Arcade machine control board taking shape

By There are no tags 0 comments

My architect and custom furniture designer buddy got the pre-cut beechwood boards last week, and someow I managed to erase the photos he sent me of the two main side pieces. But I did save some photos of the control board: IMG-20150607-WA0002 IMG-20150607-WA0003 IMG-20150607-WA0004 IMG-20150607-WA0005 IMG-20150607-WA0006 IMG-20150607-WA0007 IMG-20150607-WA0008 IMG-20150607-WA0009

It´s a bit hard to make out, but the opening at the front in the last picture is where a drawer with the mouse and keyboard will go. The front of the drawer is the entire width of the control board, so that you can´t tell that the drawer even exists when it´s closed. This board is especially wide, so that I can comfortably play Street Fighter without elbowing the other player. Plus, a genuine Arkanoid spinner goes in the middle with buttons on either side.

When all the holes are drilled, I´ll start wiring everything up, including my custom-designed turbofire switches for all those shooting games. Those enemies in Truxton that always ended up getting me because Carpal Tunnel syndrome set in won´t know what hit’em!
