Why build a arcade machine?

After using mame on the PC for many years and seeing some great pics of arcade cabinets that people have built, I’ve finally decided to jump in and build my own arcade cabinet.

This post on a local Forum actually sparked my interest again and after seeing some of the awesome pics decided it was time to build one!

The internet is full with tons of info and plans on how to build your own cabinet. Some sites contain a lot of useful information, others are poorly written, and there are also a lot of sites that no longer exist.

I’m going to take you through all the steps I’m going use to build my own cabinet.

For starters get your hands on this book. Its will give you a good insight into building an arcade cabinet.

From a few posts I’ve read on building your own arcade, people reckon its almost as rewarding as playing the games 🙂

So far I’ve spent a lot of time just reading up on the topic and looking through stacks of sites. I’ll add in all the links I’ve used.
