Do you have pics of the board number plaques? I would like to see what you did with them.

I think you are WAY more creative than me..  I just follow directions well  :)

But a laser would be sooo fun to try to do things with..  The Mrs. on the other hand would have me lasering everything..
My next assignment is to 'distress' wood for multiple mirror frames.. So maybe its good I don't have one..   :P

You should see the freakin' ideas Arroyo has. They are brilliantly nuts. I swear. I didn't realize what a big deal it is to sit in the same room with a like minded arcade guy and just blurt out ideas between drinking, playing games, and fixing them.

Yea - I like the CP work on his machine.  Looking forward to it getting to that stage..
Makes me want to try something with lights and plexi, etc..  Sounds like a fun visit!

Now fixing things - I can do that - I pretty much can fix anything that's broken - if its fixable.

I like the work of the creator of this thread too :)  I started playing darts a little over a year ago..  Great setup..

I did the kids trophies they are holding in the photo on the right.

Notice the evolution of the plaques.

The one on the left has a roman ogee routed border on the sides only. I was using my router table and I kept destroying the top part of the frame when I tried routing with the ogee bit.

I was using a pattern bushing and a template to create the window and the rabbeted pocket that the acrylic, photo, and backing cardboard sat in. Picture frame tabs hold it all in place.

Two strong magnets hold the plaque to the wall.

The one on the right was done with my CNC machine. I cut the oak board to size with my chop saw. I run the borders on my router table with the ogee bit. Then I clamp it to my CNC machine to cut out the window and the pocket.

You will also notice the laser work is better on the 2019. I had just replaced the 60 watt laser tube.

This is a fun ongoing collaboration. Nephasth has been tweaking the graphic files he sends to me. He comes up with great ideas like using magnets to mount the plaques. Above all he has been patient with me as I continue to streamline and improve my process.

One of these days I am going to get drunk at the Oche.

Those are amazing. Love how they are dart holders. Beats my homemade dart holder by a long shot. Lucky kids!

Mike - What I love watching your CDC work. Really nice oak you are cutting as well. (I still love my plaque I have hanging up.) I have a homemade CNC, thinking of upgrading it. Just picked a commercial kitchen cabinet out of a dumpster, and now have a better surface to house my CNC.

What are your works area dimensions? That seems to be a roadblock I keep hitting, and don't know what a best answer is other than "Bigger"
Does the laser swap with a router as needed?

My CNC router work area is 24 inches wide, by 12 inches deep, by 3 inches of height. Give or take on the height depending on the bit.
I can pass the work piece through the 12 inch side so it is really 24 x however long you need.

The laser is a completely separate machine. It is a 60 watt CO2 laser.

Can you route out Midway cocktails?  Asking for a friend.

I could probably do it. I would need a DXF file or a CRV file.

classicarcadecabinets.com has a file but it is not known how accurate it is.

Added some warm white LED strips to the tops of the Radikal boards. Mike's board number plaques are easier to see now in the dimly lit dart hall. Used spare parts I had on hand. Love me some $Free.99...

Look PBJ! FootballDarts!

I would like to know more about football darts

It's a fun game! I try to throw a FootballDarts Tournament about once a month to mix things up. Very challenging, as the scoring areas are rather small and you have to weigh risk/reward when choosing passing or running plays. People who love football enjoy this game. Hell, I hate football, but have a blast playing FootballDarts. You can read more about how to play on Footballdarts.com. However, boards are pricey at $110 a piece, which is why I bought Amazon out of their stock when I saw them at $5 shipped each about a month ago.

The steel tip tablets cast match scores to the TVs during league play. Makes it easier for players to read the scores.
