Taito Ice Cold Beer scratch build
« on: October 06, 2016, 07:55:17 am »
This is mostly a publicly visible duplicate of a thread on aussiearcade: http://www.aussiearcade.com/showthread.php/83150-Taito-Ice-Cold-Beer-scratch-build
(Unfortunately photos on aussiearcade are only visible to registered users.)


Thanks heaps again to Jesse from Helensburgh for letting me take all the measurements of his machine.

I'm doing a bit of everything at the same time, and I'm slow.

Rough timeline:
- Research work and parts ordering - started Mar 2016
- Electronic tests and glass art reproduction - started May 2016
- Cabinet building - started Jun 2016
- Many more months to go.


Parts:
- Vaccuum formed playfield channels repro from Ebay
- CPO from ChompingQuarters
- Generic joysticks and button from Ebay
- Generic wheels and belt from Ebay
- Custom glass from glassreflections.com.au
- Home made glass art and playfield art (to do)
- Pretty much everything else from Bunnings..


Electrics/electronics:
- Arduino Mega, protoshield extension board, microSD shield, 7 segments displays and driver, sound amp, LEDs all from Ebay
- Stepper motors and drivers from Ebay
- Second hand speaker from Gumtree
- Program by myself, sounds reaped from the original ROM
- Low operating force microswitches from Element14

This is awesome! I sunk some serious coin in this game.... it's tough and the damn thing breaks weekly at my local pub.

Whoa! A scratch built ICB?

At first I was like: "Why don't you just buy an ICB...it would be a lot cheaper and easier". But then I realized you are probably living in Australia and they don't have ICBs there.

Very nice work.  :cheers:

Looks great!  I'm excited to see what you post about the electronics.  We've been slowly slogging away at that end for a while now but always hoping to see a different approach!

Loving this. Especially the finish quality. Is that black snakeskin T-moulding or something? The Cherry(?) vinyl looks great too.

Exactly. Extremely rare and expensive in oz. But to be honest building it is also more fun!

Let me know if anyone knows a (cheap and) better way to attach standard pin connectors to long ribbon cables..?

If you have a pair of ratcheting-crimpers with the correct crimping dies (keyword search "dupont crimpers"), you can crimp male or female Dupont pins directly to the wire.

 

There are a number of different cimpers that will work fine -- not sure which crimpers/dies will be in your price range.   :dunno

These are two options that work well for me.

The HT-225D is available here or here --  use the "24-30" slot for your ribbon cable.  (it is 24 gauge, right?)

 

If you have Harbor Freight, 236-series, or 336-series crimpers, the HT-236-2U crimp die set works fine -- use the "22" slot.

Next time I might go with some home made circuit board etching instead...  :P

Me too, awesome project

In europe you wont find an icecold beer, so ....

Will you share or sell your plans and software when finished? Id love to build one too.

Audio initial tests (Very low volume, no amplification yet)
Audio ripped from ICB Mame ROM, converted using Audacity, stored as WAV files on SD card and played using "SimpleSDAudio" Arduino library. (I wasn't able to get the more common "TMRpcm" library to work..)

Don't use the "Embed" URL.

1.  Start with either the address from the browser URL window or the address from the share tab directly below your YouTube avatar.

2.  Change the "https" . . .
Code: [Select]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WS4MemtY16g
Code: [Select]
https://youtu.be/WS4MemtY16g
to "http".  No tags are needed.

3.  (optional) When you post, the video title comes up as "! No longer available". You can edit the title like I did above.

Return switch bracket. With return and errant ball switches.
A bit of guess work here based on the manual drawings, as I don't have reference photos of this one.

Sliders.

The two metal sheets were hot-glued and jigsawed together, then separated with freeze spray.

The belt clamps have sandpaper glued inside.

No welder handy so the nuts are epoxied to the surface.

For the holes to be of the exact right diameter and to slide smoothly without any play, I filled them with Builder's Bog (plastic bondo), greased the end of the rods, inserted them in the holes, let it all dry and then just pulled the rods out. Now all nice and snug. I still had to polish the rods quite a lot and flood the whole thing with lithium grease but I'm now happy enough with the result.
