Ok, it's official! I've hit 30! No, not my age, it's the number of cabinets I now have. I picked up a Donkey Kong Jr and Gorf today. Those two pushed me to the 30 game mark.

Both games are in pretty decent shape. The DK Jr being in the better shape of the two. The Gorf has casters on it, which makes it nice and easy to move around, but I'm still not sure I like them on the game. I guess only time will tell.

Since the stuff on Donkey Kong Jr will be easy to do, I've already started restoring it. I hope to have it done by the end of Sunday if all goes as planned. Does it ever? :-) Check out the restoration page for details.

As for the Slot Cutter Router bit. I've looked at it and it has a cut depth of 1/2". That is too deep for what I need, so I will be looking for one that is 1/4" deep or I'll have to rig something up (maybe a bigger bearing) so it only cuts 1/4" deep.

Restoration/Preservation has begun on my Kickman.
It's not a full restoration, but more of a preservation of what is there.  I like trying to keep things as original as possible.  With that in mind, I can take a few chances on this one as the damage is already done.  I'm mainly trying to prevent even more damage when I can.  Worse comes to worse, I'll do a full restore on it down the road.

Well, I decided to update RoboJuke with a new Motherboard, Processor and RAM. The old one was a Celeron 700 with 2MB of RAM running Windows XP. I upgraded to a Celeron N3150 (Quad Core 1.35Ghz), with 8GB of RAM running Windows 10.
After upgrading, I found out that the software I was using (Virtual Music Jukebox) wouldn't run on Windows 10. After looking for a replacement, I gave up and wrote my own Jukebox Software called "Simple JukeBox". It is avilable for FREE, you can read more about it here: http://forums.arcaderestoration.com/topics/17-Simple-JukeBox
