Where did you get those bearings and brackets?

Thanks!  the bearings and brackets are from a bearing wholesaler - they mainly sell to the automotive market.  I had to find something that was strong and wouldn't wobble, not a even a little bit, it has to support the 21" NEC LCD Monitor which is a heavy pro unit.  The shaft will be attached by direct drive to a stepper motor controlled by PC.  When a game is chosen in the front end (Mamewah) a small app will turn the monitor through 90 degrees.  Well thats the theory anyhow.  I have researched the stepper motor side of things a fair bit...there are motors that are torque matched to the weight  and will mount onto the frame nicely....

What's the screen type?

The monitor is an 21.1" NEC Model LCD2090Uxi SpectraView 2090   , they are expensive, three times the price of my Samsung WS 22"! (my wife says " that should have been our new fridge!") it weighs 9.7Kg or 21.3 lbs.  specs are here http://nec.com.au/d7e13d2711994bce83257e3563aa225e.htm

1600x1200 native res will be used for Mamewah front end and any games that support it.  Mame just uses video hardware stretch as you know.

Why did I spend so much?  well, big 4:3 LCDmonitors are getting reaaly hard to find now....the fridge will hafta wait  ;D

I love the Mame cab idea AND that monitor! I'm going to have to get one of my friends in the States to pick a refurbished one up for me.

Definitely a thread to watch.

The best deal in that segment is still the Samsung 214T I believe.

Hey wow, there are other dudes with rotating designs here!.....I'm in the right place yeah?

Indeed you are.

Off the top of my head you should look up:

- Weisshaupts "Ghost in the Machine" project
- Cornchip's project
- DaOldMan's rotating project
- Psychotech's "Yet another Take" project
- Danny Galaga's cocktail project
- Koz's project
- Edge's project  (He used bearings from Grainger very similar to what you have!)

I've linked a few of these projects in my thread linked here in my sig.

Your design is very cool.  I too am interested mainly in the bearings.. anything you can post about part numbers, where to order, how the motor interfaces, etc.  Software wise, DaOldMan is knocking out a command line program with a plugin for MaLa to rotate via the Parallel port.  You should be able to rotate with this software from Mamewah as well.  It's still being beta tested currently, but it's pretty much ready to go.

Nice design skills!  Thanks for sharing with the forum!

The CP panel is interchangeable, there will be other configurations.  I have to come up with a simple docking system for connections so that the panel basically just lifts out.  Another great reason to be on the forum -so many ideas!

Wow! Really really impressive design. I love the plywood curves. I've been planning similar curves for the top and back of my project and thought I'd have to brace them quite a bit more than what I see you've done. Are the unbraced portions of the curves relatively solid?

It's great to see the envelope being pushed. I'm just amazed at what people have been doing around here lately. The production value of these projects keeps ratcheting higher.

I love this design! Very space saving but completely different! And it really does look "arcadey" still!

But why did you not make this bad boy 2 player? You could easily fit another joy a 6 buttons on there!

Loving the wood bending! And the thing looks sturdy as hell, more so than so of the fat boys I have seen on here!

Looks great. Amazing how the render looks quite fragile, but the build shows it should be quite sturdy.

(you can never have too many clamps!  ;D)

Amen to that!!



Maybe it's the angle on this picture, but the hole for the joystick looks smallish to me.  Is it smaller than the typical button-sized holes?  How much smaller?

The cabinet looks truly amazing so far, not to mention unique!

The joystick hole is smaller than typical button sized holes, but the plate is rebated underneath for the joystick unit, so where it mounts is only about 5mm thick.  The hole allows complete x /y movement of the stick i.e. it doesnt touch it even if you try and force it!  Thanks for compliment btw.

I was just impressed by how clean the smaller hole made the joystick area look, even without a dust washer on it.  With the details that neat, it's no wonder the project is looking so great!
