You should put little numbers on the M&Ms and play the lotto!

Nice looking, fun little project.

I’ll be right over. I love M/Ms. You know this would be a great thing to have during the potty training stage. :)

That is way to cool. It must run like a pachinko machine. I love it. Thanks for sharing.
We used to have a teaching tool in quality assurance called a quincunx. It was for showing how the distribution of a process as you move the center point that dropped balls through pegs like that.
It looks like you turn that white tube to get them falling. right?

thanks to all. the dowel rod has one dimple in its center. It holds one ‘vitamine M’ (I like that). As you turn it, it picks one up and drops it down. the dowel slides side to side so you can drop it where you choose. I have a sketchup drawing which I will try to attach tomorrow. thanks to all, again.
