  • 17/21 Inch COCKTAIL CABINET PLANS

    Hey all, I just thought I'd post these plans for anyone who is interested.
    When I first got intrested in MAME in 2006 I found it hard to find any plans for an aussie style LAI/TAITO Cocktail Cab.
    After alot of hours searching for easy to understand plans without much success, I decided to measure up a few original cabs and draw my own plans up.
    Initially I designed it to suit a 17" IBM monitor rotated but then found that a 21" SUN Microsystems Flatscreen mounted horizontally will squeeze into this design perfectly
    Heres the finished results...

    I have changed the size of the metal used for the legs to 25x50x1.5mm tube, it looks more in proportion to the original tables. End caps can be found at Clark Rubber.

        Don't forget to double check each dimension before cutting..

                  Mainly the finished product & the internal ones to see how everything has been mounted up.

                        So is that a decased 21" CRT?

                        What finish is on the cabinet's?

                        What front end do you have running?

                        I see you have built a few spares as well.

                        Also how are the CP's attached?



                        Cheers, very nice post,

                          The monitors I have been using are 21" Sun Microsystems Trinitron Flatscreen.
                          The sun was the only one I could find that was symmetrical top and bottom.
                          I either paint the cabs black or use a good quality German Adhesive Vinyl for the woodgrain look.
                          Control panels are screwed in from the inside.
                          I have been using Game Launcher with TS Gamelauncher Tools to setup lists but I think I'll switch to Mala with GLauncher Menu skin.
                          The spare cabs are all gone but I am doing another run right now if anyone is interested.

                            Thanks for the quick response.

                            For those that would like a new cabinet you need to post your location....

                            I would be interested in lots of details and photos...

                            Perhaps a dedicated build thread which can be stickied for future generations to admire...

                            Reason - I'm gonna try and build one of these for the 21" CRT I have in the shed..

                              How much do you think it cost you all up without the computer/monitor?

                              So wood, glass, buttons, legs etc?

                              I'm very impressed by the finish. Well done.
