Use this thread to post Arcade-related 3D printed projects, .stl files, and more. Letís keep the other thread for support questions. This one is strictly for arcade stuff.

Not really arcade, but here's the easy Gameboy style controller sleeve I made for my phone (Blu Life One X2).
The back would need to be resized to fit other phones.  If I did it over again, I'd make the bottom flat so it could stand on it's end.
Links to tinkercad files are in this post:http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,152133.msg1596901.html#msg1596901
Instructions are on the following posts.

Metal control panel button hole fillers

I need these.  Button hole plugs that I have found in the usual places all seem to be the raised plugs.  These sit flush, which is dope.

I am going to have my son print up a bunch of those PCB stand offs. He has access to 3D printers at school.

Figure out a way to hid a thumb drive in those SNES Mini toppers so that the pirates can stylishly contain their ROMs.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

Banding is part of it unfortunately.  I've found a can of filler primer works really well in terms of reducing it. 

HaRuMaN, do you have a link to the model file for those snes classic toppers?

I kind of agree, but these things aren't exactly sizable, you're just used to Haruman potato camera pictures.

That is a quibble I have with 3D printers. They are great for prototyping, but not so great for something meant to be displayed.

Well that's not quite right either. He could change the print resolution and have it take a redonkulous amount of time and it'd come out better. For its purpose that banding is fine.

Spoiler, those faux carts are for me and I might make em prettier but that zelda cart looks tits as is.

It just surprised me that people are willing to settle for "okay" on a piece meant for display when it is 3D printed. I am considering the level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that you guys put into your other work. I am not trying to be a jerk. I am trying to figure out how I feel about 3D printers. If you are happy with them then that is all that really matters. Saying they looked like ass was too harsh. It isn't my intent to crap on the work that Haruman does. It is more my thoughts on 3D printers in general.

I donít think they look completely like ass, but the expectation is that theyíre not injected molded either.

The satisfaction comes from holding something that started out as a concept or computer file in your hands that you made in the comfort of your own home.

By the way, up until I got a 3-D printer, I felt exactly the way that you did. But being able to design and then physically create something touches a creative nerve in me that I donít think I realized it would.

Anyone of these printers can put out a perfect smooth model. And I am sure someone will post something.
In this hobby though I see most people printing parts that visuals dont really matter.

Like Yots said, its more of the craft that gets people going.

Yeah but it's mostly a speed vs finish time thing.  Usually it's much quicker to print it out at a higher speed and sand or fill the print than to print it smooth.

No I will end up drilling holes for the mount and the heated plate. Even when I put the Borosilicate glass it forms to it. Ive never ran into the issue this bad until this printer. That Casa de Yots print would be perfect for dual or triple color.

I never heat the bed hotter than 60 degrees, so hopefully I wonít see much warping.

I snapped a tooth off an encoder wheel last night and I'm too impatient to order a new one so I just made one to print out.  I just freehanded it in photoshop based upon a scan of the broken wheel, so it might not be precision centered, ect. but I printed it out, put it in my drill and it spins really nice so it can't be THAT off.  I've enclosed the source photshop document as well as the finished stl.

There are encoder wheel generator programs out there.
At least there used to be back when I was tinkering with homemade spinners.

They were meant to be printed on transparencies, but would probably be fairly easy to import to a 3D modeling program.

The ones that I'm aware of don't print the outer part of the wheel, they just do the teeth.  Post a link if you know of one that does that outer ring.

Been years, but a quick google search turned up this one:


This download link looks legit, but I haven't verified.

EDIT: now get on that 3D printed 720į controller with it's unique encoder wheel

Nice.  Yeah that'll work.  I'm refining my 10 dollar 360 wheel I did a few years back.  I don't think I ever posted the pics of that.... need to do that tomorrow.

Just made this.  It's a replacement back-plate for an OG NES controller that simplifies installing a Pi Zero.  It effectively makes your NES controller a Plug-n-Play console.  I've got NES and Gameboy/GBC games on it now.

Cool idea but needing a power supply kills it.  I'm surprised that the Pi Zero can't be run off the HDMI port, to be honest.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

I think it would make more sense to do that with a snes controller tbh.  Not enough buttons for many games.  Clever idea though.

Only the entire NES, Gameboy, and Gameboy Color library...

There are similar concept back plates on Thingiverse for SNES controllers as well.

Yeah but knocking it up to 6 buttons covers everything up to the n64 and most arcade games.  If you are happy with it that is all that matters. 

Printing out parts to do my entire 360 degree wheel rig from scratch with 3d printed parts.  Just drew up the wheel hub.... cura says 2 and a half hours and it usually takes longer than cura estimates.  Gotta do both bearing holders as well.  Ugh....

Anyway, it's a pretty good design I think.  It's for people wanting to shoehorn a 360 degree wheel into their traditional analog racing cabinet.  You need a wheel with one of those removable hubs and enough room to drill a 2.25 inch hole in your dash.  Except for the wheel itself it's about 10 dollars in parts, and all can be found at your local tractor supply.  I been using it during the testing phase of my racing rig an aside from the encoder wheel breaking (it was just hot glued in place) it's worked great. 

Assuming I get it working with the newly printed parts I'll post the whole thing as a kit.

Update:  Parts are coming along nicely!  It took 2 or 3 prototypes for the bearing hubs, but the one I just printed off is perfect.  I have to engineer a holder for the optic pcb and then it's done.  I've never engineered something this complicated from scratch before and I'm a bit over-excited.

Was just thinking I needed something like this for the bottom of a sega genesis cartridge as i'm putting an rpi zero in.
gonna have to settle with using my glue gun instead for the usb hub and other connections i want to put in there.

I think hdmi only has 50ma on the 5v.
not enough to power much.

Depends on the port, but most supply enough current to do that.  My HDMI cord is 15' though, and longest USB cord I've got is only 6', so that plugs into the socket in my couch cup holder.

You know with fire stick and all these hdmi dongle devices being so popular along with the never ending train of Nintendo classic consoles, you'd think somebody would have made a long hdmi cable with a built in usb cable by now.  I thought I read somewhere that the next revision of hdmi is going to have a dc power line.

I haven't searched in a while, but I can't believe nobody has come out with a USB power supply that plugs inline between a standard C13/14 (tower PC style) power cable and inlet.  2 of the 4 TVs in my house use that connector for the cord and the wall warts can be a PITA when the outlet is on the wall behind the TV.  It would be a better solution for the streaming sticks.  Either that or a USB outlet on the TV with a decent amperage rating.

Pi zero can't really handle snes fx chip games so N64 is right out.

That encoder generator puts out an image.  You can import that into inkscape and turn it into a vector then run it through a small cnc machine.  I know this is the 3d printers page but i'm looking at the hobby cnc router/engravers on amazon right now.  I tried printing one of those encoders out and sandwiching it between two clear cd inserts for a spinner once.  It didn't work out that well.  If i had to do it  again, cutting out a proper one would be the way to go.  can anybody put the paperboy encoder discs on a flatbed scanner and pop the scans my way??

^ what he said....

LOL
A 6" metric ruler makes more sense than a metric yardstick that probably wouldn't have fine enough markings to make an accurate measurement.   :duckhunt

Anyways, I want to try out this project:

I haven't done anything with a raspberry pi yet so it will be an adventure.

Klaatu42 made a Super Off Road Encoder Wheel. (P/N 25-11007-01)

Hi. Here is a 3d printable replacement for the original steering encoder wheel (not the flat style some machines have) for Ivan Stewart's Super Off-Road cabinets. Print with 100% infill. I used black PLA.

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2760779

If you try this and have any feedback or want to request any changes to the model, let me know on Thingiverse in the comments.

* Designed this coin door latch/credit button

* Printed this UFO and "tractor beam" for my Viper Night Drivin' pinball.  The beam was printed with glow in the dark filament so it is UV-reactive for the blacklights.

Doesn't anyone bother finishing anything they 3D print? Have some pride in workmanship. The machine does all the work. The least you can do is get out some sandpaper or paint or something. I saw a Pokemon planter somewhere in this forum. It was actually finished. It looked sweet. I get it if the part is not going to be displayed, but most of this stuff is meant for display.

Well the wood filament that he printed with supposedly loses it's wood look if you sand it.  You really don't want anything painted touching the switch anyway.

Doesn't anyone bother finishing anything they 3D print? Have some pride in workmanship. The machine does all the work. The least you can do is get out some sandpaper or paint or something. I saw a Pokemon planter somewhere in this forum. It was actually finished. It looked sweet. I get it if the part is not going to be displayed, but most of this stuff is meant for display.

That Pokemon planter owns.  My wife loves it.

The only thing that comes to mind is a tool to aid in the installation of t-molding around corners. But that just raises the question, why wasn't it designed more ergonomically? So I guess that's out.

Very close, brother.

Itís a jig to help me re-Bondo and putty the rounded corners on my Dynamo cab. Iíll apply the putty, then press down on the round part, let it dry, then sand. Beats shaping it by hand.

The name of the tool you're thinking about is a fillet gauge.

There are tons of them on thingiverse.

Here's the OpenSCAD code for a few of them I designed to measure curves on a small octagon.

Small metric 1 - 2.5mm
Code: [Select]
$fn=360;
//
difference (){
translate([0,0,0]) linear_extrude(height = 2, scale = 1)
        polygon(ngon(8,10));

translate([0,10,1]) cylinder(4, r=1.5, center=true); //Top

translate([10,0,1]) cylinder(4, r=2, center=true); //Right

translate([0,-10,1]) cylinder(4, r=2.5, center=true); //Bottom

Happ-sized (55mm) dust washer based on the Ikari Warriors joystick surround artwork.

Print the .stl using a 0.4mm nozzle or use the .scad, .dxf, and .svg files to make custom-size washers and/or change the line thicknesses.

Details are in the enclosed Readme file.


Scott
EDIT: On line 20 of the SCAD file, you may need to increase the variable "FineThick" (fine line width) to 0.6 to generate a STL that works with your slicer software and printer.

I tried 0.41 and 0.45, but both resulted in the slicer missing some of the lines.   :banghead:

LOL... Yeah, cuz my guess of it being a tool to press t-molding into a corner is nothing like it being a tool to shape bondo into a corner... ::)

Dude, I stared at that ---smurfing--- thing for far too long.

But kudos on making the 3D printer to the ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- work.

I guessed it.  lol

Is it a jig to measure rounded corners?  I'm actually cutting myself several in different sizes.

Very close, brother.

Put the yayo down and actually LOOK at it.... ;)

LOL... Yeah, cuz my guess of it being a tool to press t-molding into a corner is nothing like it being a tool to shape bondo into a corner... ::)

Dude, I stared at that ---smurfing--- thing for far too long.

But kudos on making the 3D printer to the ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- work.

Yeah, Iím all about printing functional items. No tugboats for me!

See this is why we get along so well... you totally get me man.  Work smarter, not harder.  :)

The ones that I'm aware of don't print the outer part of the wheel, they just do the teeth.  Post a link if you know of one that does that outer ring.

Been years, but a quick google search turned up this one:


This download link looks legit, but I haven't verified.
http://www.societyofrobots.com/downloads/

EDIT: now get on that 3D printed 720į controller with it's unique encoder wheel
If anyone wants to make a custom 720į-style encoder wheel, I've remixed the OpenSCAD Customizable Optical Encoder generator here to include a 6mm (d=6) indexing hole.

Inserted this code just before the last line. (new lines 281 and 282)
Code: [Select]
   translate ([0, outer_diameter/2 - rim_width - slit_length * 2, 0])
    cylinder (wheel_height + 1 ,d=6,center=true);

Translate means move, so if you want to move the index hole along the Y-axis, add to or subtract from the Y-axis value.

Current Y-axis location value:     "outer_diameter/2 - rim_width - slit_length * 2"
Move 3mm closer to the rim:     "outer_diameter/2 - rim_width - slit_length * 2 + 3"
Move 5mm closer to the center: "outer_diameter/2 - rim_width - slit_length * 2 - 5"

Full remix code:
Code: [Select]
//customizable optical encoder
// James Wickware - 7/18/2016

// preview[view:north east, tilt:top diagonal]

/* [Encoder] */
// the outer diameter of the optical encoder in millimeters.

// the length of the slits in millimeters.
slit_length = 6; //[0:0.5:75]

// the number of slits in the encoder.
slit_count = 72; // [2:100]

// the ratio of the slit opening to the solid section between the slits. (0.5 is equal )
slit_ratio = 0.5; // [0.05:0.05:0.95]

// the distance between the outer diameter and the opening of the slits in millimeters.
rim_width =  1.8; // [0:0.25:25]



/* [Hub] */
// the diameter of the inner hub in millimeters.
hub_diameter = 12; // [0:0.25:25]

// the length that the hub shaft extends from the encoder wheel in millimeters.
hub_height = 4; // [0:0.5:50]

// Choose whether or not you want the shaft to go all the way through the encoder wheel.

Finally got around to making these:


My attempts at making larger threads failed, so I used a nut and bolt off thingiverse to just get it done.
I envisioned a larger threaded post, but this will do.

The blade is resting on a 5/8" thick arbor and the whole thing is printed at 100% density.
I don't see any reason it would shear off. 

The only way I see it failing is if I were to over-tighten and break the smaller threaded part off.
Time will tell.

I've hung saw blades on penny nails and printed at 100% infill that bolt would be 3x as strong as that.  It'll be fine.

So I got my Ender 3 and some nice white pro PLA from MatterHackers.  Would it be possible (and not a waste of PLA) to print out some Star Wars Yokes and gears?

It has been talked about before: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=133656.0

Not sure if they would break under wear and tear.

Also has anyone made a cover for their 3d printer?  I am not sure about the IKEA lack mod, but the PVC enclosure looks cheaper an contains the heat, since the weather is getting colder.





If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

about to pull the trigger on a 3d printer.
just waiting for the tax return to come in.
going for the anycubic chiron.
expensive but huge build volume which i'll take advantage of.

So I got my Ender 3 and some nice white pro PLA from MatterHackers.  Would it be possible (and not a waste of PLA) to print out some Star Wars Yokes and gears?

It has been talked about before: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=133656.0

Not sure if they would break under wear and tear.

Also has anyone made a cover for their 3d printer?  I am not sure about the IKEA lack mod, but the PVC enclosure looks cheaper an contains the heat, since the weather is getting colder.





Just read this. Iím actually building an enclosure this weekend. Bought 3 IKEA Lacks and am printing the parts as I type. I saw one some friends set up and itís perfect.

Lately it has been getting cooler in the garage, and it has been hard to get the bed up to temperature.  So that lack enclosure is becoming a necessity.  Are you going with glass or lexon?

I've been thinking metal is the way to go.  That way, if my printer ever has a meltdown and overheats it would have a harder time catching anything on fire.  I can just put some foam board on the outside for insulation.  I know that regardless, it needs to be designed in such a way that I still have full access to every angle of the printer.  I don't know how many times I've been trying to insert new filament and I've ended up having to fully or partially take the extruder apart to get things going properly. 

So I'm thinking the base and the sides/top need to be attached via latches so I can just unlatch from the bottom and lift the whole thing off if needed. 

I know that the pvc pipe is probably a bad idea.  It's cheaper, but pvc gets brittle over time, especially if it's exposed to sunlight so it might snap on you.

Howard, if you look closely at my pic, the top section has a 3D printed piece between it and the middle table. Itís a connecting mechanism that allows me to lift the top off for easy maintenance.

Itís kind of like stacking cones. The bottom is a cone shaped piece. The top has a cone shaped hole in the bottom. I think it will work very well.

I can't really tell from the pics, sorry about that man. 

I've got some sheet metal lying around I might go ahead and pickup some aluminum L channel and try things my way.  Not sure.  If we had an ikea nearby I'd probably be doing it your way.

Here, I zoomed in on the pic for you. You can see the two pieces.



Anyone here do Octoprint?

That should work.  I haven't really seen the need for Octoprint.  It's a really cool idea, but these are Chinese printers so I'm too terrified to leave it unattended for too long.

That looks awesome. Your prints look very nice indeed.   :applaud:  I cannot wait until it is finished.  Are you going to add a temperature sensor too?

I have some lacks going spare (was for lack arcade) and I will do the same.  I got one of IKEA's small BEKVńM carts to put the printer on and have a spare PC underneath.  I also got octoprint working on a Pi zero W, and I know about the streaming issue, but I bought the small camera for time lapse.  Have you seen the palette pro yet?

The first thing I did was add a MOSFET, so Iím pretty confident nothing is going to catch fire.

One thing Iím going to do when I move the setup over is the remove the power supply from the printer and mount it under the top enclosure. Iím also going to take the LCD off the top of the frame and move it to a more convenient location.

Iím probably going to buy a Pi for the project if I do it, so Iíll get a regular one, not the Zero. I do want to add a camera.

Also thinking about doing this auto level kit. Any experience/recommendations?

I have one installed as well and it should take care of anything, but one time when I was changing the nozzle out the temp probe fell loose on the heater and if I hadn't been sitting right there it would have caught on fire.  There are lots of little things that can go wrong that just makes me weary. 


That bed leveling kit is a bit on the steep side.  I think you can get what you actually need for $20 or less.

Iíve seen cheap knockoffs, but Iím a firm believer that you get what you pay for. The thing I like, if you read the reviews, is that the seller really stands behind the product. To me thatís worth the extra costs.

No that's not what I mean.  The "kit" that comes with the other parts is unnecessary.  You can buy the same sensor by itself cheaper.

True, but itís convenient that itís all together, plus again the guy gives impeccable support. Thatís worth it to me.

Fair enough.  Let me know how it works for you because I've been thinking of doing the auto-level mod but half of everybody out there says it isn't worth it.  Never sure who to believe on these things.  I just know that calibration is a pain in the butt when you haven't used it in a while.

Yeah, Iíve actually gotten pretty good at just manually leveling my printer and tweaking it if need be. But I would like to try auto-leveling to see how well it works.

have looked at octoprint.
seems like a better way to go than using an SD card.

Have a spare rpi2 somewhere i can use.

been waiting for my printer to show.
It's been "out for delivery" since this morning.

Lookin' good. I built an enclosure for my ender 3 and after a while it just got to be a pain in the ass because I couldn't easily work on the printer. In a perfect world I wouldn't need to work on it, but I felt like I was always having a hard time. I'm only printing PLA in a cold basement so I didn't get much benefit from it anyway.

Doing the post bed leveling print now.
Made adjustments while printing and I think I got it level.
hard to tell since it's just a big cricle with a cross hairs in it.

When that is done i'll print that boat or owls.

Also I knew how long it takes to print something because I watched real time videos, ect but seeing it....

Yeah I don't use mine as much as I thought I would due to the time it takes to print stuff.  It's useful for those specialized bits though. 

If you like petg filament, amazon has a bit of a sale right now..... 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D6BYW5Q/ref=twister_B07DVL9DTD?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

A little over 50 bucks for 5 spools or 17 for a single spool.

Oh WOW.
That's a good price.
I just spent $30 for two rolls of PLA.
and spent $17 for a roll of petg.

With PetG being easier to print i'm not sure i should bother with ABS.

Because of my printers volume I could totally print something like this for use with an old 7" android tablet.
But is it worth it?

Yeah I thought I would pass it along but I'm reluctant to pull the trigger myself because I haven't really messed with petg yet.  PLA gets the job done for most things.  Anyone have any experience?

Yeah I don't use mine as much as I thought I would due to the time it takes to print stuff.  It's useful for those specialized bits though. 

If you like petg filament, amazon has a bit of a sale right now..... 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D6BYW5Q/ref=twister_B07DVL9DTD?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

A little over 50 bucks for 5 spools or 17 for a single spool.

Oh WOW.
That's a good price.
I just spent $30 for two rolls of PLA.
and spent $17 for a roll of petg.

With PetG being easier to print i'm not sure i should bother with ABS.

Yeah I thought I would pass it along but I'm reluctant to pull the trigger myself because I haven't really messed with petg yet.  PLA gets the job done for most things.  Anyone have any experience?

I'm printing up a tap handle as a test in PLA but I want these for outside so PET-G will be my next attempt if I like how this one comes out.

I only use Hatchbox filament. Is the Amazon Basics version any good?

I don't have a clue, but I've never bought a bad amazon basics product before... I assume it's at least useable.

I ordered the pet-g.
Will try it out later this week when it comes in.
And I look up the proper setting for my printer to use it.

Got Phase 1 of the overhaul completed. Once I mount it in the enclosure, Iíll be ready for Phase 2 - new fiberglass belts as well as the auto bed level sensor.

I used this: itís a top mount faceplate:

Anet A8 LCD holder found on #Thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2232518

For the sides and back I used some parts I had previously printed when it was mounted to the top. I found a faceplate I liked that I printed to cover the hole.

No problem.

I need to overhaul my belts. I printed out this Ikea Lack Switchboard...

found on #Thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3329766

And the holes for the buttons were a bit too ovally for my tastes.

Anyone here use belt tensioners like this?

I use one similar but it doesn't have the printed threads - just uses a nut and screw for that part.  I did add a zip tie around the outer part as it seemed to want to spread under load.  It's been working fine.

I got my amazon basics pet-g in.
First attempt was a carabeaner.
235c nozzel and 85C bed.
A stringy mess but it printed.

I adjusted nozzel temp up to 238c and played around with wall thickness and layer height plus resolution and some other settings I don't fully understand yet. LOL!

and i only saw a little stringing at the beginning and heard the extruder clicking so I raised the Z height a tiny bit while printing (an option with my printer) and I think it looks good.
I choose to make this to test things are solid and because I have a puck light and I think it looks cool.

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3434805

Will report back on how the filament performed in a day or two when it's done printing.

A good friend of mine who uses his home 3-D printer to create arcade parts has been testing filament from many different manufacturers and tells me the Amazon Basics is actually pretty good for the price. So buy with confidence.

locking wheels might be an idea.
I have mine on the dining room table and i've had to pull the table out twice to get behind it.
I think I need a cart also but it has to have wheels.

Funny you mention that.... I was thinking maybe one of those metal carts might be a good alternative to the ikea end tables.  At least for the bottom part.  Been having trouble finding a good design though.

Dialing in the PETG printing.
playing with retraction settings and temp settings and stringing is getting way better and less boogers on the nozzle.
just uploaded a petg profile to octoprint from curo 15.04 so when current print is done i'll try that.

then i'll print the parts for the rpi clops 3d scanner and order the electronics to make it work.

You know, even though it's cheap I hate to pay more for shipping than I do for the actual product out of sheer principle, but that is looking really good.  I might have to re-evaluate my plans.  Keep up the good work Yots.

Thanks, Howard. I got more up my sleeve ;)

My plan is to paint the outside of the walls black like the table, but the inside walls will be white so the chamber itself isnít so dark.

that's pretty.
do all the sides come off easy?

I'm currently printing up an led strip hanger for my printer.
It's has two 6 inch sections of led strips that hang on either side of the z axis bar.

Also petg is NOT for detail work or small parts or parts with overhangs.
Boxes, case ect and simple parts that move like the articulating arm for the camera i'm using for octoprint? yes.

I've picked up some pla (pro/plus/premium) it requires a higher temp but is stronger and more flexible and looks like it lays down really well.

The enclosure is designed so that the whole top is supposed to come off, but me being the tinkerer that I am, Iím going to use magnets so that I can pop a side off quickly if I need to.

Still need to drill the holes to mount the switches for that plate.

Black painted. Of course, it being black paint, it gets everywhere. Oh well, will sand and touch up the white side. Once all is dry.

Did you tack up an LED strip in there yet?

Not yet. Still planning the best way to do that

that's pretty.
do all the sides come off easy?

I'm currently printing up an led strip hanger for my printer.
It's has two 6 inch sections of led strips that hang on either side of the z axis bar.

/fail.
the clips for this were too delicate.
for me at least.
I think I need to design my own.

Are those the 16mm buttons you see on ebay all the time?  I need some for a project and I'm wondering if you are satisfied with them. 

*edit* Nevermind on the endtablesÖ. looking at the dimensions they are probably too small.

I like the buttons - theyíre a solid metal. I soldered all the connection last night and tested. They light up only when activated, which is what I wanted.

The fit with the table is going to be tight for the Anet A8. Iím relocating the power supply out of the chamber. More later!

Thanks man.  Never mind about that end table comment... I had linked to a pair of end tables on sale 2 for $16 at Walmart, but looking at the dimensions they are just too small.

Nah.  Shipping actually isn't terrible, but I'd pay more for shipping than the tables.  :)  I've got other projects atm so I'm not going to sweat it until I'm ready to start.
