    Hey guys,

    just started an arcade cabinet project that will be for the most part done with a CNC machining station.
    We plan to sell cabinet kits too.

    We are located in Finland; shipping abroad with UPS etc. is not a problem for us, although the shipping cost for the possible buyer might be :twisted:

    Pics & finnish language infos with the most pics is available at Mame arcade-pelikabinetti - Page 3 - Huoltovalikko

    I have an english thread here: Fully CNC-machined cab from Finland

    Any feedback appreciated :)

    Wow, looks very nice! Have to agree with some of the comments over at Arcade Controls Forum though - why use an X-Arcade as the control panel? You could easily intergrate the control panel and it would look better (and be cheaper!) - but overall, lovely!

    Thanks guys!

    Slapaham, check post 13 by me on BYOAC.

    "Some of the changes will be:
    - change the controller area so that any controller can be used easily (or you can make your own controller in the controller base we supply with the kit)"

    So, the final version 2 of the cabinet will be modified regarding the control panel design.
