Dedrok Posted May 24 Share Posted May 24 Pretty much am finished on the custom old pokie to arcade conversion. My mate did most of the early work, IE: Stripping the unwanted bits out and wiring up the power supply, plus doing all the decals. I just had to finish off wiring in the decent joysticks. Instead of just the one. I wired in a 2nd joystick so the are both wired the same. Got a good 4way to Replace the basic one, to play games that need it , especially Pac-Man. Then added a 2nd 8way to the other side. Once I worked out the most comfortable spacing with the mounting plate, I went ahead and cut it out, drilled countersunk holes for the bolts and started to make them fit. Once everything was worked out and fitted, then had to remeasure and mark out the Perspex panel cover to suit the layout. Then cut / shape it to suit and drill out the holes, being careful not to crack or split the Perspex. Used a 22mm wood bit and did halfway from each side. Worked out with no dramas. Then opened up the holes with a special tool to make them 23mm - 24mm for the switch buttons. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
