Building a Multi Cabinet

So has promised when I introduced myself, there is my current project

At first it was to build a Guncab but my twisted brain got me further

The Project is to build a cabinet for screen and systems and to couple with movable panels to optimize space and "stock" more easy

First a module for 2 players 6 buttons and space vacancy for lightguns (Aimtrack or Dolphin Bar yet to choose)

Second a Hard DDR panel with a PS2 Hackpad or a control card zero delay regarding to the cheap price nowaday

Third : 2DoF sim with a G27 wheel

Fourth : Homemade Pop'n'Music Panel

To plug modules to screen cab it'll be DB25 plugs for supergun and a Usb Hub for PC and PS3

Systems inside :

– Supergun with SEGA ST-V

– PC with VGA to Scart card for Model2/3 and other Emu for driving sims and Lightgun games

– PS3 with Gti Club and OutRun2

The screen will be a 33" Sony Trinitron (A 40" LCD can fit if necessary)

This was the Projet, but this week I jumped in !


Start with the bottom, purpose was to be able to move the cab but not to allways check moves so 2 homemade feets on front





Then you reinforce a side






Repeat for next side




Checking vacancy inside for the door before putting TV stand, time to put stands for a board for Supergun and power supply


Test with a smaller Trinitron (28") and to check if the plan was right for the topper emplacement.

Creating toppers and cutting "triangles" so the cabinet won't look like a wardrobe. Putting hinges for backdoor as well


Next moves :

Put Metal kick guard to lock front door as weel

Put light in the topper

Prepare supergun cables and attach Female DB25 on front left

Find infos on "magnifing screens" like the Super Megalo (prices and above all if there is problems with lightgun with this kind of screens)

Create a Bezel that fit with the screen

Finally decide which color to paint or if going on a vinyl

But I think next move would more be building the first "movable panel" with sticks and buttons to check if everything was worth the work ^^

So this afternoon because it's Sunday (no noise) and weather is more than ok this is outside Soldering work
