  1. I am on the look out for a coin box if someone has one spare. Dimensions of the hole is 90mm x 115mm. I have pictures of my restore here .
  2. Legs back on last night. Now to move it inside for wiring up as getting too cold in the shed. I am also on the look out for a coin box if someone has one spare. Dimensions of the hole is 90mm x 115mm.
  3. I have been meaning to start this tread for a few days but bloody PSU went in PC so been trying to fix. This is my first so please be gentle and no comments about the purple and messy workbench.:o As some of you may have seen I purchased a EIKOKU SPACE-AGENT from Ebay and this is how it looked. First thing was repairing the top as the ply had separated and split and was falling off the hinges. After lots of glue and clamping it is now back solid again. Next was the legs. I thought about sanding and painting myself but I got the sandblasted and powder coated for $40 so I wasnt going to waste my time Now onto the control panel while waiting for the legs. This is how they started. After a lot of thought I decided to keep the original decals and not paint over them even they do look pretty dodgy but I wanted to keep some of he originality about the machine. The decision was based on the fact I can paint them down the track if it annoys me. Also putting round buttons into square hole proved a challenge. After consultation with some guys at work it was decided to modify the holes and again maybe in the future put large washers behind the buttons to try and cover the gaps left from the square holes. I also managed to get the spacing a little better than the pictures show on the red buttons. And here is the final product. The legs have been finished now all nice and shiny. Now onto the cabinet. After some help from Dave to remove the old monitor and reading on one of the thread here I bogged up the holes and missing laminate to make it smooth. There was lots more done but I must of only took one pic. Also on advice from the Aussie Arcade forum I decided to use woodgrain contact from the craft section at Bunnings as laminate was too expensive and this stuff is $3.50 a roll and I only need 2. Also I found more contact called blackboard which I am using for the bottom. Others may disagree but I think it is more than an adequate substitute and you have to look close and have the right light to notice the bubbles. I will be using it again. And this i where I am up to. 1 side completed with all woodgrain contact on and 3 sides to go off the black. Next step will be to put the legs back on. The wire up buttons, joysticks and power. Work out how to/best way to mount the LCD. Then finally buy the glass.
  4. I have taken a few pics as I have gone along just gotta post them. I will probably start a restore thread over the weekend but I have been hesitating a little as I am going to put in an LCD and I guess a lot of you guys will probably be horrified with that. I gave the PCB and monitor away this afternoon so sorry its gone.
  5. [ATTACH=CONFIG]50859[/ATTACH] Sorry started stripping already. Dropped legs off to the powder coaters today.
  6. Thanks for all of the valuable input. Looks like the problem will be solved with the help of daveb. I was actually blown away by the number of people that took the time to answer such a noob question.
  7. I want to remove a monitor and chassis from a cocktail and throw it away. There seems to be varying opinion on the internet as to if you need to discharge the monitor. I dont have the tools to discharge so wondering if anyone has removed without discharging.
  8. Looks like I have someone that wants it and can pickup. Happy to see go to a good home and not to the dump.
  9. Yep its free. Dont know if it works though. But sorry pickup only as I couldnt be bothered packing it and posting.
  10. Sorry but I have never heard of a game "TC-001-A-1" or "REMOVAL OF LABEL VOIDS WARRANTY".
  11. I purchased a cocktail cab from Ebay today and this board was in it. I plan to gut the cab so I dont require this but would be interested if someone could tell me if it is "Galaxian X". The cab fires up but noting shows on the monitor.
  12. Hi. I am just starting get into this scene with a IPM Invader cocktail that is all original I am fixing up and also a EIKOKU SPACE-AGENT table I just purchased that I am going to gut and turn into a 60 in 1. Any help will be much appreciated and I am sure I am going to have lots of questions. Russell.
