ordered some more toys ;)

I think I will use a retro pull switch instead of the top gun switch to power on the cabinet (and as a handle to lift up the control panel). the top gun switch is just too filigree for the giant cp.

  • If you don't try, you have no chance at innovation
is that main power?

i thought a switch to turn on a PC had to be momentary.

yes, it's for main power respectively to power a relay contactor for the mains.
for the pc I will use one of the push buttons.

yes, it's one of the very rare 4:3 plasma screens with native VGA resolution, very nice for retro arcade and consoles.

lols! I am loving this thing. I know I'm not the only one who started off not knowing how this is going to go, but it's been a blast watching this build.

Great quality build! But this is not my cup of tea... it's too f'n ridiculous.

I just picked up the same USB extender off eBay.  It just barely fits when mounting it on ¾" MDF.  I may end up routing the back of the board just to give it a little more to grab on to.

@ Ian
I know this build is not for everyone. I searched weeks over weeks for a nice retro TV rack/bench... I found nothing... this was the beginning of the lazy cab idea ;)

@ yotsuya
yeah, moving to another place could be a problem  ;D I think I have to order some of these bad boys :

a very difficult position for routing a T-Molding slot... so I decided to glue the mold  ;D I hope it will last long ;)




edit

mounted the IR sensor bar for the aimtrak lightgun... at a 15° angle for better aiming
