Hello everyone! I have been planning this project for a while now: Coin Sorter Version 2! This sorter has many new features and improvements over Version 1, including:
- Faster sorting
- Easier to adjust for different coins
- Choices of how to take the coin holders out and easier to replace them (more info in Step 7)
- No longer uses a motor
- Includes an optional funnel so inserting coins is easier
These features make this sorter much better than the original. This coin sorter sorts American coins (dimes, pennies, nickels, and quarters), but can be easily adjusted to sort coins of different sizes. Also, I've made the instructions so that the coin funnel is optional, just in case you don't have enough pieces. The funnel just makes it easier to add the coins into the sorter. I first built this new sorting system in my skeeball machine. If you use this coin sorter anywhere else, please be sure to give me credit.
This won in the Rods and Connectors Contest, thanks for everyone's support! :-)

So, if you want to build it, let's sort to the next step!
