Coin Pusher Kit

Build a Desktop Coin Pusher for Pennies!


The Coin Pusher was discontinued In Nov 2017 pending some needed improvements. I'm the midst of that now. Goal is to add flexibility on the motor end of the build. This means you'll have the choice of making this a hand crank (no motor), servo powered (continuous rotation or 180 rotation), or stepper motor power coin pusher. The mounting plates for all three variations will be included making this kit great for beginners or builders with motor driving experience. I imagine a standard size servo motor will be the way to go. 

Kits are available for the US penny and will accomodate coins smaller than the US penny. I did make an update assembly video. I will not be making any other documentation regarding assembly. If you're unsure how to assemble with the information provided and not confident you can figure it out- this kit is not for you. This kit is intended for the self-sufficient builder. A motor is not required to enjoy this build, as there is a way to drive the pusher with a crank. However, a motor will provide the best experience as you gamble away your pennies while trying to make a physics lecture out of it.

Kit Type:

The wood kit includes:

  • All wood panels cut from birch plywood.
  • Clear acrylic windows
  • A minimum set of hardware: 60 nuts /bolts to build the fame and bolt the windows on. You will still need hardware for the 'dozer' and the 'pinko' play field.

Again, the hardware included is only to assemble the body. You'll still need to source bearings and extra nuts and bolts, which ones depend on your build. Check the assembly video for details.

Items you will need to supply (not included):

  • Electronics where applicable: (Arduino, power supply, motor, wires)
  • Hardware, bearings, hindge, nuts/ bolts for the pusher mechanics (watch assembly video)
  • Coins, US Penny size or smaller
