if ever I saw one!

Nice job GR8... Everyone tell me I’m no sweetie so I’ll see if I can make a chilli dispenser.

Thanks Tony, Tony… (no… no stutter… both Tonys) for the “plans”.

Yes… it will dispense “Nederlandse drop” (Dutch licorice)...

Nice work, would need a much larger capacity storage unit for my wife. Otherwise we would be filling it up every few hours…
