Following on from the recent M & M Dispenser posts, Rockbuster and Woodshaver and myself had a bit of fun and tossed a few ideas around until finally the “Challenge” was laid down.
“OK Smart arse, make one”, so here it is.
It is constructed from building pine, with the centre part dyed. There is a little problem in that the centre should have been a bit higher, asw access to the tray is a bit restricted by the dispensing handles.
Hope you enjoy this bit of fun.
Thanks for looking and C & C welcome.

Bob.

Does look like a fun project Bob, and a great result. Did the other complete one or did they leave it to the smart arse. Should be more of these challenges, brings out the best in some. Well done and good to see you left some M&M’s to see.

Bob, and Bob, I think I have an idea for both of you. For you, Bob, the one with a penchant for making round things roll around, a marble machine. And for you, Bob, Who seem to enjoy making things that twist around on themselves, a marble machine.

They knew who had the talent to make one Bob, well done. Give me a clue please Mark, what is a marble machine? Is there one on the net? Found them, you must be joking Mark, even the plans have me bamboozled,
but will have to accept the challenge.

You aced it Bob! Nice work! I’m sure your next one will be a bit higher for better access to the good stuff!

Just goes to show you the one of us three that have the most time on their hands I’ll bet that both Tony and I agree on one thing, and that is that the Smart could be left off of the ?? I think that you should keep it short like it is Bob, the restriction will keep greedy fast hands from gobbling all of the goodies. You did a great job on this buddy, now Tony and I have to come up with another Challenge

Ok….I thought the candy machine was for the little ones so why would you need to get your big hands in there Bob? LOL!
Congratulation on you Daily Top Three Bob. You earned it buddy! As soon as the Florida heat is turned off I’ll be in the shop again giving your candy machine design a go!
Now stop eating all that candy Bob or you’ll get a belly ache.

That does look like a fun challenge and project .
Now the two other guys have an advantage with the hard work of design already done .
I wonder if Tony and Rockbuster eat all the candy and are too embarrassed to show their empty ones .LOL
Have fun guys !

Hey Kiefer, when I first posted my 4 single ones that I made, all 4 of them had M&M’s in them, but ask everyone else, Bob’s was empty. I’d be willing to bet, that he steals the candy bags from all of the little “Trick or Treaters”
