    Talking Batman Cabinet - My first go at a cabinet

    I've had a Batman Pachinko for a while and finally spent a try and build a cabinet for it.

    I wasn't too worried about automatic ball lifters or anything. I just wanted a bigger hopper on top and a collection bucket underneath.

    In the end I wound up cutting out the yellow part of the Batman logo and mounting that on the door as well. It came together pretty good, but lots of ideas for another ... So if someone wants to sell me a Star Wars or Indiana Jones I can start another cabinet

    Great idea on the bat cutout, it really adds to the theme of the machine

    Few questions? Does the batman logo light up? It looks illuminated in one of the pictures.

    Is the machine tilted back at all in the cabinet? Again, hard to tell from the pictures.
    Would be fun to see some pictures inside the hopper or at the bottom tray - "in use".

    I should take some more pictures. It's all set up in the basement now. I screwed a power strip inside the cabinet so you can open the door and turn it on or off with the switch on it. And the other Batman logo on the door, I'll try to get some new pics up soon.

    The logo does not light up ... BUT that's one of the things I was thinking I would do if I ever build another. Use plexi glass, maybe an LED strip or whatever and make more of the cabinet glow.

    The machine isn't tilted back at all, it's pretty much just the way it would sit on a floor.

    For information if anyone else is thinking of it:
    Plywood - 1 4x8 sheet - $60
    MDF - Left over just used for the back of the cabinet so about 21x30
    Hinges - $16 - because I put that Slow-close thing on there ... I love those
    Screws, nails, that sort of thing ...
    Oh yeah, about a foot of central vac tubing used from upper hopper to machine and from machine into cabinet
    All in all built it one day, painted and cut out the Batman logo the next night and pretty much good to go.
