JB Weld and/or hot glue gun

Step 1: SUPPLIES

Plastic jar or container

7" - 10" plastic funnel

Step 2: TRIM FUNNEL

Using a utility knife, remove the tab and lower two thirds of the spout - making sure that coins can fall through easily.

Step 3: HOLE IN THE LID

Cut a hole in the center of the lid large enough to seat the funnel firmly.

(option - remove the lid and just let the funnel rest in the mouth of the jar)

Step 4: EPOXY COIN LAUNCH TO FUNNEL

Using JB Weld, epoxy the 3D printed coin launch/ramp to the edge of the funnel.

Make sure coin exit from ramp is parallel and below the rim of the funnel.

Step 5: GLUE FUNNEL TO LID

Fix the funnel to the jar lid with the hot glue gun.

Run a few coins through the vortex as your holding the funnel in place while the glue cools - making sure that the funnel is level and that the coins are circling properly.
