A Super Easy Arcade Machine from 1 Sheet of Plywood
What are the dimensions for the side pieces? The image is hard to read and these are the only numbers I can't determine.
I finished my Vigolix Pac-Man cabinet. I love how it came out. I still need to install the marquee light and put a back on it but it is basically done. When I started I had never done anything like this. If you don't think you can make one then think again. You'll learn a lot!
Working on a Pac-man vigolix. I bought the red t-molding but now I realize it should have been orange. I'm rolling with it! Thanks Vigo! I've always dreamed of owning my own arcade cabinet.
2nd one made and plexi glass was held on with 4 blocks of timber 30mm x 30mm screwed to cab and silicone glue between plexi glass and timber block - Nick27172

Thanks for this! I am now planning a table-top portable retro arcade box powered by RPi3B and a large LiPo battery that should last for many hours on a a charge. I am fiddling with MAME for Raspian right now, but it's tricky...
No. The original plans will work with the controller. Except the controls will stick out wider. At 1.5x it looks a little more proportionate.
Did you have to go 1.5 on all your dimensions to make the x-arcade controller to fit?
How/where did you get the sticker around the screen?
Wow, really nice finish!! Very good looking!!I may use your way of attaching CP to body (I'm in that stage now) and maybe add a drawer under CP for keyboard and mouse (I'll be using a RPi). If I get lazy, I'll use ssh XXDDMy machine... so far, so good. I'll post pictures when I finish.Same question as Pucksnok1, how did you secure your plexi?Thanks!
Made a few adjustments here and there but quite happy with the results. Might do a bit of back-lighting behind the marquee later.
Pretty much finished ?
That looks fab! How do you secure your glass/plexi?
yessir! I used the 4x6 sheet of plywood and scaled everything up. I doubled the width and kept scale with the height being 6' instead of 4'.
Sorry to bother but are these done using the same plans, just a bigger sheet of wood? Also what are the dimensions of the finished product?
