I'm a great fan of www.atarigames.com

There is SO much great stuff ALL about the Atari we all love.

Here's the newest video, luckily they put it up on youtube this time:

http://www.atarigames.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=225:sf-rush-cabinet-assembly-video&catid=10:other-video-game-related-videos&Itemid=2

The look of the base very much reminds me of the SW cockpit base, it's very similar.

I wonder what tool that is that guy uses in the very end to apply the T-molding. My guess is that it's heating it (and maybe does more ?)

Anyway, do we agree that the one guy doing the work looks a lot like a famous Nintendo hero ?

Great stuff I love it !

Woow! Great video, thanks  Kiss

This cabinet seems very complex to build... I mean there are so many operations... Everything seems to be 'hand made', one by one  shock
It doesn't really look like a factory, but more like a private workshop...
Do you know how many cockpits are built per day?

Great movie, Mario and Luigi doing SFR.  Cheesy

Astonishing how many parts are involved.

Indeed, you rarely realize that it takes so much work. Of course, SFR is a later generation and quite elaborate cab, but the basics have been about the same ever since Atari stopped producing the glass-fiber cabs I guess.)

I wonder how many they made in a day....

Did you notice that the cab got sprayed with the artwork already on the cab. Maybe some read it in my SW cockpit thread on BYOAC, but when I bought (and fist played) my SW cockpit I noticed something in the picture, like a bit of "cloudy" stuff. When I moved my head, I could see that it wasn't on the CRT itself but on the plexi bezel: there was black spray paint on it !
Could be the plexi already has been in there during painting...

Don't tell me that you cleaned the plexi bezel, the paint residu was an original feature.  Shocked
You better put it back on. If you need a hand, call me  lol

Wow, great video!
I think the T-mold tool is hammering it on... with compressed air..
