Step 2: Hacking a Radio
Step 3: Enhancing the Circuit Board
When the coin lands on the scoop it will switch on the micro switch and in turn will complete the circuit and the radio will play.
Step 4: Creating the Base of the Radio
2X (220x50) front and back
2X (107x50) sides
2X (207x107) top and bottom
in one of the 220x50 cut out a rectangle (97x38) on the left hand side. this will now be the front
on one of the (207x107) cut 2 circles 6mm and 30 mm apart and create a slit on the left hand side of the wood big enough for a coin to fit through. This will now be the top
Step 5: Cut Plastic
3X (220x180) front middle and back
4X (220x5) sides
4x (120x5) slats for coin to roll down
1 x (150x 5) for the top between front and middle.
I used a laser cutter to cut out the shapes as it gave a smooth edge and precise cut but a band saw works just as well.
Step 6: Cutting the Grill for the Front
I cut mine on the laser cutter for a precise finish.
insert as many holes as you wish and what ever shapes you wish.
this grill should now cover the hole created in the wooden box
Step 7: Glue Plastic
do the same again bar cutting the semi circle
then glue the two together. then on the front add the four 120 x 5 at angle so that the coin can roll down.
Add the 150x5 to the top. then finish of by potting the last 220x180 on top to enclose it all.
Step 8: Creating the Box
the other side will have to be left off till you fit a handle and the bottom cant be fitted till the circuit board is added to it.
Step 9: Smoothing the Plastic
Step 10: Attaching the Plastic to the Wood
Step 11: Attach the Circuit Board
Step 12: Finishing Off
Step 13: Final Outcome
