Are you talking about this file?
You can download the MCX file here...  http://www.unstupid.com/myfiles/MsPacCocktail.zip
A few notes:

- There is no table top piece.  That was cut separately on a 1" piece of ply.  Although there is space for the tabletop on this sheet if you are ok with it being 3/4" thick
There are 5 tool changes.
1- 1/8" flat bit to drill bolt holes for the vents and speaker grills also to cut out the C14 receptacle.
2- 1/4" chamber bit to scribe the lines where i need to drill 3/8" holes with the doweling jig in the side of the plywood
3- 1/4" flat bit drill out the 3/8" holes for the dowels (using a helix bore toolpath)
4- 3/8" compression bit to cut the holes, coindoor and finally the panel edges
5- 1/8" flat to clean up the inside radiuses on any internal 90degree cuts.

Archive.org has it.   :cheers:

Did this work?  Did you ever get these plans cut and assembled?

I've been thinking about a Midway cocktail for a project this year... not sure where to start.  eBay and Craigslist are ridiculous wanting like $2000 for completely trashed cabinets.  I have the Kyle Lidstrom plans but not sure I'm up for building it from scratch myself.  I could do it but it would take a lot longer than I would want it to take.  All the flat packs I've seen online aren't accurate.  Arcadeshop sells one but it has been out of stock forever.  Haruman makes one but it's out of 1/2" material.  So I'm just poking around... perfect CNC plans would be nice if I can find someone local to cut it out.

If you already have a tube to work with then design your own and cut it by hand!

Yes, you can...
Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools! I can fix it.

It's a nice thought but I want an "original" Midway for this project.  Could be a replica but it would have to be very accurate.  Other than a DK, which I already have, it is my (extremely common) holy grail.  We used to go to Lake George for vacation with my grandparents when I was a kid and the smoke-filled lounge had a Ms. Pac-Man that I would pump quarters into for a week straight every summer.

No way-

My mom's family is from Port Henry/ Mineville area so I know the zone.
I may have been to that same joint in Lake George!
We'd hit the Great Escape once a summer too on our way up from MD and CT.

I do like the idea of the simplicity of an original cabinet also.
I wonder how much it would cost to get one of what Scott unearthed cut.

Maybe someday!

Hey sorry , but this is an old old topic i didnt knew it needed my atention. Anyway, i ended up  using https://www.classicarcadecabinets.com/galaga-cocktail.html plans, the only downsize is they are like a bit smaller than the original design, still a good size cab, fits a 19/21 monitor withuot the frame. I built like 5 cabs with those plans, they all came out perfect. If you decide to use this plans, keep in mind they are also designed for 1/2 inch wood, since i used 3/4 i had to modify the sides of the control panels holders to be 1 inch more tall, so the joystick would not get stuck with the glass. My english is limited so let me know if you need more explanaition.
