I got off my ass and assembled one of my Stargate cabinets.

See the picture for a description of the work that needs to be done yet. I was tired of having all the parts just lying around and me not being able to play the game. Since I have two cabinets, I decided to put everything in one until I could do the painting on the other. When its ready, I will then move all the parts to the newly painted cabinet and have a fully restored game.

The game plays good, however, I need the 3 push buttons that attach to the coin door. If anyone has one for sale, please let me know. I could actually use 3 or 4 of them.

The wiring harness is done!!!.

Here it is assembled.

There is NO side art on it, it needs to be repainted in the front, and back. I don't have a upper back door for it, the top wood needs to be replaced, and it needs new trim! Other than those minor things, its playable! The first picture is what it is currently, the second picture is what it was when I got it.

Just a minor difference. Once it is DONE DONE, then I will have a page with Large Side by Side Photos for you to view.

I went to go get the Side Art plotted for a test to see how close I am before committing to stencils.

I know the left side is almost identical, but the right side is off, I just need to figure out by how much and make the necessary adjustments. It turns out that most places that can plot this size, don't read the drawing files, but rather want a Plot File. So when I get to work on Monday I can create a Plot File and then drop it off to have it plotted. I finished the Wiring harness with only two mistakes!

I got the Up and Down backwards and I didn't wire the +12 to the Sound board. Without +12, you don't get any sound. Once I fixed those, I was rocking! I played it for a while and it kicked my ass BAD!

Guess I'm just going to have to play it A LOT more once its done to show it who's the boss! I brought it back into this world, I can take it back out! I am not using the original power supply, instead I have a Switcher in there and I use Bob Roberts Adapter. It may not be 100% authentic, but this should prove to be more reliable which is more important to me. The only thing that is left now, is to paint it and re-assemble it!

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I'm getting excited! Found out today that the volume POT for Stargate is 5K. I will need to pick one up from Radio Shack in the morning. The Stargate Marquee and Front Glass should be here by the end of the week!

Keep checking back. Since I now have two Stargate cabs I will be able to sand and paint one and keep the art from the original for comparison. I will take Side by Side shots when that happens.
