I’m new to this piggy bank thing. When I was growing up and wanted to raid my piggy I just got a butter knife and stabbed, shook and wiggled the money out of the slot. Now I am trying to make and sell piggy banks. One problem that has arisen is that I hve lost sales because no one knows how to get money out of a pig. Everyone seem to pickup a bank, flip it over and look for that one inch plug in the bottom, they then look at me and ask how do you get the money out ? After I explaine how I used to do it, they act insulted and leave.
Well back to my problem, I got all these piggy’s that ain’t got no plug ! Where do you buy those piggy bank stoppers, rubber plugs or what ever their called for the hole in the bottom of your piggy bank. I need several dozen to start.

That white plug is 7/8” dia. You Can get any size you want at National Artcraft. I bought 100 of 7/8 and 100 1” for $20 or so. I use a foster bit 1.25” to make stopper edge then bore out hole 7/8”. Fits perfect.
