Although whats not so chuffy...Is the fact a larger tube, requires a larger cab, and in the Red Baron project (Since the only made 500 cockpits anyway) I am seriously considering a full composite, Using modified Star Wars cab plans.

 :o Wow, Jenn. I knew you were running mad science projects, but large screen vectors, that is wild. Would love to see the results. :cheers:

The grunge work is being done now, the not so fun stuff like photoshoping the marquee (obviously that and control panel are going to be larger too, But I will do a thread on the build for you guys...I dont have 100 yokes on the shelf Mike, I am guessing I did 100 or so of them over the course of the experiments, some were failed attempts...If you guys try it, 100 turns of 24 ga. Enameled magnet wire seems to be about right, but be really careful with those purity rings, they are really easy to break, (and that yoke winds up in the trash)...but you can then use a ampliphone/HV...Or that repro board.

.... With a television tube of comparable size, for larger tubes, you need a bigger coil for saturation😘

Yeah that's why we would like you to do a build guide.... pretty sure almost all of us are interested in rolling our own vector monitors considering how rare they've become.

You will document every step, no matter how minor or lurid.
This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

I wanted to say thanks to Saint for providing us with such a great outlet for learning more about those games of my youth. I had a spare PC lying around that summer and wanted to do something with it. I remembered futzing around with MAME earlier in the decade, and so I looked around. I found Mike Trellioís arcadecab.com website, which led me to here... which led me to a whole new world of new skills, an understanding of obsolete electronics, and all you great friends. Hereís to the next 10 years! :cheers:

I'll have to teach you guys the secret handshake sometime.  Butt-stuff may or may not be involved.
