1  General Chat / 'Business' Area : Buy/Sell/Trade / Free 20/21" TV with SCART - London UK on: August 04, 2014, 05:42:21 PM
Hi gang

I need to get rid of this TV in the next week - it has SCART input so you know it can be used as an arcade monitor.

All yours, or it has to go to the tip...

If you can help me out send me a message!

You're truly an inspiration Nuno. It was this thread that got me back into arcade gaming.
Just starting out, but yeah - this is the dream to chase.

Great! I'll watch with interest. This guy didn't have much luck getting measurements, but his email's there maybe he got them eventually?

Hi Hi,

The head on those look like these ones that I've bought from these guys previously:



Though the thread is different - they do up to 1" length.

No love for the 1985 SR5 ??


Considering you can get one these days for the price of an arcade cabinet - one of these would be a good restore project!

Thanks guys!  Smiley

Yeah I have a rom burner too, which I haven't put to use with arcade PCBs. Though I'm watching out for the right boards on ebay.com.au. Ready to burn.

Hi gang

I've been lurking round for a while as a guest, thought I should say hi!

One cultural thing I've found from growing up in New Zealand, and currently living in Australia, is that there weren't many full genuine cabinets we played on growing up. They were mostly boards and marquees only in generic "lowboy" cabs, I expect the cost to ship them by the local distributors was too high to bring out the original cabs. Because of this there aren't as many original cabs down under.

So the prices are jacked up, and people didn't grow up right because they think this kind of thing looks good!

When I was living in the UK I built my "ultimate" MAME cab:

(though the monitor stopped working after a recent move..)

but the lure of having a room of "original" cabs has proved too much. I finally got myself a shed, so I've started getting bits for a few projects.

 Cool Gyruss scratch built replica
 Tongue Galaga scratch built replica
 Undecided 70% size Donkey Kong (for my daughter)
 Twisted 70% size Moon Patrol (for my nephew)
 shock Roadblasters cockpit scratch built replica (no room for this currently - will start when I finish the man cave)

I've pretty much given up my old hobby of "restoring" (read: shamelessly modifying) Commodore 64s. (re-64.com)
On to bigger and better.

Any other members down under? Would be great to club in with some folks and get a container of cabs from the US - one day.

Anyway so that's me.

-> "Hi"

Also - if anyone could measure up the glass that would be super..!

Hey guys, I'm building a Gyruss from scratch. This info has been crucial so far, but there are some bits and pieces missing from the thread.
Could anyone who has one help me out with some dimensions?

Once I'm done I'd like to put the info together into some jakobud style plans.

Excited though! I only have the control panel and a handful of bits so far.

Hi Frank,

They look pretty good! What's the weight and dimensions so we can calculate postage elsewhere?
(e.g. Australia)
