Step 1: Why?
Its about the size of a gum ball machine and works similar to one.
I am not a carpenter, these aren't the best cuts on here.
This was a concept project, it is not final.
Just think, if you're in an internet cafe and need a cd to burn some files on or something like that, instead of going to the nearest store and buying a whole package of discs you could just have one in a convenient vending machine.
According to my research you can sell each disc for $1 each and make $115 from selling 200 cd's .
Anyway onward to the building.
Step 2: Materials needed
Coin slide in amount of desired cost/cd
Machine screws and nuts
Misc pieces of metal
Once you have all the materials gathered up you're good to go!
Step 3: Cut your first piece
I don't recall what how big the hole for the coin slide was but it sits centered and 2 1/2 inches from the bottom.
I was using 1/2 inch wood so I cut the wood about 3/4 above the top of the coin slider. This cut is for the cd exit slot. I just cut the whole piece and cut out about 1/4 inch of the wood.
