  • Cabinet builder to the stars!
Just realized I had not put anything out on ArcadeControls around the cabinet work we have been doing for others.

some of my builds have been on here and other forums, Big Bang Bar was even part of the 2011 BYOC selection.

We offer traditional pin and pinball 2000 style cabinet kits for use as replacement pin cabinets or Virtual Pins.

We also do a lot of other cool stuff for pinball and arcades and pretty much any other CNC work.

please visit the site, its constantly having items added to it.
www.xtremepinball.com



latest thing we are working on is a min pin, here's some POC pictures. designed for a 32" screen and 24" backglass but we can customize to your needs.




recent Golden Tee ped added to the offering.

 :cheers:

within reason, (size, detail, depth). yes
Also depends if you want the design to be simply line based or if you want to remove material from certain area's. here's a couple of other similar images I did on some of the pin and other builds.

I'd be really, really interested in seeing you carve something from 5/8" black melamine. You know, for science.

;)

(Oh, ok. I'll share. I would like to see it, to see if I was able to send over an order of a bunch of logo'd panels. Imagine that. You look on the back of one of my bartops, and see my logo engraved into it, instead of just on a sticker. Heck, Macattack can sell this service out to all of us who don't have access to the extra tools - or don't want to pay our CNC guys for the cost of testing and swapping 'em out.)

Nice work, good sir. Nice work.

Lol Thanks, I happen to have some scrap 3/4" black melamine peices from some recent upright arcades I built for vpcabs.com (I do all the CNC work for them). I can give it a try, see what it comes out like given the brittle nature of the melamine. stay tuned.

Taking a look at your pinball flatpacks, is there a recommended display that drops in these well, with minimal/no visible bezel to the user (for both playfield and backglass)?

Taking a look at your pinball flatpacks, is there a recommended display that drops in these well, with minimal/no visible bezel to the user (for both playfield and backglass)?

really depends on how much work you want to do and how you want to setup the cab.

currently the 2 items on the website are simply the std and widebody width.

For a std cab or widebody you have 3 options
a. a screen size that will fit within the side rails (either cased or decased)
b. a screen size that will sit ontop of the side rails if you notch them
c. a screen size that will fit inside the cabinet if you slot it to accept it.

for a std cab:
a. you are really limited to a 39" max. there was one westinghouse that fit without decasing but its not end of line (EW39T6MZ or EW39T4LZ)  pretty much anything else i have run across needs to be decased to fit and depending on the monitor even then maybe not and your left with using a 37"
b. most thin 40's are about the width of the cab (22") so as long as it has even bezel sizes top and bottom it should work fine. I did this with a phillips 40" led. you just need to mind how thick it is and how this works with flipper locations.
c. Again, a larger 39" or even a thin 40 can work. I fitted a 40" samsung in a std pin with minimal slotting (http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/UN40ES6003FXZA-specs)

for a widebody
a. largest you can go and fit inside the rails seems to be 42" (cased)
b. a 46" can sit on the rails, again like the std pin, need to watch the flipper locations
c. 46" with slotting is the largest you can fit in a widebody. This is a good size as it fills the cabinet and is closest to a real pin size for the table.

With anything other than the 46" you will have empty space beyond the monitor (assuming you bring it down to the lockbar) you would need to either fill that space with a panel or if you slot the cab you can install the flashers beyond in a wall as we often do, or you can shorten the cab length and get custom glass to remove this dead space.

Also when i am talking about widebody we are referring to the std WPC style widebody that you can buy lockbars for, not the super wides of old.

for backglass, a 30" lcd is pretty much spot on but near impossible or expensize to find, a 29" TV is the best for this, you can leave it cased and only need to create a small trim panel or black out a plexi sheet to hide its case.
DMD, either go real with a pindmd or use a 15.6" monitor.
a 29" and 15.6" fit perfect in a std backbox.

Also one item I need to add to the website is the "journey" cabinet.

It's a pin cabinet cut "anyway you want it " ;)

Don't stop believing.

Taking a look at your pinball flatpacks, is there a recommended display that drops in these well, with minimal/no visible bezel to the user (for both playfield and backglass)?

really depends on how much work you want to do and how you want to setup the cab.

currently the 2 items on the website are simply the std and widebody width.

for backglass, a 30" lcd is pretty much spot on but near impossible or expensize to find, a 29" TV is the best for this, you can leave it cased and only need to create a small trim panel or black out a plexi sheet to hide its case.
DMD, either go real with a pindmd or use a 15.6" monitor.
a 29" and 15.6" fit perfect in a std backbox.
Thanks.  I've seen a few cabs using the Hannspree 28" "football" TV (for the 16x10 aspect ratio.  Anyone here doing something similar?
