How to level cabinet?
« on: June 18, 2021, 03:14:57 pm »
I am on the final stages of building my own arcade cabinet.  It is a replica of the old Nintendo VS Cabinet (or Donkey Kong cabinet, if you will).
I made the base out of 2x4, and it came out great, but it is somehow uneven.  The whole cabinet rocks when standing on the base.
(Think of a table with one leg slightly shorter than the rest, and that's kind of how it feels.)

How can I correct this and make the cabinet sit steady?

Is it on casters?

Leg levellers are always awesome but it may require a retrofit of your cabinet.
Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools! I can fix it.
