Dragons Lair / Space Ace marquee brackets.
« on: May 25, 2017, 01:23:34 PM »
Greetings, long time lurker first time poster. I started working on a pair of Dragon's Lair cabinets this year that were converted (one to World Series Baseball, the other to Rygar). One of the cabs had the marquee cut flat so I decided to fabricate some pieces. I was encouraged to make some extras due to the positive response to my KLOV thread. I figured I'd post the progress over here as well. I had the originals copied into solid works and laser cut from steel. Although the bottom bracket was original aluminum I decided to use 20 gauge steel for both pieces. Then they went over to the press brake to match the angle of the original. Finally flat black powder coating was applied. I tossed a set up eBay if there is any interest.
