  • Reproduction Hankin Tabletop Project

    Long time follower of these forums, first time poster however.

    I thought i'd chime in with some details of what I have been working on lately. I've been busy laying out and designing the machine in a CAD package and have come up with the following...









    The build commences this weekend with the components being machined on a CNC machine.

    Progress pics to follow.

    Enjoy

          very presumptuous.

          I'll still build it anyway, perhaps other members might appreciate the blow by blow build.

            Gamemaster make the cabinets you can buy bare

            there is another guy on ebay that was selling them empty

            I think it was about $600 to $800 empty

            Materials will be $500 odd + your time

            Good luck with that, I have a CNC and a woodworking dept, But Guess what, I buy them already made.

            Cheaper

              Guess what, I have a CNC also.

              But I guess you want the last word, so feel free.

                Yep, this is how you treat new members to Aussie Arcade, with ignorance and arrogance

                I thought you were better than this BP?

                  Welcome to the forum, you will find a lot of help here, please ask if you need help.

                  There are quite a few members in adelaide, and help from other locations too.

                  You must be a cabinet maker to have a CNC

                  The Metalwork is the fun part, I guess, but you could always try to source second hand ones to restore??

                  Anyway, good luck, hope this makes amends, and you stick around to show us your creation

                    Jesus Wayne could you even be more negative!

                      welcome aboard, keep up the pics and show us see pics of your cnc in action (that it'll get most of us drooling)

                      Not too sure of the political comments above though ?

                        Welcome Bananaboat.
                        Id like to see your build on this.

                        I'll get around to building one of these one day, myself.

                          G'day Bananboat As Brad said we love a good build here.

                          Personally I find it much more satisfying to build something myself then to buy an soul less import

                            Ballypinball is now on a restricted account limited to posting in his own commercial section. We've had enough of his interference in general conversation on the forum which has been going on for years.
                            It seems BallyPinballs commercial interests are constantly conflicting with the general theme of AA which is solely for the benefit of the backyarder/collector/hobbiest.

                              I guess that'll learn him. I didnt think it was my place to point out he probably has some commercial interest at play - hence the attitude. Takes all sorts to make the world and that includes small minded attitudes too.

                              Thanks for the support everyone and general positive comments.
                              I'll try contribute as much as possible and provide plenty of pictures of the build as it progresses.

                              Thanks for the warm welcome.
