will send you the lock
No need KC buddy, I've got 5 brandnew ones coming from Taito... Save it for any other Vewlix cabs you may have coming in the future.
The 1153 is the official lock for all Vewlix cabs from Taito.
The real issue with this cab hasn't been the locks, it's the control panel surround...
The factory spot welds on the top of the surround have all been broken.
Causing it to flop independently from the locking mechanism in both directions (into the panel and away from the panel).
Someone (I suspect the original arcade operator because they are retarded) tried to use JB weld to repair this...
I could tell from the black compound I had to scrape off (it took hours to do this) from the two layers of metal.
I properly repaired it by making shims, mounting them to the screw posts on the underside of the surround.
Applying pressure from the back and holding the two pieces of stainless together.
I must say you are lucky I'm the person who purchased this cab, most people wouldn't know how to fix this correctly (case in point the original repair with JB weld)...
And would have DEMANDED a refund.
do not order the lock you diamond have it
Cab was missing the control panel lock completely, and as suspected the coin door lock had been changed (this is common practice for arcade operators).
Basically I need two 1153 locks, and I ordered a complete set (5) so no harm whatsoever... I'd much rather be prepared!
I got you Jassin here is the dilemma I have I don't want to put an official panel on a non vrwlix cabinet feels like a waste. Also I think those weird measurements are what I need. Lastly I'm having a panel fabricated locally but it cost 175 with no art or anything its just stainless steel with holes they don't even have a press to put the screw terminals in. I don't know how I'm going to cover up the bolts on the other side so it holds the panel in. I feel like it would be easier if I just got a second cab and linked them lol.
Hey Jassin do you still have Tha 2player cp from shadaloo ill buy it ?
Sorry, I let this go for 75$ shipped about two or three months ago.
