Iíd be more than happy to throw in a few bucks too. Thatís what this hobby is about

The love of this community has me wondering if maybe id like to build another cabinet in the future. I was set on just doing one, but to be apart of this seems to good to just do once and leave behind.

We grow on you. Like a fungus.

You are going to wake up one day and say "Hey, I would like a cab with a CRT monitor in it."

Kiss you discretionary income goodbye. >:D

Im not gonna lie....it's crossed my mind....but for now i definitely don't want to tackle that. Coin door is about the last thing I'll do on this one for a while.

superhippieman nice build. Coin door will definitely be a nice finishing touch to your cab.

Been a while since I stopped by but glad to see the same helpful and generous members still around.

Well, turns out I have the door but I donít have the frame or the hinge.  This would be more trouble than it's worth to install.

Yeah, turned out I basically stripped everything out of that cabinet that was part of the wiring harness and junked the rest.  Really need to throw all that garbage away.

That's a hard question to answer. The best i can say is.....as close as i could get it. We did mess upp a spot or two causing it to have its own unique design but to most, its almost identical.

Just wanted to throw in my two cents:
Nice build man! Really nice.  :applaud: :applaud: :applaud: :applaud:
You may as well go ahead and face the facts though, you will be building more.

It could also lead as a gateway to collecting dedicated machines. I had all these multi game ideas in mind when I started, but I find much more joy restoring dedicated cabinets now.

  **NotThatSuperJenn puts on big glasses as to not be recognized.... (Giggle), I would have to agree, I had big dreams for Mame back in the day (Nice job on that one BTW) But got into dedicated and never looked back. anything coin/op really. games, jukes, slots, candy venders....Although Jenn did sell the pool tables a few years back due to space and maintenance problems.

This!

I'm on the other side - dozens of machines over the years. I owned a few dedicated but always went back to emulation. Too many weird issues with real cabinets to justify the differences.

Great looking machine. If I were to change 1 thing, it would be the hardware to mount the joysticks. Use some black carriage bolts. You could also buy some black carriage bolts at home depot and grind off the names, and spray paint black. Minor thing.

I mildly wondered if anyone would ever think about the fact that those are just regular bolts. In person no one has said anything, but you make a good point. I may just consider it.

and on a practical side of carriage bolts, you can be rubbing the bottom of your hand against them while playing. It is going to be noticeable then.

Depending on the size you need, you can often get ones without manufacturers stamps on the end, and some of the arcade supply vendors carry them.

Just an example:
