Update! I'm working on the control panel.

Still need to figure out a way to connect the control panel to the cab. How have other people done this? Pics would be great!

I want to be able to attach and detach it from the cabinet, while still being as sturdy as possible. Any suggestions guys?

Hi Mani,

For the electric connection?

You use a computer? Why don't use USB connection?

do you want the whole 2 player panel, wood and all, to be removeable? or do you mean how do you connect the deck(top) to the rest of the control panel?

I'm trying to figure out what mechanism you use the latch it on firmly and have it removable afterwards.

Any pictures of how this part works would be great! :)

Thank you HazzardActual. Remember looking at these at one point. Might as well buy a couple and test how sturdy they feel. Wont be leaning on the control panel or anything like that, but I don't want to be anxious about it breaking off during a heated one on one session! :P

Sweet! Thanks.

My grandfather was a furniture maker. I'm using his workshop. It's very likely that he has something similar to this laying around. Would just rather be prepared if I have to change the design in order to fit the latches onto the control panel.

      Hi All 
       
      I have been lurking on these forums for a few months trying to get my head around Hyperspin with varying degrees of success and then more failure however i have put that on the back burner for a while whilst i build my 32 inch vewlix clone provided from Troy at Arcadeworx ( Perth , Australia).
       
      Just a quick background with regards to the machine build is as follows .
       
      I was searching the internet for plans to build a cabinet to house a PC running  Hyperspin and an Xbox 360 running RGH so i can copy all my current games onto it .
       
      Whilst i was doing this i found Arcadeworx and after some searching of their designs i decided to buy it and get the ball rolling .
       
      The price for the cabinet was approx $600 Australian dollars plus $ 100 delivery to Sydney which i had no issue with .
       
      I should have stopped there however i spent another 20 minutes looking through the internet and found a Vewlix machine machine ( 32 inch 2 player ) about 2 hours from me that a guy wanted $700 for , The Machine has a 600 in one jamma board installed which is nice but misses out on all the Mortal kombat games which is extremely dissapointing 
       
      A decision was made that i should buy it and suffer my Wife's drama after , she was actually pretty happy with it once i got it home and even played street fighter 2 for an hour hahaha.
       
      In an ideal world i will build the MDF clone and sell the Vewlix at the end to recoup some costs however my 9 yr old does enjoy playing so i may keep both .
       
      I have put together the arcade cabinet now which took about an hour and i will keep you all updated on the build as it progresses .
       
      thanks all

      Well I have been reluctant to share my work on here since I find forums to be hyper critical but I figure its about time I show this thing off. I started this project last Feb. and am nearing completion. I wanted to build something unique but still very Japanese and also practical. It comes apart into two pieces at the base of the screen. I designed the thing in Adobe Illustrator working to scale. I'm still debating on what color to paint it. I really like the way it looks with white primer but a semi gloss epoxy paint coating would be nice as well. Let me know what you guys think. The latest thing I worked out was the backlit custom marquee at the top. Making the sticker mask and painting that was way more work than I wanted it to be.
