Decided to upgrade the gumball machine, So I went with a different kind of ball instead of the mason jar and added a shoot for the gumball to roll down, Also I decided to place different kinda pulls on them as well, just for different look…and instead of one piece stock for the body I used different kinds of wood to form the body…

Rebel, this is definitely something to display. Great job. Does the pull handle turn or pull to activate the gumball?

Very nice interesting mechanism’s, on these old machines they were and still are very popular with the kids today just make sure they brush their teeth after a good stint at the candy gobbling, muncheee ,crunchey, blowey bubbly, gum gum or what? Have fun, and nice project too.Alistair
