Hi guys Idea I was bored at work one day, and got to thinking of a Raspberry Pi i had once, which I had built into a media center, and wondered if I could find any other "small" projects I could do with a Pi. I started googling around and found a few builds on arcade machines with games from my childhood and that's when it hit me! I want one of my own and instead of just buying one, I will of course make my own, so here goes nothing Inspiration http://www.instructables.com/id/2-Player-Bartop-Arcade-Machine-Powered-by-Pi/ Hardware - Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (900 Mhz QC CPU, 1 Gb RAM) I know it's overkill, but what the hell - Sandisk 8 Gb UC10 Micro SD card. - Samsung Syncmaster 203B monitor - Buttons and Joysticks Materials - MDF - T-molding - High gloss paint Let's get to it shall we. The plan is to make a table/bar arcade machine that is somewhat portable and easy to move. I will be using 12mm and 16mm MDF for the cabinet and will be aiming for a Piano black finish, along with some yellow T-molding for the edges. MDF cut at work on a panel saw for precise measurements: Measuring up for the cut of one of the side panels: Here we go: http://forums.bit-tech.net/album.php?albumid=2740&pictureid=42400 Side roughly cut out: Sanding: Both sides cut and some more sanding: To put the marquee together, I'm using something called no more nails, from Pattex. I've been using this while renovating our house, which we bought last year, and I must say I've been positively surprised of the glues capabilities and strength. For the monitor, I'm going to be using an old Samsung Syncmaster 203B, which I've had lying around. I've removed it's foot, since it won't really be needed anymore Front ready to be cut: Sun finally came out now to embrace the outdoor! Front cut out and it looks like it's a match! Mounting the screen, here I've used common metal straps for the mounting. I later discovered that the screen wouldn't stay levelled, so I've added some angle brackets to support the monitor. These are not shown here. Front, marquee and side assembly For the moment, everything is held in place with small angle brackets. I will add acrylic sealant to all the corners and edges for a nice tight and closed fit, before I add the paint Here I've added the brackets monitor support and levelling: Slowly coming together A rough test assembly to see if everything fits. Starting to look like something More to come later. I'm currently waiting for the delivery of my Pi, as well as the Joysticks and buttons I've ordered for the machine More to come later. Thanks for looking!
