You could simply switch to LS-32 with flat mounting plates.

Tell me more please. I have a load of mounting plates kicking around but none that would be suitable to fit on the mounting “pegs”.

Edit, cheers Jughead, shipping is a bit of a killer there.

Vewlix CP joystick brackets.

Does anyone know if there’s anywhere other than Taito where you can get joystick mounts for original Vewlix control panels?

Re: Repairs to metal and powder coating. (Vewlix CP)

Cheers, I thought that might be the case. Is there a specific type of paint that would be extra durable for specific use on metal? Would you lacquer yours? I’m ok for a panel ta. Have managed to source an original C panel to complete the cab. Thank you though. Interested to see what you’re going to ...

Repairs to metal and powder coating. (Vewlix CP)

Received a Vewlix C recently from John’s amazing container haul and I’m in the process of giving it a bit of TLC. The control panel had signs of wear and a respray which I could scratch off with my finger nail. So I have set about sanding it down to see what the craic is with a potential view to may...

Vewlix 100Y Insert Coin decal sizing.

I need a replacement 100Y decal for a Vewlix, could someone help me out and measure theirs please?

The total space beside the coin entry is about 90mm x 90mm so I’m guessing less than that.

Thanks!

Vewlix Questions (Repro CPOs)

Can anyone tell me whether a Vewlix can be broken down into various smaller parts for transportation/storage? I can see that the main control panel comes off but I haven't seen many broken down any further. Also, can the monitors be swapped around easily enough? (If I wanted to upgrade to a 1080p pa...

Re: Konami Windy II Beeping Sound / No Video

That's exactly the same noise that my Windy 2 monitor made. Unfortunately grant couldn't get to the bottom of what the issue was (he replaced a specific component on the chassis but it kept getting fried, I cant remember what the part was though) and I ended up having to replace the whole lot (chass...

Re: Astro/New Astro City CP quirk.

I have given it a go and it looks better. The monitor surround definitely sticks out a bit from the cabinet back on the left. Not that this looks bad or anything. Was just a general observation from seeing a lot of recent Astro refurbs here and there. Just wondered if it was something about the Astr...

Astro/New Astro City CP quirk.

This isn’t a question that needs a fix, more an observation. Does anyone know why or have a theory why a lot of Astros aren’t flush on the left hand side of the CP where the CP meets the monitor surround? I have two Astros and they’re both the same. Is it a flaw in the materials they used, some kind...

Re: A tool for every job

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good quality drill bit set? I have some bolts on a NAC that need drilling out unfortunately and the bits I have are struggling to do the job.
