A friend and I are looking to build a couple a couple of lowboys from some old cabinets with the help of a mate.
Yet all 20 inch monitors here in Newcastle are sold out, so we're needing to track a couple down...

Anyone know of somewhere that'd sell 'em in Newcastle or perhaps Sydney?

The 19" might be a good option if I cant get any 20"'s.

I haven't bought the 2 cabinets yet, although i can get them once i know i can get monitors for them. Would 21" fit into the little lowboys ok?
What would be the cost for two including chassis?

Well... if you can fit a 21" chassis and monitor into a lowboy i'll take 2 :)
anyone know offhand if that'd fit?

Pretty hard to fit a 21" VGA monitor (decased) into a lowbow, so I would imagine the same would be for an arcade tube.. It can be done but you have to stuff around with the angle of the monitor.. The angle has to be LESS (or more flat) so the tube tucks in out of the way of the back door.

Thanks for the heads up Woka.

Any news on the dimensions for the 21" monitor and chassis Mr Johns-Arcade?
Is 21" much deeper than a 20"?

Sorry, I have to dig one out and un-box it. I'll do this over the weekend and let you know.

ive had 2 cabs both with 51cm tubes in them (21 inch)

fitted no hassle with the rear door

only issue was since the tube is slightly larger i had to notch out about a 1/2 off the monitor mounts in a lai lowboy to make it fit (the trianglar wooden mounts)

last cab i sold had a 51 cm in it it had a metal support frame so bolted straight on
