no previous part Part 1 of Arcade series no next part

So I started yesterday my first arcade (making 2 similar units at the same time), from 19mm MDF.


Just used a router with a strait bit and a drill for the first piece, and a template bit for making the other 3.

The size is about 185cm tall and 54cm deep, the length will be about 84cm, to accommodate comfortably 2 players.

Ive always wanted a tabletop Ms. Pacman … and the addams family pinball.

Hmm, I wouldn’t know anything about building arcade machines….

Looks like you’ve got the starts for two wonderful machines.
