    Default pachinko ball management system

    Quick video of my setup.

    The first part shows the basic heavy cardboard top ball tray and feed system. It's stronger than it looks and holds about 4,000 spheres while the last one I made holds over 8,000 ( I only have it full while playing, I am not that brave)

    I use a simple ramp and funnel system from the back to a tub under the pachinko and the end of the video shows how I can empty it even when full of about 8,000 ball without hurting my back

    Nice set up, be sure to tell all don't pull out the blue tube without a tray under it

    Tell them if they do they will have to hand wash each one separately
