    I can't feel right about making machines and selling them because the original idea was not mine.  Pellet Rolling Thread ~~ Part 5

    Harry in Oz 'stralia came up with the idea as far as I know.  It was quite a while ago and others have said they saw it before I first saw it on the old GTA forums many years ago.  I am not interested in being part of that debate.

    To build this table you will need a sheet of glass 5mm thick or better still a sheet of Lexan 5.5 mm thick.  You can get that on Ebay HERE

    The design is specific to that particular thickness 5.5mm give or take a bit.  I am sure a thick epoxy could fix a mismatch if it came to substituting something thinner than 5.5 mm.  You can not use a plate thicker than that.

    Questions will be answered here and/or in PMs.  Anything you ask in private is likely to wind up here as well.

    Below each image is the STL file for that image so that you can print the part if you wish.

     

    The next two pieces snap together to form a mechanical pellet release and a hinge.

    The slope of the table is very important.  You will need these 4 feet.  They are sized to work with the catch box height as well.  Get yourself some small rubber feet at the hardware and stick them on these.  There are 4 feet.  The table SLOPES IN TWO DIRECTIONS, right to left and back to front.  You will observe that no two legs are the same height.  Before you glue them to your table make sure you understand how to lay them out.

    That's all you need but the video.  I will probably get to that sometime before Sunday.  Suggestions for improvement will always be entertained.

    Outstanding!

    with a few folks using this setup, some consistency/commonality can occur then we can start getting some apples to apples comparisons…..

    I should add here that I have added some coins glued on the edge of the release to cause it to drop cleanly on it's own weight.  This gives a cleaner release.
