Want to to build your own mini MAME or Arcade Machine? You're in the right place.
2017 Inventory Update:
Let's talk about wood. The arcade shell wood (maple plywood) I have been using for the last four years has been unexpectedly discontinued by the MFG. The alternates I used for backups (this maple ply would go out of stock periodically ) have also been discontinued; I do not know what the deal is. I have found some underlaminate plywood with birch veneer on one side, and pine on the other. It is dimensionally the same- no changes in fit. This is a lower grade plywood and since one side is the 'good' side there are some caveats. No longer will there be two good sides to every part. From here on out, my recommendation will be to Prime and Paint your arcade cabinets, Stain will not be an option. I have not gotten to updating all arcade kit photos and descriptions to reflect this, but know this change superceeds any and all wood kits on this website.
Here's a build overview of the Porta Pi Arcade. This build is what you'll see when building the Porta Pi Arcade or my other Arcade Kits. Video done by This Does Not Compute, as Colin makes a great video.
Below is a completely unsolicited and unsponsored video made by Tony. Kit used was a JAMMArCADE 2P.
Much wow shop items here.
"WHOA! I dont know what a "Raspberry Pi" is or how it works. I just saw these tiny arcades and wound up here. I need to take things slow"
