  1. Next update I have decided to replace the tower 900 floor with acrylic, as I need space to have a drain system. So I am here now, need some harware, and I also added a video on the products that will be used at the link below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XN6J3WD3G0E
  2. So after chopping the bottom few inches of the Tower 900 off we come up with this. Serves two purposes, slightly shortens the unit, and allows me to use the cabinet lower structure as part of the actual case itself. Still not finished with the inside of the cabinet a few more things yet to reveal.
  3. Next Update: So here is the floor, recognize it? Then I modded the W4 cpu block: Of course we have to integrate these cool fans whereever we can! Did you really think i could leave the tower 900 go without cutting it up? Wait til you see whats next! a preview:
  4. May the 4th be with you!
  5. So in trying something new, I come up with this: Couple different colors of paint, painted on wood, and the result was exactly what I was looking for. So I prep the tower 900 cabinet: This is the paint I am using, covered great: All taped up so I don't get paint where it isn't wanted: The result is a nice sky blue side wall: Before I reveal what I am doing here, anyone have any guesses?
  6. Next video log, forgive me for being exhausted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDoDB-fynDU
  7. Thanks!! Yeah who doesn't want an arcade machine in their house??? In my case this may end up in my garage!
  8. It's actually gonna be custom
  9. Some more updates for you guys! First I have created the top portion of the cabinet, had to match the angles appropriately. I used my clamps to hold everything together while I drilled holes for screws and countersunk them into the cabinet to hide everything. Next I marked and drilled holes for the speakers to show through. Here you can see some of the edges of the wood rounded, and also the speakers, and tower 900. Here we see the mini NES Classic that will be integrated. And finally we have the monitor mounted inside the cabinet. Will have more updates soon!
  10. Stay tuned for case integration. It will be two player arcade. Stay tuned for controller layout Thanks! YESSIR! Yeah definitely lol Thanks!
  11. So after some hype on social media, I decided to release my initial idea for this project. I am calling it "the Arcade" !!! First I cut some wood, and will have a video on youtube showing that process that I will share here soon. Next step was to begin dry fit assembly so I can take some more measurements. First we create the base, that has 4 casters, two are locking to hold the unit in place. This is very sturdy, each caster can hold 250lbs. I even tested the unit by standing on it like a skateboard. So I started with my wood dowel bit and dowels that will eventually hold everything together. Then we have our holes to insert the dowels. and more dowels I want the overall look to be clean, but sturdy, so the dowels and a few screws will accomplish this. Holes line up. and voila, we have the base cabinet. Next I used this countersink bit to hide the screw heads Then I freehand drew the top cutout. After I was happy with the shape I took careful measurements, and made the lines straight. Then I cut one side, and laid it upside down to trace to cut the other side so they were exact. I have the top piece resting for now, just held on by clamps so I could take some more measurements and a few photos! That is all for now, will have more soon!
