  • 48in1 caberet project

    got this cab today. all works and is nice and neat

    for $100 i was happy. planning to make it a 48 as i sold my last 2 or a galaxian 2in1 as i have that too








    last pic i spun the monitor around to see if it was possible

    planning to do a full rewire and tidy up the CP that is the major things to do. ordered new buttons and jamma harness from jason and should arrive next week

    Looks good narf, should tidy up well.

    Can I suggest that 'extra room' above the screen could be used to make a backlit marquee underneath the glass? (ie cut out a hole in the frame thats holding the monitor, put a print over it). It'll make use of that space above the monitor and make up for it not having a dedicated marquee area.

      Hmm the wiring has to be the tidiest I have seen on a "just received" cab in a while! Normally a mess of splices and electrical tape unvolved

      Any reason you need to do a full rewire?

      Cheers

        Nice score Narf. Looks very tidy!

        Great idea DM about the marquee. Looks odd the way it is.

          Agreed, what the hell is with that coin face plate? There's NO scratching around it from all the drunken players missing the coin slot.

            cheers dale

            on my original one i made a custom bezel that neated that area up. i am thinking of doing something in that area since my last one (perhaps custom light box)

            the operator i got these off used to be very anal about how they did wiring. everything on there cabs was molex plugged so you could take out sections of wiring to repair without taking apart the entire machine.

            CP is off to powerdcoaters next week if there open still. coin mech works great too

            jacob it is custom wired to suit poker pcbs. so that is why i plan to rewire

                        mrs took over the computer so took some time to remove all the wiring and label it all

                        also had a go at making a new overlay with a spare sticker i had done in the sandex finish



                        should look nice when the CP is tidied

                          Hey Narf, a kind of unrelated question:

                          In your thread title you said "caberet". I've noticed many people using this word (as opposed to cabinet).

                          I was under the impression that "Caberet" (pronounced cab-er-ray) was a singing and dancing show?

                          Is this a (common) typo or is it a word I'm not familiar with used to describe mini cabinets or something?

                            Dunno why but it is a reference to mini style cabs.

                            Throw it into google. Robotron Cabaret.

                              How bizzare... all these years I've thought it was a typo.

                              I think I'm going to stick to 'cabinet' though, I cant get the singing/dancing show out of my head
