Purchased a slot cutting 2.4mm routing bit from Brights. This is used with a router to cut slots for the T-Molding. You really need a 1/16 inch slot cutting bit but it seems they are impossible to find. The next closest size I could get my hands on was a 2.4mm bit. Close enough. With a router it makes quick work cutting the slots – the T-Molding will then fit perfectly.
I’ve also uploaded some close up shots of the Centipede arcade which I’m going to base my build on.
First thing was to measure out the side panels.
After double checking the measurements (The old saying still applies – measure twice, cut once) its time to start cutting. You will make you life a lot easier and save yourself a lot of trouble if you made use of clamps when you are working.
Finally finished cutting out both side panels:
Also cut the sides off the TV so it doesn’t make the width of the cabinet too wide.
