    That's why you have a slot or hole in the bottom of the extended hopper and not the full weight of the balls on the machines hopper.

    the plan was to rest it (and fasten) partially on the wooden frame part on top.
    Hopefully that keeps the weight off the plastic part

    It's as much the weight of the balls on the hopper. Normally it's barely kept half full in the parlors.

    I can't help on ideas to make hopper bigger, but I do know this, the bigger the hopper on top, the more balls you need to own to be able to fill them

    is the bottom sloped at all like a funnel?

    I always wondered how parlors rotated the losing balls, does each machine have a lifter, or is there just a large area where balls are stored and rotated when a machine fevers? It would be cool to see a TV show on how it works for parlors in Japan

    This will give you some idea how it works. The majority of the balls are kept in the base, then lifted as needed to keep weight low, also means framework doesn't have to be so heavy duty. Also has cross aisle lifters/rails if an aisle runs low.

    Thanks for posting compirate, that's pretty awesome, maybe thats why machine volume so loud, it hides the movement of balls above you

    Just wanted to post some additional pics of what is being "created". As always feedback/thoughts appreciated!

    Geoff is working with Pachinkoboy as well to come up with new ideas! More photos (and a prototype) to come! First prototype was too thick! So its a balance between form and function~
