awesome! I've gone overkill on mine and built an aluminum 18" box and hopper, motorized it and bolted it to a table! I'll post a thread on it in a few days when I get the rest of the pieces back from the metal shop!

You should have seen our first hopper. It was a cardboard budwieser 12 pack box. A wee bit ghetto, but it worked.
