 :applaud: :applaud: :applaud: GREAT WORK!!!  :applaud: :applaud: :applaud:

It's nice to see someone put a professional touch on things.  :burgerking:

There were many, thoroughly justified, compliments on your wiring job/art.  :afro:

...but, it seems people weren't too sure where to get the good stuff.  I am new to the arcade owning/building scene, but I have been putting watercooled computers together for about 6 years now(oh the crappy setups in the beginning years :banghead:) and i have completely rewired every wire on a power supply (before the buggers came out with that cool modular stuff  :badmood:) so, i really appreciate how good your wiring comes out.  :notworthy:

oh yeah, the point...  :blah: ...I get most of my wire and sleeving, both of which can be ordered as UV reactive, from www.frozencpu.com

no, I don't owe them money nor do I work for them.  I just have been buying stuff from there for a long time and some of my other online modding sources have gone out of business lately  :cry:


EDIT: They have these things called "wire saddles" that could help almost anyone have a neat wiring job like Knievel... well, I still like his better, but these make it  :censored: close   :afro:

Knievel - almost to the point of being able to assemble my woody clone cab.  I have all the peices cut out except for the control panel box. 

I'm curious on a couple things, how did you connect the admin panel / monitor bracket later on?  Pocket screws?

I have the admin panel already cut out and after drilling for the four buttons, I'm thinking of applying some edge banding and using a biscuit on each side and some glue.  I saw  you used biscuits elsewhere.

What are you using as the black ring material in the speaker cutouts?   Is that edge banding?  I have rectangular speakers I'm going to use, possibly cut a recess down into the wood like you did, leave a small lip I want to get black.

Thanks!

Knievel,

Would you be willing to post some rough dimensions of The Woody? My wife is OK with the MAME machine idea, but she doesn't care for a monster sized cabinet. Quite frankly she's right as it wouldn't really 'gel' with our house. We think The Woody is pretty close to what would fit nicely with the space we have available.

If anyone else has dimensions of slim cabinets that would be great as well. I appreciate any help anyone can give.

Thanks!

FYI - that top dimension should be 16-1/4"

I know from experience.

Really?  I think I cut mine at 15 1/4"  I'll have to go back and look.  The angles looked like they were correct at 15 1/4".

Maybe I messed up somewhere but the top of the one I built is definitely 16-1/4".  It is the only possible way to get the front of the marquee area perpendicular to the ground and in line with the back of the control panel area...

Mine is 15 1/4".  How long is the angled length on yours where the monitor goes? Mine is pretty much exactly 24".  The length is not shown on Kneivel's spec sheet.

Do you know what the angles are in degrees on the back to the top?  I think mine was 100 degrees, and using an angle tool I was able to check the top part where the marquee was, and it was 80 - so it lined up properly to be perpendicular to ground.  I don't think it is supposed to line up to the back of the control panel looking at the side view Kneivel posted.  However, I think that's a good looking design either way.

By looking at your wiring pics am I correct in saying that you choose to solder everything to the switches rather than using disconnects?

It definitely makes it look cleaner that way but what happens when you have to replace a switch once it gets worn out? Would you just splice and resolder it?

I'd have to check - to be honest, it was the only dimension that didn't match the plans so I just assumed that it was a typo.  Everything else was exact - the 7" under the marquee area, the 90 degree bend (which is a PAIN for the t-molding), etc.  I did assume the marquee lined up with the back of the CP which could throw it off.  It doesn't matter though - got any pics of yours??

I would agree it doesn't really matter, the design will look great either way.

I'm going to drill my admin buttons today, hopefully make the cuts for the speakers soon, and then I'll be able to start assembly of my cabinet.

Well, I finally bought some plywood this weekend and I'm thinking about giving one of these a shot... anyway, one quick question before I begin - how wide is this cabinet?  (with or without the 3/4" thick sides - just please specify which dimension you are giving).  I didn't see it posted in this thread.  Thanks!!   :cheers:


23 1/2" ID, 25" overall with 3/4" sides.

Good Luck! :)

Love your cabinets Knievel, currently building one based of your ever popular Neon,
though I must confess, if id seen the Evolution first, I would probably be building that instead  ;D

Just wondering how you attach the Control Panel to the CP box?
Do you just glue/screw/biscut and hope to never have to open it again? Or do you use hinges/catches or something else?

If anyone else knows the answer that would be very helpful, thanks

He used velcro to hold it down and a credit card to separate when needed.

I've tried this before and I ended up switching to latches to hold the CP in place.  The velcro holds really really well but I found that over time the CP would move ever so slightly when playing with the velcro holding it in place.  It was making me nuts so I installed 4 latches (the kind that keep a cocktail cabinet shut) and it hasn't budged since.  There's a good chance I wasn't using enough velcro - oh well...  my $0.02.   :cheers:

With a lot of help, I've finally managed to build a version of the Woody with a few tweeks this weekend, did it all in 2 days (proper mission! Pictures coming soon), but I have a question, how well does the PC cope inside? Does it get really hot? I noticed you've got no vents or fans. I'm thinking of adding some.

I used hinges on my Woody copy and painted them to fit in with the rest of the cab. Looks fine and does the job. Didn't like the velcro idea TBH, as it wears out over time.

Sorry for thread necromancy but this seems the most appropriate place.  I very much like Knievel's woody design and have a first draft of his cabinet done in sketchup.  I wanted to share that sketchup file with any others who were interested.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/208302/RoundedWoody-NoCP.skp

It is only a first draft, no control panel details, a few other pieces omitted for now pending cabinet specific decisions.  I used the dimensions provided in this thread and made assumptions where details were not available.  Should be very close to knievel's actual dimensions.

Bender, I wondered the same thing.  I sent him a PM a while ago but haven't heard back.  Dunno if it's a trade secret of if he just isn't checking his messages.  I know glue bonds are pretty strong, but I'd be surprised if there was NO reinforcement on the whole cabinet. . . ?

If you look closely at the back edge of the cab side in the first picture of this thread you can see the slots that have been cut for the biscuits.

It's definitely biscuits.  That's how I held mine together and it is rock solid.
