Hello,

Like so many i started to build a cab. I read a lot of topics and saw so many pictures and many great designs and decided i needed one for myself.

I based my cab on the design of global arcade classics.
I got the idea from Valiantīs topic
http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=78496.0



I like the round shapes and lines, modern and still classic  :)

I don't have saints book on cabs, so i learned everything from this forum.
Cheers for all of you !  :cheers:

I took the measurements from cabs i liked from this forum for height and width etc.

Also i must note, i never worked with wood in my life.
But you people explained everything so clearly, it made it almost made it look to easy  ;)

So my design will look like the global arcade classics cab but with a costum street fighter arcade design.

Street Fighter II was my all time favorite. I still remember me beating all people who challenged me when i was a kid playing the game. Someone just inserted a coin and challenged me, then i just played as chun li and beat him with only movement and high punch !  ;D So now i need a cab to get my skills back, last time i played it i couldn't even beat ken  :angry: Good excuses for a mame cab!

Also it will be for my son  :applaud:

Ok lets get started on this build !

I life in a apartment, so i can only work on the balcony witch is 4 x 3 Meter
Size matters but i still wanted a CRT screen for more authentic feeling.

I got a Sony trinitron 25" flatscreen TV for nothing and in very good state


opened her up and checked out the guts


The TV has nice shielded 2 x 15 watt speakers and a subwoofer which i can use for sound


I discharged the tv the propper way and removed the mainboard and gave the tv a good clean



That's enough for the tv part for now.

Behold my working space for this cab !!!  :hissy:



I have bought many tools people used for the build. And a router with bits. Never seen or used a router in my life !

I will be using 1,8cm thick mdf and i want to laminate instead of paint.



Drawn on scale from a math piece of paper  :P

Finished cutting the first side to shape , i did this with a circle saw and a long straight piece of wood as routing, the round shape i did with electrical hand saw



Now its time to cut out the second side, i placed the first side on a piece of mdf and drawn the shape.



Time to flush the 2 sides with a router and sanding machine





twin sides  :cheers:



T-molding time  :angel:

I had to browse the internet for 2 hours and drive for 2 hours back and forth to get the slot cutting bit  :censored:







Done t-molding", that was easy  :applaud:

Now its time for holders to take their place. Maybe i used to thick wood, but then it would be stronger i guessed.





I measured all the wooden panels i needed and went to the local do it yourself shop and have let them cut to size.

Then i assembled the cab for the first no-glue-only-screw prototype build





I cut a controll panel to size





That's it for posting now. Also Waveryder will be creating artwork for me. ill post some examples soon

I like it. Nice cab. Good choice on going with a street fighter theme. I like your design more than the global arcade classics cause your control panel isnt angled as much.

Beautiful job so far. Wish to good I had the woodworking skills. I would love to "scratch build" a cab for a change. Whats the sound like out of those TV speakers? I always replace built ins with a good set of amped PC speakers.

Yep, very nice quality sound.
I listened to some music channels and played my good old snes console on it for a bit with sf2 cartridge  :angel: and sounded great for me, also they can be pretty LOUD .

I wondered if if should place the subwoofer part in wood instead of this plastic case, would it make any difference..  :dunno

looking good.

if you need any help with the artwork, lemme know. I've got a ton of street fighter artwork on my hard drive.

Im planning on building a dedicated street fighter cab next summer. So your project just inspires me more so.

I really like the angle of your control panel. I think it makes the cabinet look better than the original.

thanks for the offer but waveryder is helping me out on this one  :)

And also thanks for all of your complements.


Small update..

i installed some wheels for movement, they are in the back and i placed them so that they wouldn't touch the wall



reinforced with 2 pieces of pine wood and glue and screws from the sides and bottom

Ah there is my pencil  :P



as you can see, it doesnt touch the edge of the wall

Saturday - Update Time  ;D

Without further adue, the marquee courtesy of Waveryder  :notworthy:



I love the freshness of the colors and the street fighter hd themed chars.
And of course my favorite char Chun Li  :angel:

Sideart is also in progress  :)

So time for some woodworking update.

I smoothed out the back corner of the wood, i want to bend the laminate the same way.



OK, its time to make a TV frame so i can place it at the right angle.

Here we see the TV naked without motherboard



Drawn out the frame in size



And placed and reinforced the frame, glue and screws to help out.



This was a hard part, the tv weights a ton and nobody was there to help. so i decided to put the cab on his side and place the tv inside and measured a million times to get it right, the frame was a tight fit so it would not fall. After 1 hour of measuring the angle and dept and width etc i placed 2 pine wood bars in the back



I know this could be done better but i found it worked great if you build a cab from scratch with your own measurements.

He's up again with tv placed  :notworthy:











Ok enough of that  ;D

I build a little table under the tv to hold the tv motherboard and give more stability to the cab.



Now i tested my measuring skills for the dept of the tv  :P



That's what i call tight fit :)



Phew, that was a difficult and heavy job. Lifting that thing in and out and being carefull not to break the tv. But very satisfying

Next up a monitor frame  :applaud:

Done some more work, i created a tv frame and marquee frame

and rough speaker holes ( will be laminated Mountain style  ;D )



Here's a shot of the drawn out holes for the speaker grill.





Speaker grill 4 x , i will use 2 for the speakers and 2 on the top for air flow + silent fans







Fits nice  :angel:

I also made same holes on the top piece for 2 airflow holes, forgot to take pictures of that.



Next up coin box !  :cheers:

laminating the inside was hard, because the pine wood holders where already in place and if you laminate it, you cant see the drill holes anymore. so i just cut to size what i needed to laminate, problem them was that it was 0,9mm thick laminate and its hard to cut, also bending is a problem so my nice curve on back plate will be turned into a 45 angle one.

P.s. any visual updates on your cab? i have been looking at your cab even before i started mine, and am eager to see it !

Little update.

I placed the coin box i ordered from Happ Controls (UK) and 1 EURO coin acceptance, i still need 1 euro logo for the coin display, and i want to original red coin return buttons.

Oh the t-molding you see is just for fun, i ordered many 1 meter samples  ;D









I made a little bonus to the second player return button on the happ coin box.

i added a microswitch so its a secret coin button  :cheers:



and when you push the second player return coin button



My little secret  8)

still looking good. I'd go with the red t-molding...but thats just me. Or you could do red on one side (with matching stick & buttons) and blue on the 2nd player side.

Just more inspiration to get my cabinet started.

Well, I am tweeking all the artwork. I am going a bit overboard I think, so will be just getting it sent of to Scott in the week as it is effectively done. I am having a little bit of a problem with an inside measurement of the bezel part as it goes at a different angle from the profile. I will update my thread later to show you what I mean.

Sorting out the laminate too.

Also, just waiting on Randy to get back to me so that I can make my GGG order! I have given myself a cutting time of mid October so keep checking!

Great progress so far and I love the Marquee! Looks mega sweet!

It is 2 player but the CP is detachable so at some point I may make one that "wraps around" the cab, something similar to varsity club, just more compact.

Can't wait to see the artwork. If you want me to give some suggestions will be more than willing to help/advise! I know the feeling with artwork, and it is such an important feature of a cab in my eyes as it can really make or break it! (no pressure... lol!)

sure any ideas or sketches are always welcome :)

...Small update...

I created a Vga -> Scart (RGB) cable + audio input + scart/rgb detection cable.





I know, the ducktape isn't nice but i didn't have any big shrinking cable, inside everything is shrinked and isolated :)

I will use Soft15KHz with a Ati or Nvidia card. What is better?  ???

I did found out some limitation (resolution) on some older nvidia drivers, but i don't know if that has been solved already

MORE UPDATE  :cheers:

I finally got my laminate, i had to drive for 1 hour to see some examples and my car broke down half way  :angry:

Got there just in time before the closed, i selected 4 sheets of 150x300x0,09 CM 45 euro (67 USD) a sheet

It was the thinest i could find. So i ordered it and got it with 1 week, but they send me white instead of black  :banghead:

The driver took it back and a week later i finally got my laminate in my apartment, the sheets where way to big to handle so i cuted them up in size outside first, cutting this material was a mess, it was never a clean cut , always breaking where i cutted.  :(



This material is real tough, it hardly scratches  :angel:

I first cut out the parts that where visible on the inside, but since i already placed the pine wood holders, i couldn't laminate the inside completely. I tried to cut the part from one piece for the inside part, but that was impossible, then i cuted it to shape in pieces that was not visible.

After gluing and routering the edges i got my visible inside laminated.



I also laminated the coin box part and then put the whole thing back together.





I started on the speaker holes like Mountain did

http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=77911.msg814939#msg814939

Drawn a template to size i wanted



Then centered the lines on all sides on the template



Centered the speaker holes



We got holes :)



Here is a picture of the speaker plate, you don't see white edges like on the picture







i laminated the back piece what would have been a round edge to a 45 angle edge, because the laminate would not bend  :-\





Picture of the top plate







That's it for now

Next up laminating the sides

how difficult is it to laminate the pieces? Also whats usually the cost for laminating the whole cab?

I'm torn between laminating and painting my cab project.

not that hard, you need glue and a glue roller , roll both sides with glue then apply the sheet. and keep pressure on it for some time. after that, rout with the router flush bit the edges of  and i sand it again afterwards (the sides)

4 sheets a 45 euro ( i could have done it with 3 sheets)
2 pots of glue a 40 euro a pot
roller a 3 euro
router + bit can vary of quality choice.
