Building a full size mame arcade cabinet start to finish

Building a full size mame arcade cabinet start to finish

So i was wondering how fast i could build a cabinet if i stopped fecking around most of the day, 4 hours apparently. this is sped up 12x in some parts and 8x in others.

I’ll post the real time video later so you can follow along

I'm designing my own MAME minimalist cab and wall mount monitor but that cab is baddass! Well done sir.

Uchiha Takeshi says:

Using an LED monitor isn’t the best for an arcade machine… I think and LCD or even a CRT will both look better and cost a lot less

Abs Delfuego says:

My friend you're absolutely right. just for you, the next vid will be using just minimal tools like a jig saw and a cheap drill. I've been meaning to do it for a while

Hiram Guerra says:

Easy to do when you have every tool imaginable. Cool stuff.

Not widescreen it should be 4:3

Fabio Coltro says:

Hello do sell ma me configured?

Michael Jensen says:

Dude, I love that you added the pinball flippers / shooter, and even a track ball, that's fucking awesome. 🙂

Dciplz says:

good work im doing the same thing soon

Abs Delfuego says:

They all have the exact same settings in options. That's an old version in the vid January 2017 release

Tomas Sivak says:

Which version is the mame emulator thanks

straccio says:

hi, i want to do mine myself, i'm searching a project, is possible to have the Measurements? thx

Closet says:

Awesome build. Im looking to build myself a 2p mame-station but the wife says no 🙁 If you build another arcade cabinet "stealth edition" i'd be very interested since Im out of ideas.
I also love the inclusion of the trackball. All the mame shells Ive looked at seems too complicated for a noob like me.

Amigo tei como passa as medidas pra eu fazer meu

Justin James says:

Hey mate, What kind of router bit are you using to cut out that timber?
Last machine I built I pre-cut with a jigsaw and then trimmed with a flush trim bit, but obviously what you're doing would be much much easier!
I'm assuming that it has a bearing on the arbor to trace along your jig?

Raija says:

Does it still run? did anybody buy it off of you? lol Also do you ever use high end wood for these things? like Oak or Redwood?

vortex42studios says:

Great video.

Armenius X says:

Do you sell them?


Hey m8, I contacted u months ago about getting some help with a build. Happy to say I got it about 1/3 way done. Cut the side panels and base. Put them together. Just waiting on buying a pc. I have the monitor and buttons too. Waiting on a joystick n amp etc. So was going to ask can u get good deals on pc's? I have a friend who said he can get them cheap through his work but yeh just shopping around as I was really impressed with your website n vids. Looks like you know alot about arcades man. Awesome. Really impressed. So yeh once I get more done maybe I could buy the pc from u and pay u for that and installing the software and configuring the control panel etc. The finishing touches. Anyway, I suppose I'll contact u asap when I can purchase the pc. But let us know if u can help or not? Cheers m8

Nice work bru, this has given me motivation to attempt my own build (buying in a flat pack though)

Larry Maxwell says:
