Here are some more Dino King panels I've done for a few members recently.

The panels are £40 each + postage at cost.

I can do any variation you like concerning sticks and button placements. All custom work is drawn up on cad, shown to the customer and then made to order on my cnc mill.

The material is a thin aluminium sandwiched plastic sheet used for signage.  Thus stuff is very stiff, lightweight and easy to cut.  I get a lot of this material from a company near to my work.  The white face is pretty good (and I think I have some black too), but sometimes has small imperfections and production marks.  You *can* use them as is, but I'd recommend getting a snazzy overlay for them from 'our' Olly Muddymusic https://www.arcadeartshop.com/

Is there a specific brand of button or joystick that fits the drilled holes?

The holes are 30mm as standard, so Sanwa & Seimitsu will fit, as will standard microswitch buttons - but if you wanted leaf switch buttons, I could do those sizes too.

The middle panel in the picture is a custom 2 player setup done with all 24mm buttons and 2x 18mm button holes for smaller start buttons.

Nice work as always fella! I hope to be wiring up the 2nd of my 2 player panels this weekend Wink
(Using proper connectors so they are hot-swappable easily)

Here ya go folks... one that was made earlier....




I'm a little raised in the general eyebrow area about the 2P12B panel using 24mm buttons there. That was my original plan waaaay back but others advised me against it.
It's maybe ok for little kiddies but I'm pretty sure adult sausage fingers will end up with knuckles smashing against the dino plastic side supports. Happy to be proven wrong on that tho Big smile

Some great looking panels. Already ordered one and hope to get one or two more if I can copy Flinnster's hot swap idea

I ordered the 2l 12b panel and it's certainly for the small youngsters in the family that will be disappointed when the Dino king credits run out. Don't think a 2nd player would fit next to my fat frame unfortunately.

Not sure the joystick placement is much closer to the side, just shrunk down the button sizes to squeeze more in.

Hot-swapping is definitely the way to go! So nice just to be able to change the panels as and when needed. I only have one cab left to deal with now - all the others have looms wired to the 21-way JST connector behind the control panel for both player controls now.

I'd be interested to see how the 12 button variant goes for sure. Here was my original plan, which also used 24mm buttons. The button spacing was pretty bad though... moved on a bit since then! Wink

Yeh I'm really inspired with the wiring you've done for the hot swapping of control panels. Gives the cab a great deal of versatility.

You were certainly experimenting with those panel plans, that's why I decided to go with even smaller 18mm start buttons.

I was originally thinking of a 2l 6b panel with 24mm buttons but thought if you can get 3 button wide on each side there should be enough height for a second row.

I set Vic the challenge to fit it all on and I'm impressed with what he's delivered.

Yeah, if you use snap in buttons rather than screw-in ones I think you can fit them closer together overall. Just the top button surround to worry about in this case ;)

Very true it is all quite a Squeeze and fun to try new ideas. Will get some Sanwa snap ins, hopefully that will do it.

You've converted far more than most so I appreciate the advice and chance to learn from your restoration threads. That's one of the great things I've found with this sight, lots of people interested in the same hobby willing to help each other, whether experienced or just starting to learn like me.

Yep any help you need just ask Smile 3ish down here, 1ish still in progress Embarrassed

I wasn't the first to do the conversions that's for sure. I learnt on here from FrancoB, Paulie and others, and from Tony's blog too! Still plenty of things I don't know (ruddy monitors mainly!).

Thanks mate much appreciated . That's a decent number of Dino cabs, will look great all lined up

I have read through a couple of the conversion threads and will search out a few of the others and read again as well before attempting anything. It's interesting to see the different ways people have approached it and the many themes that have been done.

There's always more to learn. I've noticed a few guides on monitors but that's a bit too far for me as yet. Not making any changes on mine until the credits run out, just plenty of reading for now.

I'm going to do some overlays for these using Vic's plans so they be fully cut with button holes etc. I'm making up a design now that matches the original orange artwork so should be good for anyone who wants to leave the rest of the cab artwork as it is, but will also be easy to make up custom designs too in any of the button configurations.
