Building a Zoltar Fortune Teller: Part One
I have always thought the mechanical fortune teller machines where a thing of wonder and I've always wondered about making one myself.
I have previously experimented with making a proof of concept miniature version here but as I had some spare time on my hands I decided to scale up to a full sized cabinet.
I started by rescuing an old wardrobe that was skipped and used the panels to put together the bottom half of the cabinet. The intention is to have the bottom half collecting the money and dispensing fortune cards, with the top half house Zoltar in a framed enclosure.
