Has anyone had any luck on installing the Shim Conversion kit on a Vendo 44 to allow it to vend the small aluminum bottles?
not sure if the thickness is the same or less than the new glass bottles, so not sure if we need to go to a thicker plexi shim plate?

would be curiuos to know any success stories or failures?

Check with Shane I think he's been successful with the conversion ...

Hate to bump an old thread, but has this been done?
I've bought the can rockers from Fun-tronics but someone said they sold the shims too??

I have had zero luck using the shims with the 8oz glass bottles.  They can only stack a few high and then start falling back.   I know you can get the can conversion, but I wanted to try and use the bottles.   I don't know their size compared to the aluminum bottles.  The issue is the old 6oz glass bottles had thicker glass, but I am finding the shims while they help with this a bit I still cannot stock more than a few on each side.  Here is my discussion:  http://soda-machines.com/discussions/index.php/topic,22078.0.html
