    Here's my bubble gum machine that I recently sold. I tried posting the pic in the gallery but it wouldn't let me. I wasn't sure if it's something on my end or this end. So, I'll just post her here.

          When you lift her tail, she drops out a treat for you, from her behind, into the bucket.

          I have a little plastic reindeer that pretty much does the same thing and when I saw this pattern, I had to have it.

          I never thought I would sell her, but one of the women I work with wanted it for her 10-year old nephew's birthday. Seems he's at the age where bathroom type humor is funny. I'm still at that age, but that's another story.

          I think it would be funny to put brown M&Ms in her, but I'll have to make one for myself now, after I make one for one of the other women at work.

              Hows it work?????

              OK, I gotta try one,
              where did you get the pattern??

              tell me can you show how the dispencer works? is it a tapered tray that gravity feeds into a slot in the tail,

              Questioning, becuse i want to make a goat. that dispences peanuts for my brother in law, who is turning 40.
              he loves peanuts and eats them by the gallon can... so it will be used.

                I ordered the pattern from Meisel Hardware I don't have the actual item number, but if you search under Cow it will come up.

                The body is actually 5 different pieces that form the cavity for the gumballs. The center piece has the head and udder area which is slanted toward the back. Then there are 2 pieces that are glued on to either side to make the cavity wide enough for the gumballs. Then 2 more pieces are glued on to enclose the inner cavity. The tail is a separate piece that gets fitted into an opening in the back and is held in place with a headless nail. The head, ears and legs are then glued on.

                It was a lot of fun to make. Hope that helps.

                      I don't have much doubt that I asked these questions to Denny in an email back when I got my Pegas saw from him. But none of my saved emails were transferred over from the old computer to this new one.

                      Since what I use mostly is 3/4-inch pine and 1/4 inch multiply which pegas blade would...

                      Hi Jim.

                      The paints I used are mainly aerosol spray.

                      The green is Rus-oleum Painters touch, craft enamel.

                      The red is a stores brand own name, just called Wilko's

                      Don't know if you will get either of these in Mexico, but I'm

                      Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

                      I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.

                      Nice precise work Alex, as always from you.

                      I also find Celtic these designs fascinating due to their intricacy and geometrical symmetry but I doubt I have your patience to cut them!

                      Well done!
