what was the total price and how long did you spend on building it?
presumably, you'll stick a PC with MAME / emulators on it ?
or are you going to oldschool it with a JAMMA board ?

I have many searches on ebay for arcade crt's that are close to me and have 3 at the moment, this one has had quit a lot of work on it so should be good for a while.

I would like to build a cabinet myself but instead of using MDF like some flat-pack cabinets and having to paint the thing many times because MDF absorbs paint like a sponge I would rather use Melamine Faced Chipboard (MFC), but how do you cut that cleanly without specialist tools? I was wondering if I had the cabinet design in a CAD package if a workshop with a CNC machine could cut the shapes for me? I made an enquiry at a local workshop to do that but they couldn't give me a quote on the spot. 2800mm x 2077mm x 18mm sheets of black MFC are about £110+VAT at the moment from the prices I have seen.
Did you have to buy a special tool to cut the channel for the t-molding?
