Anyone selling something that allows Vendo 44's to vend the smaller 8 oz. bottle?

the stack that I bought from Funtronics does... you need to play a little with the enclosed vinyl wraps to maybe make them a little thicker to avoid the occasional double vend (i haven't played with it too much yet) other than that, you may want to try wrapping the horizontal bars in the bottom of your existing rack to make them thicker... a piece of automotive heater hose slit down the center may work...

Funtronics sells a set of Shims that go on the inside walls of the Rack.. it makes it narrower and allows you to properly vend the newer 8oz bottles.  the shims are just some peices of plexiglass, not sure on the thickness as that is the key element... "Rods secret I'd guess" biggrin
but I'm sure he can advise more.. but it can be done.
