Step 14: Bezel Buttons and Flip Down Door


The bezel should be already cut and painted.

- If installing a QuickKey Adapter follow these steps

- Figure out the spacing and mark then drill the holes for the buttons, use a 9/64" drill bit

- Solder up all the buttons onto the perf-board, all the buttons should have 1 lead wired in parallel, that will be ground.

- Sold a wire to the other button's lead, and connect that using the headers/housings to the controller.

- Insert the perfboard button assembly into the holes and secure with tape or hotglue.

Bezel Artwork:

- Done in colored vinyl and printed decals art is in the ZIP file.

- The buttons on the bottom are optional, but are used in conjunction with a QuickKey Adapter. Which is a HID keyboard, with each of the 9 buttons on the bezel linked to a hotkey. Such as Minimize, maximize, show desktop, open TouchScreen Launcher, Close Program, Alt+Ctrl+Delete(open task manager) and more.

- The button decals were printed and laminated, the artwork is available in the ZIP file.

Keyboard Flip Down Door:

- Forgot to take a picture, but an image of it is shown below. Art is available in the ZIP file

- Applied the decals to the painted Masonite. This was done in colored vinyl and printed decals.

- Installed the Push In to open style cabinet latches from the hardware store, one for each side, but I glued the metal contact part on rather than screwing them. Used Liquid Nails for that.

Hello i have been searching EVERYWHERE and emailing TONS of people but nobody helps. I have it built all the way but just need to know how to wire the monitor, mobo, speakers, and marquee light together so that they all turn on at the same time from one push button on the back. Please reply asap or if anyone else can help, please email me to "deeznuts4298@yahoo.com". thanks
All the lights and audio amp are hooked up to the PC's power supply from a spare Molex(Hard drive and CD-Drive) connector, so when I hit the computer's power button it starts the power supply which turns on the lights, the audio amp and the monitor turns on when the PC boots. But if you are using speakers with their own PSU you will need to find a power strip with a on/off switch and set the computer to boot when it gets power.
I've read through several times. Also visited your website. I can't find any details on the dimensions of the side panels. Since you've included details for every other piece of wood, I'm guessing this was just an oversight. Although I could just approximate my own from the photos, I'd rather not reinvent the wheel. I might have to make a slight modification depending on how my monitor fits, otherwise I see no reason not to follow your dimensions. <br> <br>Other than that, I think I follow everything else and am ready to start building.
It was an oversight, since I had full size print of the side panels that I used. I amended Step 2 with a diagram that shows the lengths.
This is great! 4.5 stars, plus, I've added this to the &quot;Arcade Machines&quot; guide.
Awesome build, thanks for sharing!
