Looking for bartop design
« on: November 26, 2021, 10:53:53 am »
I'm build a new home bar area and I'll have a TV behind the car. For a little fun I'm going to build a small 2 player raspberry pi game.

I'm looking to see if someone had the real specs for somthing like this

or this - https://www.reddit.com/r/RetroPie/comments/a7oniq/donkey_kong_themed_bar_stick_arcade_machine

Anyone with some insight? I'm going to get a local shop to build it for me for a few reasons.
1) Support Local.
2) My last build didn't go as plan
3) i may just give a few nephews a similar build and see #1


Thanks

In a previous life,  I was the designer of the "barstick".  I wrote up some notes on the KADE forums which are available on wayback machine here:

https://web.archive.org/web/20160826064217/http://kadevice.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=325&sid=974d29dde242837119d3b7e021bf551d

The CNC plans are available for download on this page:

The design was based on the popular Weecade bartop build.  I chopped out the middle section of the bartop.  Plans and information about that are also available for download via above link.

Good luck with your build.

Last I knew, Bruno (bootsector) had forum backup files at least as current as the last domain change to kadevice.tk in Aug 2017.

Just before that change, I manually saved the attachments and .HTML copies of the threads.

LMK the sub-forum and thread name or filename if you need anything that wasn't captured by the Internet Wayback Machine.   :cheers:

Thanks PL1. I'm going to take the drawing to a local C&C guy and see if he can replicate it.

I'm not sure I could build such a thing. The wiring and software side, sure.  Power Tools,  not so sure about that :)
