Galaga-Tully caberet
« on: March 05, 2019, 11:17:17 am »
It's been a while since I've had any content, but I've finally picked back up an old project. Progress may be slow. Shout out to Tully and yots for the inspiration.


The wood  ;)






The cab

Nice!   :cheers:

Love these cabaret builds.  Is that white melamine you are building it out of?

That's just pre primed ply wood. Birch maybe?

Well progress is ramping. Got most the photoshop done and found a 13inch CRT TV. So this might move to finished sooner than expected.

Here's a small update with the coin door.

So is your CP going to be on the same plane as the bezel area around the monitor?  Is it all one piece?

Now the monitor isn't showing picture. I can hear it power on but that's it. Got a little jolt fiddling with it.

With it turned off, just make sure something didnít come loose. That happens a lot with the CRTs when you decase them.

Looks like I'm back on track. Still adjusting the art files to get ready for printing. Anyone still printing here?

Yes 13 inch CRT TV. It's been almost 2 years waiting to get a proper monitor for this build, but never found one. I couldn't wait anymore to start so I found an old TV.  Wont get the best possible picture, but it beats an LCD/Led in the looks department.

tried dicking with it all Saturday and failed. Found another 13 inch on Facebook for 10 bucks and grabbed that sunday.

Also if I leave it on it does turn back on when I unpplug and plug it back in if anyone was wondering. So boot up should be smoothe.

You might be able to find a "sample" from a plastic company that will be big enough for what you need. Probably get away with just paying shipping too.

Honestly cant say yet. Had them a long time and haven't hooked them up before. They look very sensitive.

OR do a second layer of clear plexi over the smoked with the art sandwiched between the 2 !
