Here's how I built my mechanical RNG, modify it as you wish for whatever kind of game you want.
I built mine mostly for Virginia's cash 5 which is a 5 in 34 game.
I took 34 soft drink plastic bottle tops, mine are yellow, and with a good permanent magic marker
I numbered each one on the outside 1 thru 34. Then put them in a box or container (even a plastic grocery bag, and blow it up like a balloon) and shake it. Then pick one without looking at the number and continue shaking and picking them out until you have as many as you need.
When I make a 7 or 8 number wheel I pull out 7 or 8 out, etc
I also have a set 0 thru 9 for P3 and P4 now. And you can modify it as needed, you can get blue and red tops for highs and lows, or odds and evens, or almost any pre-designated grouping method should work if it remains consistent, which is the purpose of the differet color tops.
