They look great. When I restore my US TMNT cab I might have to get you to build a harness for me... Not looking forward to that :| (lights, 4 players (2 kick harnesses), 4 Coin slots etc..)
Send me a PM and we can try and work something out. However, with things like this, it makes it a little hard when I don't have the physical machine - if there are wiring schematics I can work off that.. but yeah, PM me.
Will let you know once I start on it. If you love making harnesses etc.. You should make some generic JAMMA ones. A lot of people are fed up with the cheap Chinese ones that seem to be the only ones available. Complete harnesses with good quality wire and connectors wouldn't go astray in the hobby. I see people complaining about it all of the time.

+1 for good quality JAMMA harnesses and connectors. We need them badly around here.

haha jamma harnesses are probably not something I would like to take on... they take a significant amount of time to make.

This!
Sometimes I don't think people understand the time, effort and cost required.
lol yeah I realised that real quick when I made my own bartop many many years ago (and that was CNC cut). Parts, time and effort cost well over the price people were asking to purchase for :)

Back on the jamma harness... sheesh... I can't imagine cutting, stripping, soldering and then covering with heat shrink 50+ something wires (and that's just one end), the other end will need certain connections to either put connectors on or other stuff.. I reckon it'd easily take me a solid 2 hours for something that what.. I could sell for 50 bux max? No one will want to pay more than that.. probably cost a fair bit in parts too.. I'm not a very business orientated person, but I personally don't think I would be able to sustain that for long :)

You are totally right about the time & effort to do it justice... and make it cost effective. I have re-wired 2 JAMMA connectors in the last month or so and its a fucking nightmare! haha. However, given the choice $25 for a cheap Chinese one or $50 for a top quality one... I know where my $50 hard earned would be going. :)

Problem being $50 doesn't come close to offsetting costs and labour.

yeah I know.. just annoying how shit the quality is of the ones available... best you can do is buy them and just replace the connector and power wires... still painful but probably less time consuming to make one from scratch.

It doesn't.

I assumed you were talking about extensions. My bad.

First post updated with a directory of services offered by members.

I polled this information from intro posts in this thread. If anyone wants to be added (or removed) in any of the sections, please let me know, it's helpful to know who is offering help locally.

Cheers.

I had to resort to ebay/aliexpress last time :(

I've started looking into TSOP to DIP adaptors as a workaround, so maybe a solution there for you?

Grabbing Cave Box Protectors for myself and 2 x JAMMA Adapters for @K0NAM1. Let me know by end of day if anyone wants to jump in on the postage.

Cheers.
