Mameman CNC Fun

Recommended Posts

I liked the topper you made. Any more pictures of it lit up?

couple of the test unit. I would see the production units being around 24" long and 6" tall.

very nice mameman. And seeing as you dont live that far, I might have to make the drive up and get something from you. A nice big winged wheel comes to mind :)

lovely - looks like bartop mame cab :)

not a bad idea, was thinking of cutting some bartops, i have done some mini pacman cabinets already. but a bartop using the shape of the p2k head could be cool :):top:

Hey mameman... I've been looking for someone with some CNC skills. I'm looking to have a panel made that has inputs for all original console controls. Such as:

2 x Nintendo NES

2 or 4 x Super NES

2 or 4 x Sega Genesis/Atari 2600

4 x Nintendo 64

4 x USB

4 x Dreamcast

and a couple others that I can't think of right now. I need a panel created that has the proper cutouts so the original controllers can be plugged in. My issue is that I can't figure out the sizes for the proper control port cutouts.

so are you saying the panel needs to have the female/male version of what the control has so you can have a central place to plug each of these in? I assume that from this opposite control panel each one would extend back to the device itself?

making the panel to accept these in thin aluminum and even engraving it is not that difficult. finding the correct connectors maybe more so. unless i guess you cut up enough machines to harvest the connectors. This also assumes they have a acceptable way of mounting them to the panel and are not cast into the housing. did they make extenstion game controler cables for most of those over the decades?

rather than stick these posts in one of the build threads, I thought I'd create a thread with some of my latest CNC fun :)

Zeb, mentioned fake coin doors this afternoon, an hour later we have this!

have not tried it yet but the coin eject holes should be cut to accept the plastic inserts you can get so with a coat of black and a couple cheap inserts it would probably look fairly convincing.

Wow. Just... wow. :)

You could buy Cable extenders for each console custom cut the holes then mount/glue them into place in the hole. Save Consoles and the extenders can be had for a couple bucks here and there. Just a thought.

I have a pretty vast collection of extension cables and salvaged ports from consoles. My idea is to keep all my controllers original since I still have working consoles for them. I have several homemade adapters that use chips from Raphnet to connect via USB. I have a couple adapters from retrousb.com.

sounds like a plan, draw up what you are thinking it should look like and send it over will see what i think i could do with it.

Looks cool for the theme. Like always - amazing quality!

Guessing the 2 center cutouts is 1 for the DMD, and 1 for a logo?

yeah, bottom one will have an acrylic insert that will be lit with the BSG words/logo

That's too cool. I'm way jealous.
