Arcade - Arcade Cabinets - Taitronics - Defender
Cabinet measurements provided by:
Has a cabinet been cut from drawings: NO
Cabinet is assembled with 15mm plywood (~5/8"). Multiple other dimensional lumber was also identified in the drawings.
Estimate Cabinet Accuracy = 80%
NOTE: I scored this cabinet low due to not including the drill holes for the custom brackets made by Taito. These would only be used if you had a donor cabinet (I usually drill these with the brackets as a reference guide). Paneling is very accurate. I have minimal concerns on joints and blocking.

What does Cabinet Accuracy mean?
Areas of variation:
Concerns are with placement of the blocking and slots for base assembly. I believe everything is correct, but the proof is in the assembly. I could not take apart this cabinet.

Files to Print
The below files are PDF documents of the plans that are printed to scale. These documents can be taken to your local print shop and printed on 32" wide media. The prints can then be applied to the wood and used as a template to cut the side panels of the cabinet. I have only included the side panels and any other panels that may be more difficult to cut.
