    Cheers!
    The router bit is called a 'locking mitre' bit. It needs to be the version that does 3/4" wide timber (on the angled edge, as per middle one in the pic). I think I just got mine through ebay, it was a long time ago now.
    I should add that you only need one bit to do both male and female edges for a corner. One edge is routed side on, and the other is routed end on, making sure angles are on the right side of the cab when doing so or you will have things facing the wrong way when you put them together . I guess a better way to explain it is I have the router mounted in a bench, I put one panel through (the large side panels) laying flat on the bench, and I put the smaller (front and back) panels through standing up.



    Thanks for checking @jono .
    Yeah probably best to measure against a TAF. @Turbo27 could you check your TAF cab on the measurements for the PF pivot nut as described above by any chance please?

    Great to see the cabinet making in progress. Nice work.

    Only one Iíve done was for my virtual cab modelled off Judge Dredd with some custom changes.

    Most of my mitre joints, I do the lot with a circular saw. Even the slots.

    Recently did a new front for Cleopatra all with saw.
    Really need to get router bits again.

    I had measurements for the pivot hinge but would need to find them.
    If you could wait until mid next week, Iíll be back and can get precise position as TAF still has the playfield out
    And correct, itís pivot point not sliders.

    Keep the updates flowing.
    Canít wait until I only have one game at a time to do.

    Cabinet pivot points as requested.
    NOT TO SCALE drawing.
    Hope you can read my scribble.

    Awesome Trent, thankyou!!

    - - - Updated - - -

    Slot now cut for backglass



    Added timber for lock and trim



    Air holes and wiring inlet cut.



    Bolt holes drilled and bolts knocked in to pre-cut locking square edges, this should mean I am not swinging a hammer at my newly painted/decaled cab later ..

    Just some more cabinetry fun, with alot of back and forwards with Turbo27 to make sure hole placement is correct for everything.
    Just an FYI - Didnt realise before, but the lockdown assembly on the later gen WPC cab's has the right side bolt around 10mm to the left of the previous gen, who knows why but hopefully it doesnt bite me in the bum.
    Also, the start button's seem to be in defferent locations depending on machine.
    WPC cabs all look the same, but so far I have noticed location variations for the following;

    - Shooter location
    - P/F Pivot nut height
    - Start button
    - Lockdown bar holes

    Once again, thanks @Turbo27 , would have been a disaster without your help!!

    Mark out front of cab..



    Nervously cut things out..



    Sit the headbox in place and mark out locations for hinge brackets and bolts.



    Trial fit with brackets and bolts.







    Time for a coldy !!
