    Default Homemade upper ball tray 2.0

    I've replaced my temporary upper ball tray fix where I used a small white plastic "bin" with a metal bread baking pan. The plastic bin didn't hold enough balls and the balls didn't roll down to the ball track very well. The bread pan seems to be working quite well. Cut a hole in the bottom corner and screwed it on at a slight angle so the balls roll down the hole. It holds a load of balls. Someday I'm going to figure out how to reproduce the original hard plastic tray.

    I like the bread loaf tray. gives it character and looks like one of the older, metal mechanism machines

    Pachinkojeff, when I reposted this thread for Pachinkomaster...I noticed that your machine is a Maruhon. I modified a Nishijin Model B hopper that worked nicely.

It looks really good too!
