Specs:
Hardware:

Fits a Horizontal 17" 4:3 LCD monitor nicely.  Can fit a Horizontal 19" 4:3 LCD, but it's tight.  17" is the recommended size.
With a 17" monitor, a microATX motherboard, ATX power supply, and standard 3.5" hard drive fit.

Control and Admin Panels:

Comes in 2 options, drilled or undrilled.
Drilled has a standard 6 button Street Fighter layout, with 2 buttons for start and coin.  Admin panel has 3 buttons drilled.  Hole sizes are 1.15" diameter and will fit Happ buttons.
If you want a different layout, order the undrilled.  I have found that a 2 player 6-button layout MAY fit, but would be very cramped.  2 player 4-button is less so.
Control panel dimensions are: 17.72" X 6.19"

Monitor mount panel:

Drilled for both 75 X 75 and 100 X 100 VESA mounts

Speaker Panel:

Drilled holes for 2 speakers, hole pattern is 3.79" in diameter.

Overall Dimensions:

Height: 21.43"
Depth: 18.6"
Width: 18.72"

Weight:

Melamine kit only: ~21 lbs

Basic assembly instructions:

Lay out one side flat, pocket cuts up:

(http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=103207.0;attach=279491;image)

Fill each of the five 1/4" deep pockets with a liberal amount of wood glue.  Don't be stingy.  Insert each of the tabbed panels into the deep pockets:

(http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=103207.0;attach=279493;image)

Place the other side on top (with NO glue yet), aligning the tabs into the slots:

(http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=103207.0;attach=279495;image)

Place a heavy weight on top, wipe up the excess glue with a damp paper towel.  Wait for an hour or so.

After the hour or so has passed, take the weight off the cabinet, and carefully remove the unglued side.  Place the unglued side down, fill the five 1/4" pockets with a liberal amount of glue, and carefully guide the tabs into place.  Again, set a weight on the assembled cabinet, wipe up the excess glue with a wet paper towel, and leave for ~24 hours in a warm place.

Couple of other views:

(http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=103207.0;attach=279602;image)

Once completed and dry, lay the bartop face down (marquee & control panel area closest to the ground).

Once down, place the plexiglass inside, one side will rest on the back of the speaker panel, the other side will rest on the batons for the control panel.

Attach the monitor to the VESA mount panel using M4-.07 machine screws (25mm length).  Place the monitor & panel inside the bartop resting on the plexiglass.  Adjust the placement so the monitor is visible.  Use the included angle brackets to attach the panel to the inside of the cabinet.

* NOTE : The included screws with the brackets are a little too long and will poke out of the cabinet if you use them as is.  You either need shorter screws or use some spacers (like washers).


(http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=130522.0;attach=292317;image)

Usually the monitor is enough to hold the bezel plexiglass in place.

For the marquee plexiglass, you can find aliminum L channel at Home depot, cut to size, and paint.  There are also places online that stock black plastic L channel.  You will need a piece for top and bottom.

HaRuMaN has hooked me up with V1 and V2 (pickup tomorrow  :gobama). Super trustworthy. I know the work that goes in to getting these done, sorting the parts, packing them up, and shipping them out, and this is totally worth it.

Thanks.  I had to hunt around for a CNC service that were reasonable, the first two I contacted wanted between $200 & $250.  That almost killed the project dead in the water.  Glad I kept looking, though.

very interested. have so many questions

are custom sizes available or would they be just one size?
how wide, high, deep are they?
what kind of screen range would you have with this kit?
what kind of board options would it support? itx, matx, atx etc

At the very least it's a way to get yourself a free CNC machine....

...if you could just manufacture the free time to build one.

Yeah, my CNC guy is fine with smaller runs, too.  As long as he doesn't close up shop (which it doesn't look like he will, he's always busy), I should still be doing this.

These look sweet.  So . . . batons on the CP, and have you done the VESA mount yet?  I'm assuming you would screw in batons and then glue to that?

I can't wait to see people start making these.  I might have to order one or two when I sell something to generate some cash.  Love the finish.

There are fatter batons for the monitor mount.  It's up to the user on where to mount it (due to varying monitor sizes, etc).  I forgot to show the batons in the first set of pics, I'll through them up later.

To be fair, HaRuMaN is doing this as a service to those who don't have the space/tools/knowhow to cut these on their own. He's never passed these off as anything but a precut kit for convenience.
Title: Re: CNC cut Weecade Kits - Ships to continental US
Post by: jammin0 on February 25, 2013, 02:15:47 pm
Unless you're Apple, I don't think you can enforce someone copying the shape of your design.  It's not like there's that much to it.  I could see if HaRuMaN was selling his plans but he's not.  He's providing a service in selling this kit.  There is some serious innovation with the batonless design going on too.

If I were the creator of the Weecade I would just be glad that my name was so commonplace now and that everyone is making them.  Imitation is the highest form of flattery right?  Not that HaRuMaN needs me to defend him.

Width wise it fits, barely.  17.72" available.  Height, you could may get away with it, you may have to shorten up the CP a bit...

Depth might work.  At the edge, you have 1.5" between the speaker panel and the baton for back piece...

Decasing might help, too.

Haruman,

Question on your melamine, is there any reason you went with the particle board?

I've sourced some 3/4 melamine with the MDF core.  It's not available in 5/8 though...

Was it weight?

I'm using 1/2" for these kits, as far as I know, the melamine coated particle board is the only material available in the side. 

The CNC cuts are razor sharp, though.

Pretty tight on those plans, not so bad if he is laser cutting, but routing even with a 1/8" bit is going to be tough without a vacuum bed. There is little to no room for tabs to hold parts in place. That said if he's got a vac bed no problem ;)

He has a 3-phase power CNC rig with a 18HP vacuum bed.  It's quite impressive.

Where you guys getting your 1/2" t-molding from? T-molding.com has two colors available ...white and black.  Are there are other sources available for different colors??

Also...is the cost of the 2 player the same as the one player?? $140

As far as I have found, there is only white or black in 1/2" T-molding.  It may be possible to dye the white using something like RIT dye, I may try to experiment with this at some point.

The wider, 2 player bartop (optimized for a widescreen LCD) base price is $155, slot cutting is $10 extra, and I don't have any polycarbonate available for it.

Sweet!  I just ordered a Vision Pro CGA LCD for it.  I plan on using it mostly as a test rig but also when I feel like playing games in the house when the garage is too cold ;).  Granted, once my kids see it I'll probably have to order another at some point...

hi,

What's the widest that you can make it?  I was reviewing the dimensions and did it change much when it was changed to accommodate the asus monitor.  The layout seems like it should have enough room to give one or two more inches.  Just thinking of more shoulder room for two player games.

Yes, just the wood.  Plexiglass can be included, too.   :cheers:

With the simplified assembly, these kits do save time.

Still working on the plans for the vertical.  I was planning on 19" being the default size, with a 20.1" being a tight squeeze.  Gonna try to have them drawn up by Monday.

I am looking at a new VW246H as I type, will it fit the same as the VH236H? think I am a inch bigger but monitors are weird like that and may be the exact same.

or do you have dimentions for the 2player setup? if this will fit I wll do the 2 player instead of the original just becuase I have this monitor here that may fit perfect already.

22-1/2" X 13-1/2" X 3"-4" depth

it is actually 22-1/4" if the screen overlay is all one peice it could probaby be decased and clear the 1/8" on each side as the plastic itself is probably close to that alone.

now sure how it would look in there with no screen bezel and the display butted right up on the sides of the cab though.

mine would have to come off to fit.

I think I will just stick with the 17" instead I want to keep it small anyhow and I would rather have a more squared off screen then the wide screen.

is there any cheap 17" squared lcd monitors with high res?

call me silly but I dont even know what the 4:3 / 16:9 difference is I know my res's and p/i's though lol.

cab does look good though Malenko and the work looks good too HaRuMaN

my screen is "squared off" its a 4:3 monitor not a 16:9 wide screen. Its a tight fit and not the greatest monitor, but with the SGL rom craftymech its perfect for the application. I didn't buy the monitor that in mine for the application, I am just using parts that are sitting around :)

Im still working out how Im gonna position the guts inside for ease of use and what not.

good to know and not sure how I never knew the difference in the two  :laugh2:

even when I bought this I wanted a 4:3 but went with this vw246H 16:9 and it is great as a pc monitor and hd gaming with 2ms but the classic's look too weird for me on it.

I think a 4:3 with the slg will give me the look I am after though and should be perfect size at 17"

going from the nanao in true 15k to a 16:9 hd just aint the same for me after seeing the two and being use to playing them all native as opposed to now.

Exactly!! I'm not the best with wood tools nor do I have the right tools on hand. Buying wood and all the tools would of cost way more. Plus I would of messed it up or it would of came out crappy. I think the price is perfect. I am very happy with my purchase, cant wait to post some build pics.

Its cost versus worth. For me, I dont have the tools or the time so 140 is a bargain for me. If you have access to the tools and the lumber then you wouldn't be in the market for kit anyway. The 2.0 kits are pretty amazing mang.  And for comparison's sake, there is another guy selling flatpacked bartops for $150 , so its pretty consistent pricing across the board (PUN!)

You're not just paying for wood, you're paying for pre-cut, pre-laminated wood.  If you don't already have woodworking equipment or space to do the cutting, this is a fantastic value.  This is half the price of mameroom's flat-pack bartop kit.

OP: I want to order one but I cannot send PMs (probably because I just registered).  Your flair says you're a mod, can you fix this?

I sent you an email with my order request.  Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

Have you considered a pedestal kit to turn this into a full-size cab?  Four holes in the bottom of the bartop and top of the pedestal plus four sets of bolts/washers/wingnuts would tie everything together nicely, and it would still be easy to break down for transportation.

Thanks, invoice sent.

And that's not a bad idea.  I'll see what I can come up with.  Probably make a "universal" one, so it could go with the standard or the wide bartop.  I'll probably work on plans for that after I finish the vertical cabinet plans.

Payment sent.  Couple questions:

Do you (or anybody else) have any pics of the 2-player version assembled?  What kind of room do we have to work with for the PC?  Will a microATX board and standard PSU fit, or do we have to get a nanoITX board and external PSU?  Is there enough room vertically for a full-height video card?  Is there room to drill in another pair of button holes (2 rows of 4 total) for both players? Do you happen to know where I stuck the box of arcade controls I bought 12 years ago?

Mount the monitor to the VESA mount board, place cabinet on side, put monitor + mount inside.

I used blue painters tape to mark where the mount should go.  Took the monitor off the mount, placed the mount back inside (no monitor), drilled and installed screws.   :cheers:

I think it would be a great idea for those that have very limited space but still want the arcade experience. 

I for one would buy this!!  Its an excellent design by Degenatrons of the KADE Team, and I think he would be open to others using it, but I want to ask for his consent first.  If he allows this to be used, would you do it?  Any one else interested?

Howdy!  First time poster here.  I ran into this forum by following a link in the KADE forum.  And I got to say, thank you for making this kit available to us.  It looks great!  Im wondering if you could make a kit of this stand alone bar-stick:

http://kadevice.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=325 (http://kadevice.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=325)

I think it would be a great idea for those that have very limited space but still want the arcade experience. 

I for one would buy this!!  Its an excellent design by Degenatrons of the KADE Team, and I think he would be open to others using it, but I want to ask for his consent first.  If he allows this to be used, would you do it?  Any one else interested?

Once again, thank you

Hey, if Degenatrons is cool with it, I wouldn't mind adapting it for my CNC guy.   :cheers:

Hey,  these plans are open and I'm cool for you to make use of them and improve them as you see fit.  Great if you can contribute to make it better and to move the project forward.   Idea is to have the barstick thing compatible with the weecade bartop so the control panel and marquee can be easily interchanged and reused on a portable unit.

Any chance of a Verticade kit?

I've been looking at options to play with vertical games.  I already have a full-size Blast City cabinet for horizontal games, but I'd like to have a true four-way joystick with a vertical monitor for games like Donkey Kong and Pac Man.  I have a Dell 1905 FP that I'd like to put in vertically with a scanline generator. :)

Some thing like the design I linked below, with a rotating monitor would eliminate the need for separate (horizontal/vertical) cabs.  I do think it could look better and control panel seems too close to the monitor, but I like the idea!

1/2" T-molding, 20 ft.   :cheers:

Unfortunately only comes in black or white at that size, but I've been thinking about picking up some white and attempting to dye it using RIT dye.

Post by: candre23 on May 02, 2013, 03:44:16 pm
Possibly easier/more consistant than dye is SEM color coat spray paint: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&N=-1&isNodeId=1&Description=sem+color+coat&x=-889&y=-112 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&N=-1&isNodeId=1&Description=sem+color+coat&x=-889&y=-112)

It's very flexible and durable, so it will not flake off like most paint when you bend the molding.  I've used it for painting RC car bodies, and it's great.

@ Ginsu Victim- Im new to this forum and I did not want to insult the original creator (in case he's a member here  ;) ).  But I have to agree with you, hence "it could look better."  I just really liked the idea of a rotating monitor, so I posted.

Did you look for 1/2" T-molding here (http://www2.archpro.com/cgi-bin/worderc?confc=B2C&s=105-667-*&catalog=120129&target=top)?

105-667 comes in multiple colors, but they say 250 ft roll in one spot, but make it look like it can be ordered by the foot on the order page...

if it's a 250 ft minimum, any group of 10 people want to split a roll of red with me?  :laugh:

Interior dimensions on the 2P version - is it exactly 22", or is there a little wiggle room?  I found a 24" 1080p LED TV with a vesa mount that's 22.08" x 14.31", and I'm hoping that will fit.

EDIT: Ordered it anyway.  $135 shipped was too good a deal not to take a bit of a gamble.  Lets hope it fits.

Anybody know if the 1/2" particle board is beefy enough for blind hole inserts for mounting the joysticks, ore are through-bolts necessary?

I know it was mention prior and I wanted to see what these would kinda look like on a stand and checked ebay and they had some stands that made them look more like a full size.

if you were considering them and if it were me I would rather have a stand where the stand is larger at the base where the bartop itself would fit into the stand.

that way the whole thing just looks like a desk when not in use, maybe throw granny's fancy doyley over it etc.  :laugh2:

it would keep it put away looks clean dust free and could be locked with a tumbler lock and key perhaps too.

Post by: northerngames on May 04, 2013, 08:09:55 pm
you would have to ask those that are interested or perhaps email some off ebay and ask them why they bought them over a full a cab.

me I can't tell ya what others were thinking but perhaps maybe they dont have the room for a full size cab or cabs but it dont seem like a bad optional piece to those that do want them as it was mentioned prior already.

asking that is kinda like the bartop itself and the same silly question would apply.. why that over a full cab then?

but now onto me personally I already have a full 26" nanao cab and a 39" showcase and I now want a bartop becuase either of them will fit in my pc/lab/mancave.

but I would think if it were me and they were available instead of the bartop hoggin a shelf or pc desk it is now in the corner inside the base with a monitor or shelf on top of it so no space is lost now becuase I can put something on it if it were me though.

a slide out keyboard drawer would not hurt the looks for it all either and give it more of a desk look.

sure the showcase would fit but is also would be like parking the truck in the living room.

another good example is if you only own a car it's a ---smurfette--- driving down the road with it on the roof  :cheers:

another example have you ever tackled and tugged a full size cab up your 2 flights of apartment stairs at 56 years old all by yourself without a scratch to either?

just a couple reasons why some may want one off the top of my head for ya.

in the end it comes down to prefference of the end user friend and there is already a market for them apperently.

The main reason for bartops/desktops is a lack of floor space. If you're going to build something big enough to house the bartop, then I still think that makes the floor space argument moot. But whatever. Create away.

Are pedestals still in your master scheme?  Think you said maybe after the vertical bartop.

Yes, they are.  Plans for the vertical are almost done, pedestal to follow.   :cheers:

Just out of curiosity, any features you'd like to see in a pedestal?

I forget, how much t-molding is needed?  Thanks.

20 feet, you'll end up with a little extra.

Stability would be high up...hyper kids.  Other than that not too picky.  Two player/6 buttons each/trackball.  Coin door slot would be very nice.  Maybe an area for hidden admin buttons.

Is there any way we could get a couple of more pictures explaining the final steps of finishing off the control panel, back panel and monitor mount panel.

I can't figure out how the control panel top will be secured. Same with the back panel. I'm also a little confused about the new metal hardware for the versa panel.

Maybe a little more in depth pics and description would help?

(I have the 2 player widescreen version)

Btw the packing was impeccable!

I'm still trying to figure out how I am going to do my CP to. Maybe instead of gluing in the bottom have both pieces one piece with a hinge at the bottom?

I was looking at hinges at Home Depot that allow a overlay but it seemed like you would need to dig into the sides to much, plus the mounting area look big and may get in the way.

My primary concern is being able to access the underside of the buttons later (where the wiring is) there's not a whole lot of room there. So ideally a way to easily remove or access the CP underside would work great.

A simple way to make the control panel removable is to make access holes in the bottom panel and secure control panel from the underside.
A quick sketch to help explain what I'm talking about:

(http://i.imgur.com/WkzmObb.jpg)

This makes for a sturdy fix with no visible screws.

The small semicircular cutouts can then be used to plug the holes on the underside if required.

Consider updating the CNC plans to include the access holes in the bottom panel.

I would like to modify them a bit (if you don't mind) to fit a 20.1" 4:3 Dell 2001FP while retaining the 2 person control layout, and I'm afraid the 1 person design is just a bit too small for that sort of application.

Screen plexi for me is held in with friction, bottom rests against the top of the control panel, the top is between the screen and the speaker panel. Marquee I use aluminum L brackets from Home Depot. a 36" piece is like 3 bucks. cut it into 2 17.75" pieces, drill holes for screws and mount. I also painted them gun metal grey.

This is a version 1.0 kit (with batons and no melamine):
(http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=103207.0;attach=281951;image)

I did the same technique to put plexi over the control panel. But for this monitor, since its a touch screen, the plexi is lag bolted into the LCD bezel.

Perhaps HaRuMaN can chime in, but it looks like as long as the circled edges are lengthened a few inches (along with the curve) it should be able to accommodate a 20 inch 4:3 screen.  This would also allow for a bezel rather than running right up to the edge, no offense Malenko. The next issue is fitting as much onto a sheet of melamine, but at the bare minimum it should be possible to fit 3 total cabinets onto 2 sheets.  Would anyone else be interested in this size if it was an option?

What I did works best for her touchscreen based machine, and by best I mean it works and wasnt a pain. I did the same thing with my dreamcast based machine to fit the 20" monitor I put in there. The plans are community based, so anyone who wants to improve on it could and should.

The next change I was going to discuss with Haruman was adding a bottom panel to the back and making the back door smaller (similar to the top part of the V2 backdoor) so you can run power wires or USB ports and not have them be part of the door.

The edges are covered with T-molding or other pieces of the cabinet that are covered with the Melamine so that the exposed edges shown in the default cabinet are not shown when assembled. IF not using T-molding you could also buy strips of black Melamine edging which is backed with glue so it can be added to the edges and then trimmed to make a clean edge. For Example This ( http://www.amazon.com/home-improvement/dp/B00315PNAI (http://www.amazon.com/home-improvement/dp/B00315PNAI) ) which has 25 feet of 7\8" edging for about $8.

So its a modified 2 player weedcade that fits a 20.1" 4:3 Dell 2001FP screen? I might be interested  :)

That's my goal at least.  I'd like to implement a few changes to the 2P design:

1: Increase height to allow for 20.1" 4:3, while leaving the width the same to keep the 2P setup.  A 20.1" screen would have a ~3" bezel, a 19" would have a ~3.5" bezel
2: Ideally the height would be added using Malenko's idea of a bottom panel in the back of the cabinet, so any wiring would not need to go through the door
3: Add a piano hinge between the 2 back panels, possibly with an arcade cabinet style lock at the top to hold the door shut?
4: Implement degenatrons' method of attaching the CP using holes in the underside of the cabinet, and screwing into tee nuts in the bottom of the CP.
5: Retain the current 2P footprint so that this taller "not-so-weecade" is compatible with any pedestal that is designed for the 2P "weeweecade"

I am new at this arcade building thing and I have been reading up (and watching youtube videos) on how to build an arcade machine.  The hardest part for me is the wiring the buttons.  Is there anyway that you can sell the cabinet with preinstalled buttons on the panel which is hooked up with an ipac (etc...) so that all I have to do is build a computer with working hyperspin/games and all I have to do is just plug in and play?

IF you use an Ipac or similar encoder the wiring is actually very simple -- Just a matter of running a daisy chain wire with connectors for each button switch to the ground connector of each button and then to the ground connection on the Ipac - and then one wire each to the NO (normally Open) connection on the switch and back to the correct connector on the IPAC (ie. Up switch on 1P joystick to 1 Player Up connection on the Ipac) Just take your time and run one wire at a time and you wont have any problems with doing it. On the button switches there are 3 connection points - 1 for the ground - 1 NO and 1 NC - you connect only 2 of them ( The Ground and the NO) If you hook it up to the NC and ground instead of NO the button will always be sending a pressed signal except when you press the button which is not want you want so do not use that connector (it is labelled on the switch).

It really is a lot easier than you think because there are so many connections that looking at a completed panel looks difficult but when wiring it one connection at a time it is actually fairly simple. If you can do the Computer setup you'lll have No Problem  wiring the CP !

I have never wire the buttons before so that is why I thought it is difficult.  I can build a top-of-the-line desktop computer completely from scratch in under 30 minutes so I guess I can give it a try. 

Thanks

I like using something like these male power socket connectors that feed into a smart strip.

Woodworking newb here. What's the best way to cut the wood for this? I tried drilling a hole big enough for a coping saw, but it was a bit slow going. I ended up going with a Dremel sanding wheel, and cut off too much on one side, so it doesn't look the greatest ...  :badmood: :badmood:

Fortunately this was a piece of scrap I was practicing on.

Did you not use the two other pieces of wood that was included for the vesa mount board?

In the original instructions there are two pieces of wood to glue to the vesa panel then mount, I can't tell if you still used these and they're on the other side of yours or not.

No I didn't use them. Typically they form a U around the monitor, but the monitor I used was too big for that (20" 4:3 monitor) so instead of those 2 pieces of wood I used the metal corner braces.

Thanks again for the photos. Just a warning for anyone else using these brackets: the screws included are too long and when I mounted my monitor the screw tip came through the wall of the cabinet. So I recommend finding slightly shorter screws on your own and not using the ones included.

Is there any place that sells 1/2" t-molding that has different colors instead of just black or white?

I just realized that gamemolding.com only offers black or white color in 1/2" size :-(


Also, do you guys take the bezel/covering of the monitor off to save space or do you just mount the monitor in its original form?

Unfortunately, 1/2" T-molding only comes in black or white.  I've been meaning to buy some white and attempt to dye it to see if I can get some different colors that way.

I left my monitor (17" 4:3) intact.

I planned to put a touch screen monitor in this bartop arcade.

However, I don't know a solution to getting a border that would be flush with the monitor.  Normally you have a plexiglass in front of the monitor to protect it but since it is a touch screen and I will be playing some games with touch screen capability (using Windows 8 with PC games), I don't think that putting a plexiglass in front of the monitor is ideal.

Any suggestions ?

I am talking about the wide screen 2-player version of this arcade.

I am looking at this monitor from Dell:

This is what I plan for my build.
Please advise:

I will be getting the 2 player wide screen version from Haruman

1.  Monitor:  Dell S2240T, 21.5-inch Monitor touch screen
(http://oi44.tinypic.com/2wg9cty.jpg)

2.  ASUS Maximus IV Impact motherboard:
(http://www.hardwareluxx.com/media/jphoto/messe-galerien/computex-2013-asus-maximus-iv-impact/ctex13-asus-rog-impact-05-950x536.png)

3.  Micro ATX power supply:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005CP07BA/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005CP07BA/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER)

4.  CPU: Intel Haswell Core i5 4670K
http://microcenter.com/product/413251/Core_i5_4670K_34GHz_Socket_LGA_1150_Boxed_Processor (http://microcenter.com/product/413251/Core_i5_4670K_34GHz_Socket_LGA_1150_Boxed_Processor)

I hope that getting the Haswell CPU would have enough GPU power to not need a dedicated graphic card.  If it is too weak to play PC games such as Street Fighter 4 PC game, then I will add in a low profile graphic card.

5.  8 GB of RAM

6.  I will use Hyperspin as my front end.

----------

Other accessories such as joysticks, buttons, ect....for the control panel is still deciding on which one to get.

I want to build a bartop arcade that can use touch screen as well as play PC games such as Street Fighter 4 and Street Fighter vs Tekken, etc... without any problem.


So what do you guys think so far?  What do you suggest for the buttons and joysticks?

Well, have a couple more prototypes in hand, will be checking them over this weekend. 

First is the degenatron's designed barstick, modded to use the tab / slot construction method.

Second is my own creation, an MVS inspired design, single player, 4:3 monitor. 

I should be posting some pics this weekend!

Also, I just submitted a set of vertical plans to my cnc guy for prototyping.   :cheers:

Thank you for the awesomeness!

Still waiting to hear back from my CNC guy on what the final cost per kit will be, then I can come up with a price.  Box will be quite a bit smaller, and lighter, so that will help on shipping costs.

Right now I'm guessing it'll be under $100, by how much not quite sure yet.

I can add pinball holes, and can make a cp for 1 player with trackball.

The MVS should hold the same screen as the standard, so 17" or 19". A 20.1" should just make it, but it would be tight. Those are all 4:3's, btw.

The bar stick is just a standalone, so no monitor.

Questions on the 2-player widescreen version:

1.  Which joystick is recommended for the control panel?  I am considering the OMNI2 joystick at GroovyGameGear but RandyT said that it "will need 2.25" clearance below the bottom surface of the upper panel."  Will this joystick fit the control panel.  I want to get it with the SmoothJoy™ Switches installed.  I like quiet joystick and buttons.
If the OMNI2 joystick cannot fit, what is your recommendation on a good joystick that is quiet.  Price is not a concern.

2.  Which buttons should I get?  I prefer quiet and soft buttons.  I don't need LED.  I need buttons that would fit the 2-player bartop.  Price is not a concern.

3.  I have decided to get Ivy Bridge CPU/motherboard instead of Haswell.  Would this power supply fit? 
http://www.amazon.com/FSP-Certification-FSP400-60GHS-85--R/dp/B005CP07BA/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1371490124&sr=8-6&keywords=micro+atx+power+supply (http://www.amazon.com/FSP-Certification-FSP400-60GHS-85--R/dp/B005CP07BA/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1371490124&sr=8-6&keywords=micro+atx+power+supply)

4.  I will have gamecube/wii/ps2/dreamcast emulators and PC games such as Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter vs Tekken, and other PC games in the Hyperspin front end so I need a powerful graphic card.
Will this fanless graphic card fit in the itx motherboard in this bartop cabinet ?

This kit was designed for a widescreen 23" monitor, so I would think that should fit.

The available width is 22", the specs say that monitor is 21.7" so you should be good.

That joystick should fit as well.  At the midpoint, there is about 3.2" of clearance, gets wider as you go back, a little shallower as you come forward.

The other components will depend on your monitor and the space it takes up.

The MVS kit looks great! Is it also limited to 19" monitors or are the vertical dimensions any different?

Thanks!

19" would be the recommended size, but you should be able to squeeze a 20.1" 4:3 in there...  I think...

I have a Dell 2001FP (20.1") I'll try to stick in there, see how it fits.

Yes, I have your order complete, barstick with pinball flippers added, and a second control panel with 1p & 50mm trackball hole.  I ordered some smaller boxes so I can get these sent out, I'm hoping to get the boxes today.  If not, I will just dig around and find a box to ship it in.

Do you have any templates that would be useful for printing graphics?

I don't know what program you're using to layout your cuts but having exact dimentions for the sides would be really helpful when creating artwork for the side of the cabinets.

Even so,  I don't have the CAD based on the weecade.  I have the 2-player cabinet and also need the template to ask the graphic designer to do the graphics. 

I have seen a lot of people as for this but so far we don't have the template/exact size,dimension for the 2-player version.

Just a suggestion but you might want to change them to 300PPI instead of 72 --- figure if they are being used for artwork you'll want at least a 300PPI final image and some users may not realize they need to adjust it before drawing up the art for printing. Also if you want to clean up the holes if using a 300PPI image using a brush size of 338 pixels will place a 1-1\8" Diameter circle with a single mouse click where desired.

OK here you go (Note : don't have one to verify sizing is correct so if someone could test print and verify dimensions prior to using as a template - just to make sure it would be helpful for others !!:

Had a bit of time so went ahead and did the sides also in case others needed them -- Just need someone to print a test copy and verify the dimensions are correct (went by the 21.43 inchx18.6 measurements in the posted files and added a 1\2 inch border around the oputside - so they should be correct but would be best to get confirmation before using for sending out for final printing !! (IE> Use at your own risk as I do not have a panel to test the dimensions are correct so PLEASE print a test print to verify before investing $$ for printing art using them !!)

I workaround this problem with these black washers,  they're about 6 or 7mm wide.  You get these with the thinner LED button sets.  Can be adapted for regular buttons by cutting of the lip on the inside.

My 2 player admin panel is the other config.  Inspired by degenatrons washers, I cut a piece of 1 1/4 pvc pipe to use as washers.  Paradise arcade sells short barrel buttons that are 54mm instead of the 60mm standard ones.  I don't think the 6mm would have solved the problem though.

I feel the pain here,  I use Degenatrons plans for scratch builds and Jstik/button placement drives me out of my mind.

Your gonna have to modify your plans to lengthen the height of the CP to push the Jstiks further up to accomodate those buttons, most folks use the standard long barrell buttons.

I started putting buttons on the sides.

I would think 80mm should be big enough to support any jstik and still give you room for your buttons.

As for the admin buttons, I used short barrels on mine, not sure where I got them from, they were in my parts bucket. 

Ultimarc gold leaf buttons look short, but I don't have a measurement for those.  Naturally, I can adjust plans a bit so this is less of a headache for future buyers.

I just had something similar to this done recently.  The printed recommended a 3/4" bleed line and a 3/4 padding/cut line.

So what you would have is 3 shapes, 1 inside the original and 1 outside of the original....

Yeah that's Selfie's masterful acrylic job isn't it.

hmmm, 1plyr + t-ball, or is that pushing it...

That may be. I could always include the normal control panel, and then a blank one for you to play with.

Ah ok cool.......waiting on some money on a job i just completed....i'll pm you when ready..... :cheers:

Cool deal...

As far as other projects go, next is that Vewlix (full size) and then a mini-virtual pin.  After that, I can look at other designs.

The acrylic one is pretty cool, but I currently have no way of bending that stuff.

Here's how I lit the buttons:

Cathode vs Multi Colored Led strips (~$30) on amazon?  what do you guys think?  I'm debating about white or red cathodes then my coworker brought this into the equation.   Will led strips give the same glow effects?  thanks in advance.

A mini pin would be amazing, I have a setup right now that I just haven't gotten around to building a box for. 19" 4/3 back glass and 24" playfield. I really hope your design can accommodate a 24" playfield. It probably wouldn't be too hard as there should be more room to work with compared to a bar top mamecab.

i use l brackets, there are some wider ones from Home depot or lowes that have like 3 random holes so you can screw into the PSU and then into the actual machine....

these are coollll

You can try automotive vinyl dyes on a white piece of t-molding. it's 1000x better than most of these paint cans that are supposedly made for plastic.

Popular brands are SEM, VHT, Plasticote, Color Bond and dupli-color.

It is worth giving it a try.  Something out there has to dye the T-mold. ;D  I just cant believe that there are only black & white for 1/2" T-mold.  Found red, grey & charcoal but have to get 500'.  No thank you, dont need that much 1/2". ;D

I know SEM sells a variety of colors and sells them in bare bottles so they can be fed into HLPV guns. The bare bottles can also be mixed.

If it works, bet those guys looking for the elusive sky blue t molding for their Journey cabs would want to give it a shot  ;D

I like the form factor. Being able to use it on different tv's & monitors. The marquee part is what sold me. I already had a dual stick setup. Then seeing the barstick, I was like I want that.  ;D  So the shape of it, the marquee & put some small side art on it.  It will look like a lil arcade machine. No screen of coarse. :cheers:
It will be a very nice setup once mine is finished. :cheers:
So +1 in my book for the barstick, I am digging it so far.  I cant wait to get it done.  Thanks to everybody involved in this project.

On the barstick?  I could check if my CNC guy could get it.  Demand on the barstick has been fairly low, though...

I am ordering some white T-molding for my MVS build, I will be playing with the scraps to find a good method for dyeing or coloring.

The widescreen has been the best seller by far (which has surprised me, quite frankly).

Can you tell me what type of button controls people normally put in the 2 holes in the top right area of the top panel (not the joystick and the 6 action buttons) and the 3 holes in the front of the panels?

Is it for "1 player", "2 player" for the top side and "pause", "coin", and "start" for the front side of the panel?

I am planning to use Hyperspin for the 1-player.  I want to know how I will do the wiring for the ipac mini.

The monitor has one electrical cord and the power supply has another power cord.  I don't want to have 2 power cord coming out of the arcade bartop and have to plug in two cords.

I am new at building these things so please bare with me :-)

I went the easy way on my bartop and used a power strip inside the cabinet to plug in the monitor and PSU and have the cable from that run to the outside - That way you also have the surge protection offered by the power strip. (Note : not the cleanest application as I forgot to leave room for the PSU inside when scaling down from the original plans and wound up cutting a hole in the back for the PSU to gain the extra 1\2 inch of room needed to be able to put the back in place but worked out OK.

(http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc189/JDFanning_bucket/ROBOTRONFinished_zps8e16a848.jpg)

Others open the PSU case and solder the monitor wire straight into the PSU input so the one cord powers both - same can be done by using one of the adapters like in this pic and soldering both wires to it (which also allows the cord to be removed at the case.

Well I thought I would update on the Barstick.  ;D
Tried to dye the tmold, no go on what I tried with.  I am not done trying yet but I installed the white tmold on it for now.  I kind of like for what I have done so far, still want a blue to match this.
I got the plexi cut for $2 at the mom & pop hardware store in town, for the marquee. Gameongrafix did a great job again printing it.
Arcadeoverlays, I had do my custom size side art.  Todd was great there, it looks great & it was mailed in two days. So here is what I have done now.  ;D

Do you that one for both monitor and power supply since it has a total of 6 prongs ? (3 prongs for the monitor and 3 prongs for the power supply)


Also, how do you guys make the monitor and the power supply turn on at the same time?  My monitor has a button for on/off so when I mount the monitor inside the bartop cabinet,  how can it be turned on without pushing the on/off button of the monitor.  The same goes for the power supply.  I just want to push the power button outside the cabinet and both the monitor and the computer will turn on automatically at the same time.

Also, how do you guys make the monitor and the power supply turn on at the same time?  My monitor has a button for on/off so when I mount the monitor inside the bartop cabinet,  how can it be turned on without pushing the on/off button of the monitor.  The same goes for the power supply.  I just want to push the power button outside the cabinet and both the monitor and the computer will turn on automatically at the same time.

I believe on those the 3 silver connectors are the ones used for the wiring (both monitor and PSU hook to the same 3 connectors ) the other brass ones are actually used to wire the LED light inside the switch (which could also be wired with the monitor and PSU wire - so you'd have 3 wires to each of the silver connectors.

As far as both turning on at the same time since you are wiring both directly to the switch it would turn on both when it is turned on -- Most monitors will turn on without pressing the button on the front if you did not press the button to turn it off (ie. if the monitor is turned on and you disconnect power or turn off the switch on a surge protector ar in this case the switch you are adding once power is restores (ie. you turn that added switch back on) the monitor will turn on -- There are some that require the button on the front of the monitor be pressed in which case you'd need to build with some way of accessing that button but the majority of monitors now do not require that and as long as the monitor was on when the power was turned off by another switch once it is turned back on the monitor will power up ( To test plug your monitor in - turn it on - unplg the cord from the wall outlet (do not turn off the monitor) - plug the cord back in and see if the monitor comes back on (if it does the monitor will be fine to use without needing to press the on button on the monitor - once it is pressed once it stays on and will come back on each time power is present until the button is turned off by pressing it)

For the computer you will want to run the 2 wires that go to the power on switch jumper on the MOBO to a momentary switch (you can use an arcade button like the green one I did shown in the pic posted of my bartop above) So the 2 wires that normally run from the MOBO to the front of the case to the power on button run to that green button just like any other button wire is connected (1 to negative 1 to NO)

 By doing this once you plug the system into the wall power goes to that new on\off switch you installed -- If you turn the switch on power goes to the monitor (which powers on as long as the button on the front of the monitor was not pressed to turn it off) - then you press the Green button which turns on the computer (just like it would if you had the computer inside a case and pressed the on button) and the computer and monitor both come to life -- Then when finished you press the green button again (Be sure in windows you set the on\off button to "SHUT DOWN SYSTEM" in the power options so that it correctly shuts down windows rather than just shutting off power without shut down of the OS) - wait for the system to turn off and then turn of the power switch wich turns off the monitor and the remaining power to the system. Then when ready to play again you turn the power switch back on which turns on the monitor and press the green button to boot the system.

I wonder why no company make arcade bartop cabinet out of aluminum like we see with computer cases?  Those computer cases are light and tough. 
If they can make many computer cases out of aluminum, they can certainly create many styles of bartop cabinet.

But then again.....arcade bartop is only a niche market and not many people are into it.  That is why there is not a lot of demand for it.

What are the interior dimensions of the marquee area on the standard (non-widescreen) kit?  I am interested in finding a small LCD monitor to put in there to display the marquee image of the current game and was just wondering what would be able to fit in there (to even begin looking to see if something that size is even made).

Also, after building the kit this past weekend, there were several things I had to learn through trial and error that you should probably list in the first post.  Namely, I had to take several trips to the hardware store to find the right screws to work with the VESA mount.  I knew the standard VESA screw size is M4-.07, but had no idea on what length to get since it had to go through 1/2" of wood.  I found that at least 25mm works (20mm wasn't long enough to reach the threads on my particular monitor).  You might want to list that screw size in the first post to help others tackling this build.

Also, I didn't know ahead of time how the monitor plexi would fit in there, so the monitor I have has to mount in a way where it is all the way up against the back of the speaker panel.  This prevents the plexi from sliding up between the monitor and the speaker panel.  So now I need to cut it short to sit over the monitor.  It would have been helpful to know how the plexi was supposed to go in this kit before I did all that.

Anyway, the kit was relatively easy to put together, but those small details would have been nice to know ahead of time.

The wide one is $160 (or $170 with slot cutting).  Polycarbonate (plexiglass) for the monitor area & marquee are an additional $40.

I have had requests for stands, but haven't had the chance to draw one up & get it prototyped yet, but it is going to be coming soon.

First of all Thx Degenatrons and HaRuMan for keeping these plans "open source"  :notworthy:

Since I have my own CNC router I'm planning on converting the plans to 12mm panels instead of 1/2" (12.7mm) so I can route them myself.

However I've got a question about the plexiglass bezel:

I can't find details on the size and how this is positioned inside the cabinet so I was wondering if the way I interpreted it in this drawing is correct?

I'm coming to terms with the fact that my woodworking sucks and I don't really have enough free time to do a proper project anyway...so considering a kit. :)

So we've gone from bartops to vewlix to cocktails...what are the chances of a cabaret or full-size upright kit being done? :) An Atari style cabaret in woodgrain melamine would be sweet.

Looking at Wide kit for my Samsung 2343bwx, would look nice in there. Have to clear my plate of some other projects first, though.

So we've gone from bartops to vewlix to cocktails...what are the chances of a cabaret or full-size upright kit being done? :) An Atari style cabaret in woodgrain melamine would be sweet.

A -PROPER- Atari cabaret kit would be incredible! I have one that's getting dismantled anyway (centipede, water damage), so I can provide any measurements if needed. Was just going to re-cut the sides, but I'd pay to be a guinea pig for this. I eventually wanted to make a Major Havok cabaret ("eventually" meaning maybe by 2015, ha!), which would require some tweaking to make it a horizontal Atari cabaret. Oh the possibilities, make this happen HaRuMaN!

Speaking of kit ideas, looks to me the bar-top style you're missing is a mini-Nintendo.  ;)  Thinking a good alternative for some Fix-it-Felix clones, so more old uprights can stay original. Been itching to make one for my 3 year old, but can't bring myself to mess with my DK Jr. And cheap Nintendo cabs are nonexistent in the south east. Now a kit like that could be a big seller.

No need to thank me, just send me a prototype for testing.  :lol

Sweeeeet!! I'm excited too. I checked out your website and didn't see anything about this so I should probably ask...please tell me you ship to Canada. If not, I've got relatives stateside who could probably act as middleman, but I'm thinking it's gotta be cheaper to just go direct.

Hey Nitz, I approached Haruman directly and asked him if he would mind if I could jump in to assist. He said it was ok, so I'll be direct and brief. I will be throwing my hat in the ring to produce bartop and full-size cabinets for the Canadian market shortly, and would be interested in producing the cabinet shell you're looking for, if you are interested.

I do continue to support Haruman's great work, and want to let everybody know that I am not attempting to steal away any of his customers. Everyone who has purchased from Haruman in the past knows that his products, pricing and service are top-notch, and without equal. My only aim is to help open the arcade gaming hardware market a bit more in Canada.

Now that I've sidetracked the thread significantly, and definitely more than I originally intended, I'll go open my own thread and stop hijacking Haruman's. (A big, BIG thank you to Haruman for understanding, and giving me the opportunity to post this message.)

Well after many delays, I got some more work done on the Barstick.  I mean my vinyl got lost in the mail for 25 days w/ a tracking number.  Ummmm really  :timebomb: it fell of the grid.  My Led light bar, came in w/ pieces rattling inside. So that is being sent back.  I swear the post office hates me.  :banghead: :angry:
So the marquee is still not mounted, waiting on my new light.  The Cp is just laying on there also right now. But here is the gist of it now.

The Chinese symbol on the CP. I cut out of the bezel & had it printed up but the blue made it darker than should be. So I will just roll with that for now.  ;D

You know, shipping/customs charges is the main thing that has held me back from getting a kit up until now. I'd finally given up on there ever being a Canadian supplier of this stuff, so decided to just bite the bullet and pay up - but of course if a Canadian source for these is becoming a reality, that would be better for me.

Good on you Rick for asking Haruman's permission before posting that, and good on you Haruman for allowing him to post it. You're both upstanding guys.  :cheers:

I'll leave this discussion now and pick it up with Rick.

A -PROPER- Atari cabaret kit would be incredible! I have one that's getting dismantled anyway (centipede, water damage), so I can provide any measurements if needed.

If you can give me some pics with dimensions, I can get this started...

In working with Nitz, I've come across this Sketchup, which seems close to the original specs (http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=d63d68d9310a036b10145cc1b33dac39 (http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=d63d68d9310a036b10145cc1b33dac39)) and this page (http://ggdb.com/GameByName.aspx?c=Coin-Op&s=Arcade&vid=503 (http://ggdb.com/GameByName.aspx?c=Coin-Op&s=Arcade&vid=503)) which details the height, width and depth requirements. I've opened the Sketchup, and it seems to match, but the actual measurements would be very helpful to me as well!

Unfortunately I saw this after I left work where I have the cab in storage. There may be slight variations of the Centipede and Tempest cabarets, since the vector monitor needed more venting. Otherwise the sketch-up model looks really spot on... for the exterior. Unless my version doesn't fully support that model, looks like nothing inside except coin mech details.

I'll check this out tomorrow morning and start to compile some measurements for comparison.  PM me if you want any photos e-mailed directly.

Finished my first 12mm conversion today.

First because after finishing it I figured I should do some stuff different.

In the original design because of the router bit radius panels won't automatically align and might shift a little when placed in the slot. So I added notches in the center of each slot for this.

But just figured it will be a lot easier to use dog- or T-bone fillets instead.  :banghead:

So, back to the drawing board  ;)

EDIT:

HaRuMan, can you tell me if you use any "clearance" in the pockets for the glue/a less tight fit? (hope this makes sense)

e.g. the tab on a panel is 1/4" and the pocket for that tab is a little bit deeper than 1/4"
Title: Re: CNC Cut Bartop Kits - Orders Open! New Models Available!
Post by: HaRuMaN on August 13, 2013, 10:23:39 am
The tab is 1/4" and the pocket is 1/4"

However, the width of the pockets is cut at 0.51" while the material itself is 0.50"

My CNC guy has a VERY precise machine with tolerances in the thousandths of an inch, so I am able to get very tight cuts on mine.  Granted, his machine runs around $80,000, so I guess it had better be great!   ;D

My machine theoretically has a 0.003125mm accuracy, even if the deviation would be x10 (which I find hard to believe) it still should be enough as well.

 I can confirm the measurements with this model:  http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=d63d68d9310a036b10145cc1b33dac39 (http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=d63d68d9310a036b10145cc1b33dac39) are pretty spot on. It took a few trips back and forth to my cabinet (the water damage didn't help) and the sides are on the money. I'm taking the model apart now to see what else needs to be updated. I see no back panel details so here is a quick and dirty ms paint detail (I'm no artist, lol)

(http://i.imgur.com/4qvi49w.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/PY1scWr.jpg)

Now I just had a makeshift back door with no details on mine. So far looking at others online that 19" x 37.5" panel has no details that I can see.

I also see now taking apart the model there appears to be no top or front details. I'll start getting those together. I may just start taking this thing apart if need be.

Thanks for those.  Good starting numbers....

Now, do you care if this is 1/2" or 3/4"?  I can do either... but 1/2" would be lighter & cheaper to ship.

I know I would prefer 3/4", only because that's the original construction. Any custom work (like that Major Havoc cabaret I'll get to someday) would be fine with 1/2". Now if it's a catastrophic increase in shipping I'll probably change my tune.  ;)

Would the 3/4" also be black melamine? Not familiar with the stock you use, so is the melamine pre-applied before cutting, or after? Color choices? I know someone else mentioned having it shipped with the wood paneling on the side panels. I actually would prefer white since I'll be doing something similar to this:

Awesomeness.
Would making just the the sides in 3/4", and everything else in 1/2" make an impact in your shipping? Thought that could be a good compromise - The cabinet still looks the same, and is lighter to ship and move once assembled.
I assume it all depends on how you can lay the parts on 4'x8' sheets, but something to consider.

Once I get drawing I can better answer that...  Most likely this will take a couple of sheets anyway, and in your case, sides in white make sense, and maybe everything else in 1/2" black?

My machine ballscrews have a 5mm pitch and is set to use 1600 microsteps/rev which results in 320 microsteps/mm which results in 1:320 = 0.003125mm

As said this is "theoretically" because every machine has it's inaccuracy due to tool flexing etc.

As promised, more measurements, this time of the front panel:

(http://i.imgur.com/Mjj0knH.jpg)(http://i.imgur.com/wi6X07W.jpg)(http://i.imgur.com/HZa4bBI.jpg)

As you can see in the pics, the front panel extends 1.25" up past the bottom of the control panel to accommodate the piano hinge inside. So total height of panel is 34.75"

The measurements where taken from the front since I haven't had the chance to dismantle this cabinet yet. The dimensions for the coin door overlap where taken into consideration, so the numbers I have are for the size of the whole to be cut, not the outer dimensions of the door itself.

These are preliminary, since I need to very the type of holes needed for the speaker and marquee. Didn't have the chance to see if these are solid holes or if they have a recessed edge.

Attached is my first 12mm release version.

Edit: Added a "Side cross section" to the file and updated it to "beta 1_2"

Edit 2: Made a dumb error with the joystick positioning calculations. My idea with the lowered admin buttons won't work due to this. Once again: Back to the drawing board  :banghead:

Edit 3: Problem solved! I raised the base of the cabinet with 13.5mm and now the lowered admin buttons do clear the joysticks as intended. (see first sheet of new beta)

Edit 4: In order to fit Happ competition joysticks as well I raised it with another 6,5mm

I hope to be routing a first "test" version in the next couple of weeks (have some other stuff to route first).

Some things I "changed":
• Converted to 12mm material instead of 1/2"
• Converted to 3mm acryllic instead of 1/8"
• Converted the design to using T-bone fillets for the panel tabs and slots
• Adjusted panel angles to more logical numbers (30º, 45º, 5º, 12.5º etc.)
• Adjusted angle between CP and admin panel to 90º
• Enlarged the cp with a few mm so it overhangs the admin button panel
• Added the possibility for mounting/easy alignment of the cp with 6mm doves. Permanent screwing is still posible, added semicircular cutouts for this in the bottom panel (thanks for the tip degenatrons!)
• Added extra ventilation holes in the top back panel
• Added the posibility for mounting the marquee the same way used in my "evo XR cade"
• Added shallow slots in the sidepanels for the monitor bezel acryllic so it can be clamped in between (slots are 1.5mm deep, acryllic needs to be 452mm wide). By slightly bending the acryllic it can still be removed (e.g. in case a new monitor will be fitted). This is experimental but I hope it works.
• Raised the base of the cabinet with 20mm so lower placed admin buttons clear joysticks with a maximum base thickness of 42mm
• Added 6 button layouts + possible admin and pinball button positions.
• and some more stuff

Big thanks to degenatrons and HaRuMan!

Since my first test version turned out to be ok I've converted it to a first release version, see attached.

Since I work with Adobe Illustrator instead of CAD software I created a PDF instead of a DXF. Illustrator DXF's are unreliable.

The files are based on my own machine with 60x93,5cm work area.

So I'm making good progress on the cabaret... Question is, how do you want to handle the monitor, and how do you want to handle the control panel?

I have more measurements, I just have to get back to the office where I have the cabaret (work is a little nuts atm). I can tell you already the top panel is just one piece with a taper cut on both ends. The holes for the speaker grill, marquee and coin door require rounded corners.

I'll provide detail pics and measurements for the monitor mounting board. took a lot of pics of the surrounding areas to showing how it all fits together. I have a control panel, but if you wanted to make something to give anyone else the option for a wooden one, I can take some measurements. I could probably trace a profile and scan/send it to you if that will help.

I know the holes for the coin door and speaker appear to be straight through. The marquee's original measurements are for a recess, with the full hole I'd say .25" smaller on all sides. I'm having a tough time removing the speaker grill and marquee if anyone knows the trick. The screws look like stripped torx or maybe deigned to be similar to rivets.

For the side panels, the original sketch model had those spot on, you have to get all the arcs and curves right. Not knocking his measurements, but they can be off depending on where you measure in the arcs.

As far as the front is concerned, I explained the measurements in a previous post. The actual panel extends into the CP area and the holes for the speaker grill and marquee are a little more complex. I'll add some notes to add to the previous measurements and post some related photos in the AM. Did he mention which cab these came from?

I traced the sides directly from sketchup.

Some notes (will update with pics tomorrow):

Top panel:
- bevel cut on both ends, sits flush to back of cab
- 1.25" below top of side panels
- top face measures 19" W x 22.5" L
- same angle to bevel as top of side panels

To add to the previous post I made about the front panel:
- Speaker grill inner facing hole is 4"W x 7"H. Outer facing side is the 5"Wx8"H
- Marquee inner facing hole is 15.25"W x 3.25"H, outer facing side is 16.5"W x 4.5"H
- small radius corners on speaker grill and marquee
- Coin door remains 7.5" W x x20" H
- larger radius corners for coin door.

Monitor mounting board:
- Total size is 19" W x 23.5" H
- Inner cut out hole measures 15.5" W x 18.5" H
- Inner cut out centered, with 1.75" on either side and also from top of panel.
- Mounting holes for monitor are 5" from each side and 19.5" apart vertically
- Shape accommodates mounting strips from adjacent panels, and is mounted 9.5" back from front edge of top panel.

Bottom panel:
- My cabinet is a little water damaged here, but it seems to be 19"W x 27" L. Once all the other corresponding measurements are done your model should be able to verify.

I guess my next question is, will this be designed to assemble just like the original, with  .75" x .75" strips to mount the panels, or with the same "pocket" design like the other projects here? Pocket design would make for a cleaner, less complicated build. But strength is a concern. Just curious.

Post by: HaRuMaN on August 19, 2013, 11:21:30 pm
I thought about doing pockets, the problem is the sides are flush with the front and back panels, leaving no room for pockets... I could change the design to make it not flush, but then it would not look the same.

OK, some more measurements, this time using some good shots of a partially deconstructed cab from an old post in another forum.
(http://i.imgur.com/9HlTuyA.jpg)(http://i.imgur.com/HnhT4cM.jpg)

This is a tempest cabaret, and I choose to show this for it's differences:
Please note the items circled in red. This piece is not in my cabinet and appears to never have been part of it's construction. I believe it to be the lighting mounting plate for the marquee, since the centipedes never had that as an option. Personally, I wouldn't need it, since I have better options for lighting than original, but maybe a single board for the option would not be a bad idea. would add strength to the cab, as well.

(http://i.imgur.com/uLv7WSN.jpg)(http://i.imgur.com/vJ5rrjC.jpg)

Here is what I heard about the tempest and other cabarets with vector tubes having additional venting for the heat they produce. That is the upper rear panel. My centipede is to the right. I think the standard kit should include the panel from the tempest cab instead.


PLEASE let me know if you need any further measurements. As far as construction, I would try for partially pocketed like your other designs, the top, monitor board, and anything else with the exception of front and back panels could be done this way, even some of the blocking strips could be pocketed for added strength. Hope these are helpful in completing your model.

It'll just be a piece of sheet metal, designed to fit over that opening, with a couple of holes as credit buttons, should be pretty cheap compared to a coin door.

A racing cab? The only way I see a CNC kit for one of those if its styled like an early pole position or spy hunter sit down. A lot of parts would have to be sourced, through. And I'm guessing pretty pricey.
The red tents were all metal, not sure how a wooden one would work out. But the idea intrigues me. Maybe some kind of head-to-head bar-top setup? Maybe even just a stand option for those with one or two bar-tops already?

The 'mini-Nintendo' one is a toughy. I've been working on that one myself, and it just doesn't look 'perfect'... It may just be my render, or maybe my measurement conversion is off a bit.

NINTENDO BAR-TOP!!!!

Phew, sorry. Killer day at work and had no lunch, a little light headed.  :lol

Can't wait to see the atari cabaret (you got all you needed?). One kit idea that comes to mind that I haven't seen anyone try is the old Nintendo cabaret, ala Donkey Kong:
(http://doc-00-8g-3dwarehouse.googleusercontent.com/3dwarehouse/secure/hhulr73hmmak89paul31eote4ben7ngk/g1kk0i21lsffjngms67ag6l9cdmjq3r8/1377540000000/lt/*/14c80796f521c80533276a8c0b1c862?ts=1319647092000&ctyp=other)

That other cabaret is pretty sweet, too.

Would this be one sheet of material or two for the atari cab? I'd say the sides should still be 3/4", but you could make the internals, top, bottom, front, and back 1/2" if this requires two sheets and you want to keep cost/weight down. The "internals" sheet could be black and the "sides" sheet could be white.

I'm not sure how you'll have everything laid out on the material, but the finished look for a normal unit would just be the wood paneling on the sides, all other external surfaces black, with internal black or unfinished. If this all fits on one sheet, you could laminate each side differently (one black, one white or wood grain) and just lay them out so they'll still assemble to get the final look.

Man, it looks like  I need to start repairing the boards for my centipede  ;D
Title: Re: CNC Cut Bartop Kits - Orders Open! New Models Available!
Post by: HaRuMaN on August 28, 2013, 11:35:07 am
It looks like it will take 2 sheets. Problem is, can't fit 2 sides on one sheet, so it will all be 3/4", and it will all be the same material.

I can do a white melamine, or black, or woodgrain... Or if you want something really nice I can do a Baltic birch plywood.

Let's go with black melamine. It would be easier to prep just the sides (if needed) for the side art, than painting everything else black.

It looks great! But there a couple pieces missing:

- Control panel bracket sides (2)
- Control panel back brace (1)
- Cardboard surround / bezel mounting strips (2)
- Monitor bracket backing braces (2)   (these do not need to be the full length of the monitor bracket)

None of that needs to be slotted due to variations of what monitors people use.

I made some minor adjustments in the layout you had to make any needed space on the sheets (marked in yellow). Not sure how this works with the CNC, just making suggestions.
Also, didn't see in your graphic if any accommodation was made in the recessed cuts for the marquee or speaker grill.

OK, the original has the straight through hole in the smaller dimensions, but require a recess of the larger dimension on the outside face to accommodate the glass and metal grill, I'd say 1/4 deep.

Is there any way you could build a kit for the Little Ms. Pac-man (http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,128666.0.html (http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,128666.0.html)) that Griffindodd (aka Maximus) designed and make it fit the asus 23" evo monitor?  I would be down for one of those for sure.

Any chance of this happening???

Hey Lee, any word on if an xbox original console will fit in the widescreen version?  Hope it will fit without having to remove to the case.  I'm thinking it might if mounted against the back of the monitor support?

Thanks again Haruman for the kit. :cheers:

She's a beauty!

Just a question - have you considered rounding the two back corners? In looking at them, the top rear corner looks a bit sharp for my tastes, which led me to think if you did both, the t-molding could be 'joined' in the center of the bottom, and then you wouldn't have as many sharp corners.

Just my two cents.

You can never have to many controllers  ;D

@Rick
Thanks also  ;D
The rear top corner is a bit sharp.  I had to snip a little of the inside track of the Tmold to get it to go on the rear corners.  No biggie thou  ;D

Nice work man on the barstick....

Did you recess the sticks a bit? Cause they look mights short.

I sometimes have to route a recess under the CP so the sticks sit up higher.

Regardless the assembly and completion was well done. :applaud: :applaud: :applaud: :applaud:

Well the issue is that anything over 150 pounds gets pushed into freight category (with FedEx) and that basically quadruples the price.

3/4" Black Melamine is pretty heavy, even heavier than 3/4 plywood.  With 2 sheets of melamine, it'd be pretty close to the limit...  plywood should be able to keep under the limit maybe.

I was thinking about this myself, for my pinball cabinets. If the price is prohibitive, try packaging the larger items separately, to bring the price down. Sure, you'll be almost doubling your regular shipping costs, and increasing the risk of lost/short shipments, but you should be able to get your packages in under the weight limit.

Hmm...  that's a thought.  Put the 2 sides together in a largish box, then the rest of the parts in smaller box #2.  Each one would be well under 150 pounds.

That's incredible!  :o The glass come with the kit? did you paint the black areas around the controls, or where they cut from black stock? Also what size LCD is in that cocktail?

I'm working with a local CNC guy in SC for the Atari kit. I hope to have one cut and some photos up in the next week or so, in case anyone is curious on how the finished product turns out.

Glass not included, but is available online for around $80 shipped.

Those particular control panels were cut from wood, and covered with black cabinet grade vinyl.  Metal pacman control panels (11") will work as well.

The top is designed to fit a 20.1" LCD, a Dell 2001FP.

I got all the slot cutting finished today, these will be shipping out Monday. FedEx home is what I use so you are looking at around 4 days shipping time.

About soul draw, they are located in China, but I usually get my orders about 2 weeks after placing them.

For side art, I get the black adhesive vinyl sticker. For marquees, I get the backlit pvc film.

Uh oh Rick, I may have to go local for my Nintendo Bar-top. We'll see how the two compare :angel:
I kind of owe HaRuMaN an order after his work on the Atari model, after all.

I'll add a 2nd LCD to that request of yours (17" + 19") as compensation when I start shipping parts again, if it's any consolation.
Not like anyone will have a hard time selling them  ;D

I appreciate the offer, but I won't hold you to that. It's business, and I totally understand the decision.

Nice!
I would recommend something though, and extend the CP panel a bit to sit on top of the front panel, or reposition them. The nintendo cabs had that look and this way one could add the t-molding to match:
(http://[url=http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-NyshNgGQFC4/UUJNI0RZ18I/AAAAAAAAAIY/LxOMuniKHfE/s1600/IMG_2574.jpg]http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-NyshNgGQFC4/UUJNI0RZ18I/AAAAAAAAAIY/LxOMuniKHfE/s1600/IMG_2574.jpg[/url])

This is just going off the CNC sketch and not seeing a completed unit, though. Awesome work as always.

It's ready to be cut now, I have the estimate back from my CNC shop.  For black melamine, it's going to be the same cost as the vertical ($190 shipped with slots cut).  Another customer requested it made out of cabinet grade baltic birch plywood, that's going to be $230 shipped with slots cut.

I'm mostly just jibin' ya, man. BUT, when I looked to the Popeye bartop as well as the actual Nintendo cabs, I noticed there's an unused panel above the control panel... On my design, I made it like an inch and a half. It's purely cosmetic, so really, it's a "to each his own" kinda thing.

Your design looks GREAT. I wouldn't change a thing. (Personally, I like the way yours will support the monitor more vertically. I've noticed most of the true cabs - if not all of them - have a HUGE angle on the monitors.)

I gotcha.  Yeah, I plan on the bezel coming down all the way to the control panel.  As far as the monitor goes, I like more vertical, about 80 degrees, but with the way the kit is designed, and the room available, the angle can be adjusted to whatever the customer wants.  :cheers:

I've read a lot of posts on the virtual pinball sites regarding the holes for the legs, saying it's much to difficult to drill after the cab is built. Beyond that, are you planning on having a hole for any DMD? (Yes, I realize it's just a preliminary sketch. I'm just spitballing.)

Title: CNC Cut Bartop Kits - Orders Open! New Models Available!
Post by: macattack on October 02, 2013, 05:08:40 pm
Assume for this design you are not using melamine with all those exposed edges.

Leg holes are better done ahead of time, i certainly cnc mine upfront.

Monitor location looks pretty low in the cab.

Button placement will likely interfere with monitor, flippers look a little high and forward.

Assume your going for a 2 screen setup.

There should also be a ledge at the front of the backbox.

Waiting to hear back from the customer on the DMD.  And as far as the holes for the legs go, how are you planning on having them CNC'ed at a 45 degree angle, unless your CNC shop has a 4-axis setup?

I didn't. I have them cut through on both the front and back as well as the sides. The corresponding holes are just large enough for the commonly used bolts, and will work fine to "guide" the bolts through...

(http://i.imgur.com/fuwyzaT.jpg)

From what I've seen, the legs come with both covers and inside brackets, which help to square them up with the rest of the cabinet.

@HaRuMaN:

Can you tell me how deep you cut the slots for the t-molding? And how you limit the cut depth of your slot cutter?

Since the pockets are 1/4" deep and prety close to the edge you might cut into them if you cut at the full depth of a "Standard" slot cutter.

I'm gonna go out and guess he's using a router table, like I do.

(http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/attachments/f12/22934d1301514926-table-saw-router-please-advise-router.jpg)

It has an open port for the blade, and adjustable back guards, which move forward and backwards, as well as side to side.

I do, but that is inadequate for limiting depth of cut, especially on curved / angled pieces.

The standard 1/16" slot cutter, out of the box, cuts the slots WAY too deep, like twice as deep as they need to be.

What I ended up doing was purchasing a larger bearing separately, and replacing the stock (smaller) bearing on the cutter.  That way the depth of cut is always mechanically limited by the slot cutter itself.

That's great in theory, not so much in practice.  With the bearing swap, I can slot cut a whole bartop kit in about 5 minutes.  When I've got 8 bartop kits to slot, pack, and ship, reducing the slot cutting time is huge.

Because I wanted to route a kit this evening and couldn't get hold of a bearing that quick I ended up cutting an acrylic "press on"  adapter ring for the bearing on my cnc router. That worked!

Also been looking into 12mm laminated particle board instead of blank MDF, but that's pretty expensive over here because it's not commonly used.
The kit I just finished is in mdf that has a white ground coat on it (no idea what it's called in English). At least that's s lot better than the normal blank version.

Lol  :laugh2: no no no no no ....... that's in Sweden  :hissy:

15 and 18mm in plain white or (black) woodgrain are quite common, but 12mm plain black isn't. Available in HPL instead of melamine mostly and that's triple the price of the pre coated MDF

Edit: here's a crappy phone pic of the pre grounded mdf (can someone please tell me what it's called in english?  :cheers:) kit before routing the T-molding

@HaRuMaN: maybe this is interesting for you (or maybe not  :dunno)

Because I don't like marquees mounted with angled profiles (looks too plump) I came up with the following mounting method for the marquee on kits with T-Molding:

(https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/72592758/bartop/thumbs/Marquee%20mounting_T-molding.jpg) (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/72592758/bartop/Marquee%20mounting_T-molding.jpg)

If someone wants a kit without T-Molding I still use the method I also used for Evo XR Cade:

(https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/72592758/bartop/thumbs/Marquee%20mounting%20sample_600px.jpg) (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/72592758/bartop/Marquee%20mounting%20sample.jpg)

This method can't be used with T-molding because the t-molding slot would run into the top slot for the marquee, cutting of the edge. This could be prevented by mounting the marquee deeper into the cabinet, but think that would look awkward.

Now, hold on just a second. I may not have a lot of 'original' ideas, but I'd like to claim at least this one for my own.

Each of my bartop designs have integrated 1/4" slots carved into them to support easy installation of plexi for playfield glass and marquees.

No harm, no foul here though. Even macattack heisted my idea.

Am i missing something but dont you need 2 pieces of plexi for a marque, you have to sandwich the graphic, right.

The t-molding method sounds promising, the only issue i forsee, is t-molding does not like to pulled in and out of its slot.  Eventually with maintenance over time if you have to remove your marquee, that slot won't be as tight.

Think it depends on how far you spanning and the material thickness that was used, if you only spanning a couple of inches and the material is 1/2" or 3/4" then it usually offers enough support to hold it in place. That said sandwiches are nice ;)

look like your slots in the sidepanels?  :dunno

If you are referring to the other picture instead: I'd hate to spoil that party as well since I've used that method on my Evo XR Cade a few months back as well, and it's also commonly used for placing modular wall panels <- that's where my inspiration came from.

But as mentioned: hate to spoil the party so  :cheers:

Why would you need 2 panels? This is only needed if you use a print on normal paper for the marquee, but since there are a lot of signing companies out there which can simply print the artwork mirrored on clearview vinyl and laminate it with white after that so you get a "sticker" that you can adhese on the back of the plexi I see no need for that.

Pulling out the t-molding won't really be nescesary (that often) if you use LED strip for the lighting.

I honestly have no idea what hes even talking about. I came up with the pockets instead of tabs idea (and Haruman found a way to make it work), and the idea to ship the kits with pool noodles (which he upgraded my idea to pipe insulators) . I suggested the Galaga style vert kit, and some other things. I cant keep up with everyone who hates me anymore, its easier to keep track of the few who do like me =)

Don't take it too bad, most of that lot I had been doing for years with pins and bezels. Pipe insulating is better since it reduced shipping dimensions ;) those noodles are way to big. Lol.

We want wood!!!

Nice to meet you, Mr. Mortice. Or was that Mr. Tenon? ;)

And who hates you? I love you, man.

In no particular order:
Genesim
Tommy
ChadTower
KevSteele
Xooushe2
Ark Adder (sometimes)
404 (used to, I think)
MarkMVP (mostly because hes not good at comprehension in football threads)

and that's just on the forums!

As for the pockets, I'm not saying I invented the idea of the wood pocket, just that I was a factor in the pocket becoming implemented in Haruman's kits, same thing with the pool noodle. I suggested the pockets after receiving a version 1.0 kit (well 2 of them) and HATING the batons, and suggested the noodles when he told me he was having an issue with the melamine getting chipped in transit. I certainly didnt invent the Galaga cab, but I suggested to him to make a vert based on it. Snaaaaaaaaaaaaaake (is that the right amount of As?) suggested the widebody kit. Point is individually we are all pretty good, but as a community we are pretty great. Far too often on these boards there's an unhealthy competition or bickering over nothing. That doesnt apply to you completely, I mean you seem to be ok with sharing ideas with Lee but sometimes I dunno, its ---smurfing--- annoying to see all the jabs being taken by everyone on here, and yes, Im guilty of doing it too sometimes but Im working on it.

Kudos on the mortise and tenon joint reference that no ones gonna get :(
I digress. I come to these boards to have fun, see others creativity, get help, and show off my projects, not to argue over semantics.

He'll be using 60-in-1, tiny.  Plenty of room for that.

I'm up in Ajax, Ontario myself. There's only one place locally that I know about, and that's The Playdium Store (https://www.theplaydiumstore.com/). It's pretty good - they've got about 20 pins and 10 multi-arcade machines... ...all on free play. (It's getting to the point that I'm thinking the U.S./Canada border is the official "arcade dead zone". I'm hoping to fix that.)

One of those mini, micro, whatever bar-tops would be a good candidate for a smaller wide screen LCD. And have a digital marquee that changes at the top of the vertical LCD depending on the game you play.

As a matter of fact, two Nintendo cabs (one baltic birch, the other white melamine) and the wall hanger were cut today, I'll be picking them up tomorrow.

This is one of my Midway verticals, this one will be going off to Malenko soon (after I get the art on it's Galaga twin and take pics of both together).

You're right. I was a bit cross-eyed looking at it, and didn't even notice it wasn't the Nintendo... ...too much staring at the screen at what I've named, "Haruman's Folly". Got one of these babies in your repertoire, anywhere?

I've been following CNC forums and information for a while now, and from what I understand, precision isn't usually an issue. Like, at all. You may not get the speed of a professional machine, but I hear that there would be little-to-no loss between machines. If you have the room and the ability to assemble it, I'd seriously look into it.

If I had a building, or even the space inside my house, this is the first thing I would build. First. Thing.

I had a feeling that was the case.  I looked high & low for 1/2" Tmold for the barstick. Something other than black or white or 500' of red. :hissy: ;D
I was hoping that you we're gonna say something goofy like, " Soul-t-Mold.com". :afro:  ;D hehehe  ;D

not only do I have wood, but it's pretty wood at that. This is dry fit, no glue.

Need moar pics! That is amazing. Can't wait to see the galaga bar-top.

A co-worker was just saying how his girl wanted a galaga, but a bar-top would be much easier to get into his house.....
You provide options for the artwork too, or would one have to pester someone else to obtain?

As I understand, you pay for it when you do it as a "gift" and the receiver pays for it when you pay for it as a "item purchased". When I sent the $2, I chose "gift" and I got charged a small fee for the transfer.

Yeah its free on his end until paypal catches on that he's actually using that option for sales, then the option gets shutdown.  You have to be doing decent volume though to get redflagged.

Also, Haruman....

Sourced you some elusive 5/8 mdf core melamine, 2 sided black, in case you want to play.....46.00 a sheet....

Talked to the guy today, and they carry it in stock....might have your guy give em a call they may offer discounted rates for shops.

There is a special trick to where, neither side gets charged.  I can't remember but i had a customer send to me as a gift, he had his bank account attached to his paypal, so it was free for him, and i got the full amount on my side......just depends on how you have it setup i guess.

I was going to say that it looks like you could squeeze it down to at most 2 1/2 sheets, if you oriented the rear pieces sideways, or modified their dimensions to fit... Just my two cents.

Haven't had any complaints, 50 some orders in. Of course, I also offer any material the customer wants. I just made a really nice Nintendo in a cabinet grade Baltic birch.

Customers seem to appreciate not having to paint. Or laminate.

One thing i've learned is once you cut the piece, immediately iron on the edge banding, that keeps the edges from scraping the ground.

It's not very saw friendly, router or cnc cuts it nice though.

One time builds, i agree with the laminate approach, but when your doing a cabaret of builds the laminating gets old really quick.  What really pisses you off is laminating and then chipping that, after all that hard work.

Hey Haruman!

Okay so, I'm still EXTREMELY green to this whole "building arcade cabinets" thing (aka this is going to be my first one), so I have a couple questions that may be incredibly dumb. I'm looking at the two player wide screen bartop.

Questions!
1) Does it matter what kind of monitor I put in? Or will basically any 23" widescreen LCD fit the bill?
2) You offer a "Clear 1/8" polycarbonate bezel & marquee with black plastic U-channel for the right & left sides of each." Unfortunately my dumb newbie brain doesn't know exactly what that means. What is that?
3) Is there any concern of, like, palm sweat wearing out the paint and such on the control panels?
4) You mention an "admin panel"... is that the buttons on the lower section facing straight out towards the player?
5) Speaking of buttons, I have (what seems to be standard-ish) 30mm buttons. Will those fit the button holes?
6) For the widescreen kit, what do you need as far as motherboard size? Will an ATX motherboard fit, or is it designed for something smaller?

I'm like half a second away from ordering a kit (well, maybe like a paycheck away), but I just wanted to make sure I was fully aware of what I was getting, etc.

Thank you SO MUCH! :)

Post by: HaRuMaN on November 02, 2013, 10:49:02 am
1) As long as the monitor's physical size is less than 22" wide, any 23" widescreen should work.
2) So, you get the plexiglass to cover the marquee area, and you get the plexiglass to cover the monitor area.  Black U-channel is just a decorative touch that goes on the left / right sides of both.
3) This is black melamine (a type of laminate).  It's not going to wear off under your hands.  :)
4) Yes
5) Yes. the widescreen kit comes with 30mm button holes.
6) I would go with MicroATX. 

Let me know if you have any more questions!

Thanks!  :cheers:

I used carriage bolts on my cp for the barstick. I dont have the nut on it so I can twist it off to remove the cp as needed. I use needle nose to start to get it out or finish it down so it is flat.  Then use the fingers for the rest of the twisting. That mug dont go nowhere :D Stays on like a champ. :)

Found a place that sells them for $79 shipped for real glass, which is $20 cheaper than anything else I've seen. They have super fast shipping, too.

I made the CPs on this out of metal, the ones on the previous one were wood. Both were fine.

Yeah, what sold me on this kit is the woodgrain. The melamine HaRuMaN used is a beautiful cherry color. I did use a black top on this one, so that's why the glass looks smoked. I did put a smoked piece of plexi between the screen and glass, though. Looks better.

My daughter gave it a name, and I had a buddy print the vinyl stickers used for the graphics. It really adds a pop to the table.

HaRuMaN, couple more questions I thought of:
1) I saw you mention that the control panel is removeable. Is that the only way into the innards of the case, to replace dead hardware and such?
2) Can you do modifications? I was thinking of maybe two small ports on the back side of the case for USB mounts, so you can plug a keyboard/mouse in for software troubleshooting and such.

Nope, this is the right thread.  I have used small USB powered speakers in mine, but you could also use car type speakers and a small amp, like this:

http://www.amazon.com/LP-2020A-Lepai-Tripath-Class-T-Amplifier/dp/B0049P6OTI/ (http://www.amazon.com/LP-2020A-Lepai-Tripath-Class-T-Amplifier/dp/B0049P6OTI/)

I guess I don't know what the back panel looks like, because all my questions come from that:

How does power come into this box? Is there just a hole cut in the back where a single power cord can come out? And I guess that follows straight into a more general question: what's the ideal way to set these up to power on? You've got to at least be able to turn on/off the computer and monitor with one switch, right? Or am I missing something obvious?

Only 1 of my bartops runs a PC, Bonnie's Pink Box. It has a wireless KB and mouse, so we shutdown from that. However, most mobo's you can set to shut down PC with press of a button, so you could just wire a button into the back/top and use that to shut down.  Power comes in at the bottom of the door on all my cabs, drill a hole, put an arcade button in there without a plunger, and run the wire through. I unplug the cabs when not inuse and the monitors auto power on when I plug it in.


You might answer a lot fo the questions you come up with by looking at some bartop project threads  :cheers:

Hi Haruman, i have a couple of questions.


I am interested in setting one up with a vertical oriented monitor to play pacman, donkey kong, galaga, etc. My goal is to spend less time on the cab and more getting the guts and software done. I like the midway and the nintendo designs. What dimensions are recommended for monitors in these two cabs? The details may very well be in this thread, but its 28 pages! I am leaning towards using on old hp laptop I have sitting around. It is a 15" widescreen with a 1280x800 monitor.
Has anyone used a laptop and a laptop screen in one of these? With the polycarbonate bezel and vesa mount it looks like a desktop style monitor is probably the best bet, but just wondering if there are any other options.

Thanks in advance
Title: Re: CNC Cut Bartop Kits - Orders Open! New Models Available!
Post by: HaRuMaN on November 09, 2013, 10:01:51 am
With the vertical, a 17" 4:3 is recommended. With the Nintendo, you could do a 19" vertically or a 20.1" horizontally. You could probably get a 15" looking good in the vertical kit if you got creative with some bezel art.

Clearance!  I have a V1.5 Standard bartop just sitting around, it was a hybrid prototype.  Has the black melamine sides, but the rest is MDF.  I can take pictures if anyone is interested.  I was thinking $75 shipped.

I have been debating how to get after this project for a bit. Your clearance one has me thinking about just going that route. Does the clearance one you are selling have the center piece with the monitor mount? If so, you can put me down for that kit along with the plexi. If not, i would probably pass and opt for a full kit.

Thanks

Yes, it includes the monitor mount piece with 100 x 100 and 75 x 75 VESA mount holes as well as the triangular brackets to hold the monitor mount to the sides.

Hey, just wanted to double check that you meant a 360 game case (like a DVD case)...  or did you want big enough for an actual 360 console.   ;D  Figured I'd ask before I got too far into the plans.

Very nice! Could you include a piece of board to cover the very bottom opening?, I could possibly install a drawer into it.  Also for the edges, I would prefer to have it pre-cut for t-molding.   Let me know the pricing of everything, I want to get the standard bartop, pedestal, polycarbonate bezel & marquee and have everything pre-slotted for t-molding.

I could do that, sure.  Let me get the plans for the pedestal over to the shop so I can find out how much it would run.

HaRuMaN, I got the case and have been assembling it all weekend!

It's been going pretty well (considering my lack of woodworking/planning skills), but I have a few questions that may be dumb:

So I've got those little sticks, that it seems you're supposed to glue(?) into the not-as-deep slats, and then rest the back door and controls on them. I guess my questions are 1) do you glue the sticks into those slots and 2) how do you keep the controls from just lifting off when someone pulls up on a joystick, or the back door from just falling off?

Thanks! (Seriously, this case came out great, and my lack of woodworking skills are barely going to be able to do it justice!)

Not dumb at all.  The thin strips get glued into the sides. How to attach the cp and back is up to you. Some people use screws, some use industrial Velcro, I am going to try strong magnets soon. As far as the back goes, I usually hinge the bottom, and use a lock at the top.

This may be my final question (haha, who am I kidding), because the constructing part of this may be nearing the end!

So the marquee. You said grab some L-channel? How exactly is that installed? I can't figure out how that would hold plexiglass and a sign. Maybe I'm just not picturing it correctly...

So, if you take a close look you can see 2 screws around the bottom of the marquee area.  This is holding the L-channel on.  The 2nd piece of L-channel is on top.

Download draftsight, it's free, that's what I use to draw. You will have to use the dimension tool to make the dimensions show up, but they're a part of the drawing.

An draft sight.  I had it but didn't know about the dimension tool.  Will try!

Kinda figured it out, using smart dimensions, it puts big dimensions and you can drag it around; correct?

Do you have the cnc file for the 2-player version?  I didnt see it on the first page and looked around a few pages

In this thread a few people showing finished products, the edges of the two side panels have this nice black plastic edging. I don't know how to find that. I tried "edging" at amazon, but all it has is gardening stuff. I don't even know if its called edging.

What's that stuff?! :)

EDIT: Edge Banding. Found it. Of course as soon as I ask. haha

It's called T-Molding.

http://www.t-molding.com/ (http://www.t-molding.com/) is a regular place to get it.
Groovy Game Gear (http://groovygamegear.com/webstore/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=75&zenid=opin93c91f46c3o5gdhidnaf17) has it too.

If you look at the bartop pic in the very first post of this thread you will see a groove cut into the wood.  The leg of the "T" molding gets pressed/tapped/beaten into that groove.

At first opening the box, I can see the packaging was well thought out, from the light-weight materials to the method of wrapping the panels.
(http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=103207.0;attach=300914)

Each set of panels are tightly packed together, with foam protecting the edges.

No damage! I was worried that the long travel distance and exchanging of hands/trucks/planes, etc... would yield some unwanted results, but it all came in unscathed!

I asked Lee to route out the bottom of my control panel to be able to fit Japanese-type controls. My Seimitsu LS-58, and Sanwa buttons fit well!  Don't mind the snap-in Sanwa buttons, I'll be going with screw-in ones once they arrive.

Paradise Arcade Shop's aluminum balltop with shaft cover on the LS-58. I love that balltop, it has this dark, dull, matte look that is really sleek looking in RL. This is a 1P bartop...geared towards more non-kick harness games. (if you know how I feel about the LS-58's, and what I use them for, then it'll be pretty easy to figure out what type of games I'll be playing on this thing)

I gotta say, this kit is looking really sweet!
The quality of the cuts is clean, as expected, and the weight of the cabinet altogether isn't too heavy, but not too light. The laminate is going to save a lot of time painting and priming, and it just looks sexy.
I've got a few plans for having the CP accessible from the front.

I'll post more information on it once I start assembling, and probably put up a project thread. For now, I'm keeping my project intentions close-to-the-chest, but I will say that I'm stoked to get this assembled, all wired and art'd up!

Hey, I built a cabinet from your cad design (I have access to a CNC machine) and it looks great. I just changed the control panel for a 2 player layout.

How are you guys mounting the joystick on the 1/2" CP? Just with a regular nut and bolt? Thanks.

So I might just be a dummy, but how does this marquee plexi go on?  I have the plastic u-channel pieces and the piece of plexi for the marquee, but do I just glue the plastic pieces on?  I am very confused.

Can you give any detailed pictures of how this all works?

Ok... so you need 2 pieces of L channel, one for the top, one for the bottom.  I just screw it into the wood on the top and bottom...

I'll see if I can find a pic.

L channels would make sense, but I ordered your 1-Player kit back in the summer and you sent me just U shaped pieces.  That's where I was getting confused.

Ahh, reading comprehension fail on my part.  U-channel is just decorative, really, goes on the left / right sides of the plexi.

Ok, that solves the mystery of what the U pieces are for, but I still don't have a way to mount the plexi.  Were you sending out L-Channel pieces at one time?  Did I just not get any?

Can you send me a picture of all of these pieces installed?  Maybe have it as part of your installation pictures in the first post?

No, I was not sending out L - channel...  I did find a source of some nice matte black plastic L-channel, I could send you a couple of pieces if you like.  The place I get from has a minimum order. 

As for pics, this what I could find at the moment...  see the two silver color screws?  They are holding the L-channel on.

And one more question just because I am at work and planning on going by the hardware store on the way home...  what is the width of the marquee plexi on a 1-player cab?  I am gonna go by and look for L-brackets that could work and can't get home to measure the cab.

EDIT: Nevermind.  I see in the first post the width of the CP is 17.72" so I can assume the plexi is the same width.  Thanks, though.

I usually lay the bartop face down, rest the plexi in, set the monitor on top of the plexi, and mount it that way.

You are correct sir!  Still a prototype, haven't done a final production run yet.  Need to test in an assembled cabinet, which will happen very soon.   :cheers:

Just a simple fightstick, should be very affordable.  Has an additional button hole on the back, and a 24mm hole for a Neutrick USB pass-through.

I'll be honest. While most of your designs look great, I'm not really loving the look of this one. (You know me. I consider you a friend, so it's certainly not sour grapes on my part.)

yup, the taller side walls, joystick placement, button count and placement, all completely identical! I guess if you get a blank from Rick or Haruman you dont get the high quality buttons or stick or the top of the line encoder, so thats another reason to go Xarcade. /sarcasm

[!!!Topic derailment incoming!!!]

 :soapbox:
Sorry, maybe I missed something in my absence (and by absence, i mean not being able to check the forum several times a day like a used to), but what is all the hate recently with anything being designed / built from a kit these days?

I mean, the kits I've seen come out of the community here lately have been top-notch quality, and using pretty much the same materials if they were built any other way. We are not all lucky enough to have access to the same tools or workshop space, so I consider these a godsend.

Sure, some of what I saw as recently as 5 years ago was not very impressive. And some products I've seen being sold elsewhere on-line still fall into that "questionable quality" category. But not internally here.

Is it the influx of more bar-top builds and less "true restoration" threads? People being considered lazy? The designs? I just don't see the cause for the venom. Not trying to stir a hornet's nest, genuinely curious and I'll start a separate thread if needed.

[resume topic]

PBJ has always hated everything kit based. No one reads the restoration threads except people like me with active restoration projects
Title: Re: CNC Cut Bartop Kits - Orders Open! New Models Available!
Post by: yotsuya on January 17, 2014, 01:51:16 pm
That's just PBJ being PBJ.

I love my HaRuMaNCustoms cocktail kit. He basically did the heavy lifting part for me with the main body kit, and I've been able to give it my own touches. My plan was always to build from scratch, but it ended up saving me time. In fact, I've bought 5 kits from HaRuMaN over the past year, and we're working on the 6th right now. That means I qualify for a free sawhorse.

Oh, and I LOVE restorations.

Thanks but i was actually just looking for the button and joystick surrounds. the joystick surround sticker everyone tends to use is wrong. That's the champion edition surround. A variation of it is also used in street fighter 1

The problem is the Super Street fighter surround has a two tone triangular design. like the one below (the image shows super street fighter II button surround overlays on a street fighter II world warriors cp art)

So you are looking for something similar to this then ? ( I added the joystick surround to the other art you linked - it isn't perfect but should work - would probably work better as a vector rather than in PS but it's been awhile since I tried any vector work.)

Thanks. The weekend has been pretty busy so i took some time little by little to try to get the triangles symmetrical etc. my vector work is very rusty but so far i'm working on cleaning up the image and setting it to scale. So far, pretty decent. When I'm done, i'll upload what i have.

edit: Maybe a moderator can split these last few posts into the artwork section.

I believe a 19" could fit vertically but I would need to double check. 

Marquee is shrunk down to fit the cabinet.

I hope I'm not stepping on your thread HaRuMan - but have you seen these: 8bitlit.com

I backed it on Kickstarter and have had it hanging up for a while now.  You hit the bottom to turn it on / off and it makes the coin 'da-ding' noise - very cool.

Get out of my head! I was just going to PM you that very same edge design idea. Will the top/bottom panels be interchangeable? I'll be in for one, but I'd like to hang it with a light in from above. I'd assume you could use the same whole sizes for that regardless if you were using it as a floor standing lamp or hanging profile.

Nope, not interchangeable, however, my design will allow for bottom mounting (table, wall) and top mounting (hanging).  The mounts aren't shown in the picture here.  :)  I've got a good line on some lamp hardware that will work really well for these.

I used cold cathode lights with the included velcro for mine, worked pretty well (installed after assembly).

The widescreen is simply the weecade (standard) bartop with the internal panels stretched to 22".  The sides are the same. 

I can still host them somewhere if you need them.

Thanks .  I emailed you on your site about buying 3-5 units.  Do you do a discount?  If you have the CNC plans yes, then I will take them if its not too much trouble.  Either way, if you send them, we still want to buy some units, I just want to build one with my son for fun. 

Your the man!!

Hey guys!  Long time lurker on this post.  In fact, I went through page by page for the last day or so.  I gotta say HaRuMaN's designs and CNC production is amazing!  I really think you all collectively improve on the interest on bartop arcades.  It's incredible!  :applaud:  :notworthy:

Now that the gushfest is done.  I wanted to get down to some business.  Oh yes, I want one.  I wanted to know a few things.  I've scanned back in the last 2 pages of this post and I gotta say, I love that Nintendo design.  It's really awesome.  I am for sure interested in getting one that will fit a 19" vertically.  Has anyone tried this?  If so, do we have any real pictures of this?

HaRuMaN - If I intend to get the Nintendo version, I wanted to know how the plexiglass situation goes.  How does it mount?  Also were you able to experiment with Nintendo buttons?  Will they clear?  Forgive me on my ignorance here, I just didn't see much detail on this.  We could move this over to a PM if needed.

Thanks,
Spencer

I am pretty certain a 19" will mount vertically, I have one at home I can measure to double check. 

The marquee is held on at the top with a piece of L-channel, and at the bottom with a piece of H-channel.  The top of the bezel fits into the bottom of the H-chanel, and I have a mounting slot at the bottom for the bezel.

Got a drawing or pictures of Nintendo buttons?  I don't see what would cause them not to clear, but I would need to see some to be sure.

Thanks!

Right on, Lee.  I appreciate the response.  Here is what I can dig up (attached below).  I imagine it would be okay, I figured I would ask.

Is the h-channel and t-channel included in the price for the marquee and monitor plexi?  I saw a few folks were showing off cabarets.  Have you thoughts about getting these done through a CNC guy?  If so, do you have an idea of cost to do it (maybe a ball park on shipping?)?  It's not for me, but I have a friend whom I was telling him about all the work and success you had on these bartops.  Then I started showing him some of the testimonials.   ;D

Yeah, that button should fine.  H & L channel are available for an additional $15.  I custom cut them to size to fit each cab. 

I have drawn plans up for a cabaret, I think I got an estimate from my CNC guy, let me take a look.

It's totally a judgment call, really. I ordered Jiffy Sticks (Sanwa clones) and with regular shafts and using 5/8" MDF, they fit well into my bartop.

I personally wouldn't install longer shafts, but to each his own.
