When I first watched this great video and saw how Steve turned the knob to dispense candy out I was curious to make one myself but was really concerned about possibly a piece or two getting smashed while rotating the hopper. Then again a closer look into the design I noticed that the top part was Merely a Mortal style trick where he rounded the top part so this might not be an issue. I would like to try this but would not want this to happen, with mine! say the least!!

Mr. Ramsey aka “inMarin” lol… just for kicks ….. Was this an issue in construction of your dispenser?
