Lots of cool stuff happening :-) I am getting 2 empty cabinets, and 2 games in the morning from John Butler. I ordered the control panel overlays for Stargate, and Robotron from www.fabfan.com. I found someone who had a Robotron control panel with joysticks! The control panel should be here next week. Look for Pictures. I am working on ordering replacement power cords from Bob Roberts (10 of them), so those should be here sometime next week as well (or the week after, as I need to send him a check). If you don't know who Bob Roberts is, you need to. He is one of the best resources you'll find on the net when it comes to parts and information. I will be putting up a "Photo Tutorial" on how to replace an old bad power cord this week. I am going to try doing a few more "Photo Tutorials" on things like Joystick replacement/repair, etc... If you have any ideas on what types of Tutorials I should put up on here, then let me know. If you would like to do a Photo Tutorial and have me put it up on here, then please send it my way. Otherwise they will go up when I get around to doing them. I am working on the background colors for the center column here so that I can have links to information and still have it readable. If you have a good suggestion for a color, let me know. Al Still has a lot of games left for sale so be sure to check the list!

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
