I'm working on a design to feed Airsoft BB's through a funnel. A simple gravity fed system (ie. I don't want to force them out at speed) but every now and again the BB's get jammed at the end of the funnel.
I would like to use a motor to constantly keep the BB's moving and prevent jams.
The video below highlights the issue:
I would welcome any tips to improve the design/make it functional.
At the moment my thought is to add ridges to the inside of the funnel, this combined with the mixing action should shift them around enough to prevent the jam?
