Here we are, 3 months later! I hope this information has been useful to you. I expect this month to be a little slower than the rest due to the Holidays, if you want to send me presents feel free to A Metrocross PCB under the tree would look great! Ok, I am going to be converting my Side Arms back into Dig Dug since the cabinet is in pretty good shape and has the side art in tact. This decision is also because I picked up a Crystal Castles cabinet that has been painted COMPLETELY black. Since Crystal Castles has such elaborate art work, I figured this one would be better off as a JAMMA cabinet. I'm sure I can find a dedicated Crystal Castles for a descent price when the time comes. After Christmas, I'll probably be buying a lot of power tools (ones that I didn't get for Christmas ) and I'll let you know what I got and what they will be used for. I am working on another Video Tutorial on how to restore a Control Panel (in this case its my Robotron Control Panel). This may not get done until after Christmas as it may require the use of some power tools which I currently do not own. I have added a new tip and updated the Checking Florescent Lights tip. November's news has been archived and can be found on the lower left of this page. I would also like to thank all those who have signed my guest book!

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
