Legs for a Pinball Cabinet Build
« on: September 08, 2014, 09:53:26 am »
Hello everyone.  Building my first Visual Pinball cabinet and I am to the point of where I need to install some legs.  Been shopping around and I seriously cannot believe how expensive these things are  :)

Anyway during my research I found I need to buy more than just the legs, I think.

Anyone give me any ideas on everything I need to buy?
Thanks,
Rich

For extra support, you can by a bracket meant to be inside of the cabinet that you bolt to the leg.  I'll see if I can find a picture.

Thanks!  The prices are comparable to other sites but the shipping is cheaper!

I have never had an issue with a Pinball Life order, and he gets pretty cheap if you buy various things in bulk.  I'm not exactly a big spender but we've probably done $700 or so in business without a single problem.

Pinball Life is top shelf for fair prices and customer service.  I have placed so many orders and never had a problem.
