    Hiring a hand model to display the prototype is an advertisement stroke of genius. Well done @hursit my friend, well done.

    PSA: MS293X, faulty chassis can break the tube

    Actually, I find suitable TV donor tubes that are a fitment replacement match for MS293x monitors quite readily, at least in the US. For every 27" curved donor I pick up, 4-of-10 will work for the MS293x. The rest get recycled. Maybe it is different in AU? Donor TV tubes for MS8/9 monitors are...

    PSA: MS293X, faulty chassis can break the tube

    Interestingly enough, I have some Blast City compatible Orion 29" tubes handy and have a spare MS2933 chassis to pair with it. Will get to pairing them together soon. Woot!

    PSA: MS293X, faulty chassis can break the tube

    So will swapping for a suitable donor tube that isn't poorly manufactured avoid this catastrophe?

    PSA: MS293X, faulty chassis can break the tube

    So it is the tube not the chassis that is causing the CRT to go to air?

    Connecting a 256 to a Blast city

    Powering a System 256 seems pretty straight forward. Just need the pinout and the proper connectors. All can be found here: https://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/Namco_system_256#Connectors As for JVS I/O, if you don't already have one, I would suggest the Sega I/O as it is the most readily...

    Possible to repro a back panel monitor access for a Blast City?

    No need for a brake. 4 clamps, 2 stiff straight edges, and 2 small sheet of wood should do it. Lay the sheet of metal where the bend(s) should be over the butt of the two sheets of wood. Then lay the sheet of metal where the joint is/where the bend should be. Clamp the straight edges to the...

    Possible to repro a back panel monitor access for a Blast City?

    Cardboard shall suffice in a temporary pinch to keep the cats out. You can also give this a whirl yourself. A metal nibbler (it's a drill bit attachment), a straight edge to guide the nibbler, a drill and bits for the holes, LB9A (color) spray paint, and a metal brake should be that is needed...

    Hired a hand model for the Youtube video. Highest production quality possible. Expect nothing less from @hursit.

    In this thread we tube and yoke swap monitors

    @Microfinne, there is a chance. Each chassis is going to handle things differently as it sends its signal down to the yoke. Who knows, might just not sync and you'll be unscathed. Might just blow up. If it blows up think about the cost to repair your chassis. Even if you have the skills to do it...

    Attempting to fix an eBay Purchased Killer Instinct Board

    Thanks @Hammy. I was lucky and was able to pick up these CPU's a while back on the cheap. It is the most I plan on investing into this pick-up. What do you think of this endoscope in place of a microscope?

    Attempting to fix an eBay Purchased Killer Instinct Board

    Found my spare CPU's for Killer Instinct!!! Checked the PCB SMD solder joints under magnification and see some solder bridges. Will have to clean that up before getting going. The package pitch is very small. I dunno if it makes sense to hand solder this. What do you guys think? Shall we go...

    In this thread we tube and yoke swap monitors

    The Katana just arrived yesterday from Amazon so that was somewhat accidental. Pretty good functional quality for a $70 Katana =). My recycle center has a drop off bin for E-waste. I tend to put TV donors back together for them. If anything, makes it easier to transport.

    Makes it easy to recycle though.

    In this thread we tube and yoke swap monitors

    So I tube swapped a Wells Gardner 13K4806. According to Ken Layton, it is the 13" version of the 19K4900 which is his favorite monitor of all time. He is a classics guy. This was my easiest swap yet due to the small size of the monitor. Here was my process: Matched relative size during pickup...

    Cast my ballot for 2 spinners. Also, would go for a Astro Style panel. Willing to test this out on a MAME rig when the time comes as well.

    Did the Pepsi Challenge Ever Go down?

    I still have to put a MAME rig together for you. Hoping a parts list becomes available for JAMMAizer. When it does, will send one your way my friend. Oh yeah, totally. There is the infamous case of Billy Mitchell's Donkey Kong records! A lot of our arcade hobbyist friends on the forum ask me...

    Did the Pepsi Challenge Ever Go down?

    LoLoL! Keep me posted if it ever goes down again and videograph it well please. Not picking on our good friend @jassin000, just really curious. Should run 3-to-5 rounds to make it less than a 50/50 proposition. And run a fan in both cabs in case he is listening for case fans. Should make for a...
