I am in the middle of making one right now, but I think I like your design better.

Nice job!

Very nice! My dad used to make these as Christmas presents for people. He would use a small fish bowl instead of a jar.

Great Job!!

I used to do this with the middle school kids in shop class. HOwever we used old peanut butter jars. I let one kid bring in a mayo glass jar and it broke. After that it was all peanut butter plastic jars. Good job. Kids loved them when I was doing them too.

Hey Raymond, I have been trying to ticker with some different ideas on the gumball holder of mine own but just cant nail couple of things down, hoping you could help me. How to do you make the holder indent like that without spending to much time trying to sand it just right. Any help would be much appreciated.
By the way you Machine looks great,
