    Blast City voltage pot

    Just to clarify the ones in that catalog appear to be newer models but you could get a trim pot from anywhere as long as it's:- side adjustment 1k through hole pin spacing 2.5mm*2.5mm and centre pin at the front

    Blast City voltage pot

    The original trimmer pot is made by "Tocos", the markings on the back (of mine at least) are "102 6X 82", the 102 corresponds to a 1k pot. The pin spacing is 2.5mm by 2.5mm with the single pin at the front. Look here for example...

    Punch Mania worn punch pad friction/clutch mechanism

    Ok so dropped by an electroplating place today and the guy reckoned the coating was black zinc. After dipping it in some hydrochloric acid the coating came straight off Upon closer inspection though there does appear to be some wear on the face itself. I'm not entirely sure if it's by design...

    Namco Noir Bulb replacement

    Just a couple of other things to consider:- colour temp, cool/natural/warm white (personally I find cool/bright white too harsh and bleeds through too much, warm is too 'yellow') clear or 'milky tube' (I prefer milky as helps to give more uniform light output be sure to shop around there is...

    Punch Mania worn punch pad friction/clutch mechanism

    Have you got a spare set of pads lined up? I haven't even bothered looking for replacements I just assumed they are all going to be flogged out. I was considering going to an auto trimmers or some such and seeing if it was possible to have a leather skin/cover made like on a proper focus pad...

    Konami 573 audio 'noise' once game has booted/initialised

    Yeah I've got a multimeter but can you elaborate on what you mean by any bleed? I'm no expert when it comes to audio analysis and the like so apologies if any of this additional data is useless. I powered up the 573 on my bench and then fed the audio out of the board into my pc microphone input...

    Crisis Zone + 246 games IR led replacement tests - Work in progress

    Tekken 7 R2 - Update

    I missed this, that is actually the error code i'm getting on mine (https://www.arcade-projects.com/threads/es3-tekken-7-fr-round-2-security-dongle-error.20657/) I guess that solves that mystery

    Punch Mania worn punch pad friction/clutch mechanism

    haha I was the same, as soon as I saw this for sale I jumped on it even if it was $$$$$ you rarely see these out in the wild. Yeah the red focus pads almost feel hollow if you squeeze them as the core has been wrecked through 2 decades of abuse.

    Punch Mania worn punch pad friction/clutch mechanism

    Ok brains trust, looking for any ideas/feedback as how to best restore the friction mechanism for the punch pads. I intend to knock up a project thread documenting this cab when i'm all done (currently trying some stuff out with other motors/gearboxes) but apart from the audible noise from the...

    Konami 573 audio 'noise' once game has booted/initialised

    Hi all, Got a Konami 573 in a punch mania cab which has an audible hiss/noise once the game is fully booted to the intro screen, during all the initialising etc speakers are silent as if the audio output is disabled during this time. You can go into the test menu and it's silent until you...

    Repair log: Sony PVM 20M4

    I also just posted in that thread regarding my M4U (US variant). Was trying to clarify if the US model can take a 240V input since the schematic and parts listing is the same for all models even though the service manual description at the start says 120VAC only for the M4U. Someone also just...

    Unico phoenix monitors - Opinions?

    They do have some samples but they are just demo'd on a bench etc, they did mention on facebook about sending some out to some arcade people for review but haven't seen anything yet. Check here: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rObDnZsrPfQ&ab_channel=neocvera that video is from July...

    Unico phoenix monitors - Opinions?

    The problem is (and this is only my take) the marketing has been terrible. As mentioned throughout this thread; a video of a open frame LCD sat on a bench isn't very inspiring no matter how good you tell someone it is and outside of this thread (for me at least) I had no idea these were even in...

    Unico phoenix monitors - Opinions?

    I dunno, looks like they're still going for it, a reply from Unico an hour ago in resposne to: "is there an update for the 26” monitor? are you closer to your goal?" "Getting closer about 70% but not there We have had to refund some this week so number could be off by as much as 10%" Still...

    Time Crisis 4 Solenoid replacement

    Yeah the entire solenoid is different as well, the way the slide mounts. Rather than screwing to the underside and proceeding round to the rear the early version is threaded at the front. You could possibly fettle the housing on older models and modify to fit but as I mentioned earlier that's...

    Time Crisis 4 Solenoid replacement

    Yeah of course hence the needs more research comment but since you mention it you could actually use something with higher resistance and possibly lower depending on how many amps your PSU can provide (again all in the research part). I think the main issue is going to be the duty cycle of the...
