I am looking for plans for a wood gumball machine to make with my 8th graders. Anyone have any advice? I am looking at this one right now, but was just looking for some options. Thanks, Curse

I was discussing that one w/ a student 5min. ago

I have a simple pattern I can email you. I suggest using peanut butter jars, they don't break, and they are easier to fasten the lids down than metal jar rings.

I currently construct gumball machines with my 6th graders. I purchase a 12' 4x4 cedar post from Menards, then cut it into 6" long pieces. The students then turn the top of their board on the lathe and add a design halfway down the block. We then drill a drop hole down the top, a 1 1/8" hole on the front in the middle for a 1" dowel that will be a knob. Then we use a jig on the drill press to drill an angle hole for the gumball to roll out near the bottom. From there we attach a cannning band to attach a plastic mayo jar on the top and drill a hole to catch the gumball in the knob and attach that with one screw from the back. Cheap, fast, and easy project that even 6th graders can do.
