    Default Another Candy Cane machine

    Here's my take on the candy cane machine which toozie21 made a couple of years ago. I had planned to decorate it a bit, but time slipped away. The kids find it pretty exciting!

    This is now on my 2021 project list. I commented on youtube but do you have a list of the electronic parts and how they all interact? Also, is that simply a spring supported by a pvc pipe that eventually drops the candy cane into the shoot?

    I updated youtube to have some links, but I'll put them here too:

    These are the motors: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1129108956.html

    These are the coils: https://www.ebay.com/itm/15-Count-Sp...l/223346232310

    Here's the controller I made: https://oshwlab.com/garymullen/candy-cane-controller-2

    I used this buck converter to go from 12v to 5v: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MQGMOKI

    I need to cleanup the arduino code, but I'll do that and then upload to github and share that too.

    Let me know if you have any questions

    Nicely done, looks great!

    Mine is still going strong and is a big hit. We even used it for Halloween this year with Halloween candy canes to keep some distance from the kids.

    I don't know if it will be of interest, but after reading this thread I remembered that I never wrote anything up on the project. Here is my oversimplified description.

    Gary,
    This link is bad.
    Can you repost a working one?

    It works for me. I tried with Chrome, Edge, and an incognito window. Maybe give it another try?
