Wishing Well Mail Sensor by madsci1016 Oct 8, 2012


This is a small latch that triggers a photo interrupter when a card is dropped through the slot of a wishing well. It’s meant to be installed on the underside of a slot. When something goes by, it pushed the arm into the beam of a small photo interrupter. More details about the Electronic Wishing Well this was made for: http://www.billporter.info/?p=1510

Print out arm and base. Use a piece of a paper clip to hold arm to base. Bend loops on either end to secure paperclip to base.
