    Default Nothing Fancy

    I built a couple of cabinets for two of my machines. Compared to some of the ones I have seen here they are very basic.

    Where did you buy those bins?

    Here by any chance? http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-PACHINKO...e#ht_665wt_932

    If you bought from that auction how is the quality on them?

    100 machines and counting...

    You can buy those same bins at Walmart. Same dimensions but with the name Rubbermaid on them. I have 2 of them and I think I paid $4 each.
    Mine are black, they also come in white.

    I did get them from ebay. Very high quality. If you use them to catch the balls in the back they work great. They fit perfectly and the balls do not bounce out. I had already made boxes plus one of my machines in semi cyclic but I wanted some trays in the front to collect balls and they work good for that too.

    It would be nice to get them cheaper. I paid $10 for each one of mine and I think the price went up. I was laughing because I noticed some people were getting into a bidding war over one and it was up to $19.

    For the back of the machines I use these.

    http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80098583/

    They are very reasonably priced and work very well. The lids come off if you don't want them. I also figured out that they are the same size as the original small imported bins. I also did some calculations and they are able to hold about 800 balls.

    I bought the 12 pack for like $30 They can hold about 1,500+ balls with no problem. They are super strong.

    Aren't the holes just big enough to let balls out on those?

    Nope, If you look at my video with the Hopper with the blast gate my wife pours in about 1,000 balls and
    they don't come out the holes in the side.
    These are Sterilite brand. I have seen other brands where they look similar but the holes are bigger.
    Basically $3 each and they will hold 2,000 balls easily.

    This area also doubles as my lobby for my Martial Arts school. The kids play with the machines before class and the parents play them while their kids take class. It is fun to watch how much fun they have with something so old. I think I enjoy watching them play as much as I enjoy playing them myself.
