So what do I do when I have a few minutes of free time? I build and fix arcade and pinball machines. In and around the late 1990’s I was introduced to the MAME program. With this one program you could run thousands of old arcade games!–just like the ones I used to feed quarters to in the mid 80’s. Then after coming across ARCADECONTROLS.com and seeing the cabinets I was hooked.
My first machine was an old berzerk machine circa 2001-2 or so:
In 2003-4 I finished another machine and started on a miniaturized version that played fewer games but took up way less space.
Main control panel Dual joystick Dual steering wheels
Then later in 2004 I also started one of my most ambitious projects. A completely scratch built machine with swappable control panels including built in gas/brake pedals and dual player light guns. I really wanted a machine that could play everything and wanted a challenge as well.
I also built a few in the meantime...
Really liked this one...
And this one...
This little beauty was built just cause I like building the little bartop machines.
To be continued...
As many inspectors will attest, December is typically a slow month. So this year I built this one for a guy to give to his kids for Christmas. This was built in less than 3 weeks and is probably the fastest built machine I have ever done!
