It's a site/forum that mostly focuses on restoration/repair/collection of original arcade hardware, from what I can see.

It's the arcade-museum site and forums -- a great resource for finding info and parts for dedicated cabs.

When you do send them a p.m. there, make sure you tell him I sent you.

^^^^This is good advice.^^^^

...how much did you roughly spend on everything for this build?

a LOT.  Lost track past $5500 Canadian, (whats that like $50 USD??).  But thats including a TON of parts and supplies i didn't use, or had to buy replacements of if i messed something up.   This build was my first, a labor of love, and an all out balls to the wall effort of throwing money at things until they were how i imagined them.

...Just, would have used plexi instead of glass...  ::)

thanks for the reply. I am debating making it myself or getting PDX to make it. trying to see how much I would be saving doing it myself. (which in turn could mean jack if I end up messing up over and over)

Hi Chance!

Awesome build, and a pleasure to read through the log.

Quick question: I love the glow effect around the joysticks. Where did you source the polycarbonate tubing for the "glow rings"? I found one place online but they wanted an arm and a leg for it (and the other arm + leg to ship it!)
Also, since I see you're in Alberta, do you have any of the tubing left over that you'd want to get rid of? :)

Cheers

Yes, eBay.

I may have some of it leftover.

Thanks for the help, guys! Once I have enough things in order I'll likely start up a build thread of my own. The threads / worklogs on this forum are super inspiring (especially this one!)

Great build!

Just wanted to ask what those 4 black knob looking things are in the control panel?

I've seen them in numerous other builds too

On another note, glad to see another Canadian on this forum

They're what they look like. Star Knobs. The bolts come upward, through the board that the control panel rests on. The control panel base has holes the the bolts pass through, and the knobs secure the panel to the cabinet. They just make it easy to remove the panel without tools.

...Once i was happy with the base, i lined up the CP centre with the cab, clamped it down and used the same small forester bit to cut holes through the CP and mounting board. The bolts shown in the picture are just temporary ones i had in case i went with a thicker mounting board. I need to get shorter ones or cut these down.
