Neat, I really like that. Trying to work out how you did the end that retains the coin. Did you bore the 1 size hole to have a flat bottom and mill half off?

Sorry looked at the pictures and didn't read the bit how you made it.
I guess there is a spring to push the coins up too?

Better make another and duct tape it to the first, wouldn't want to get caught short in a fire sale fight.

I like that Bob! :clap:

Too bad we don't have any coins here worth that much. We'd have to make a whole walking stick! :beer:
I love it when a Plan B comes together!

10 of them in there, eh?  Isn't 10 pounds a bit heavy to keep in your pocket?  Sorry, couldn't resist.
