    Default Pachinko Hopper Shutoff via Blast Gate

    Ok, I finally have my Hopper with the self cleaning blast gate to shut off the flow of balls.
    This would allow me to open the front of the machine if it was in a cabinet.
    I've tested it and it doesn't jam at all. You would need to rig a way to slide the blast gate
    from the outside. That should be easy enough.
    I made a video of it in action.
    Hope you enjoy.

    Thanks it was a pain to get the funnel attached to the blast gate but it was well worth it.
    My wife's a keepr that's for sure!
    Now I have to make more of these for all my pachi's!
    Maybe I'll use the big Green one that can hold 2,000 balls!

    I have thought about using one of these in a cabinet before. I have yet to build a cabinet but I will probably include one in my design. It makes so much more sense to use one of these rather than building your own out of wood.

    100 machines and counting...
