I found 2 nickels and 1 penny in my shootin hoops machine with beaver coin mechs. Is this was a drop thru coin mech does allow other coins or objects to fall thru and not jam the machine? Also do they get a gumball then or just loose there money? Hope they just loose cause how could you think it is a penny or nickel machine  LOL

Cool thanks thats kinda what I thought. I am excited about this location at a family restaurant that just last week started being open 24hr and I am the only machine there. Great possiblities for a rack or at least a toy machine. Got $24.75 in gumballs from shootin hoops in 20 days so not too bad

it's simple to test.  Drop a nickle, dime and then a penny into your mech and see what happens.  If it's like mine, you'll find that they just drop through without giving any product.  Watch out for peso coins tho.  They are slightly larger than quarters and they will actually get stuck in the mech.  I know from experience.

With where the dollars going, we might prefer the peso over the quarter.  ;D

Plus, we'd get the peso without diminishing the stock in our machine since the mech won't vend.

Of course, just kidding about that...

The drop-through coin mech is something that I listed right away as a 'must-have' on any machine I've considered buying.
