Re: Anyone ever take apart a cabinet to move it?

Thanks for the ideas. :) Yeah, i had pretty much decided to try paying a contractor to remove the door frame ... It's a metal fire/security door, and unfortunately, i'm pretty sure it's going to get wrecked when it comes off ... so i'll have to buy a new one. I'm counting on at least another 1/2 inc...

Re: Anyone ever take apart a cabinet to move it?

Can't do that either. It's not my house ... It's the landlord's ... I don't think he's too keen on spending money to get a wider door put in just to satisfy my need to get an arcade machine into my apartment. It's also an annoying situation because the door frame is built on an angle... So in actual...

Re: Anyone ever take apart a cabinet to move it?

Not moving any time soon. :( I thought that there would be some people who have done this (taken apart cabinets and reassembled them) successfully ... to be honest I'm surprised that it doesn't happen more often... But everything I'm learning is that taking apart the cab will likely damage it beyond...

Re: Anyone ever take apart a cabinet to move it?

Yeah, but my game is Asteroids Deluxe ... and as you may know, it's all about the cabinet. :)

I would do a cabaret maybe for Battlezone ... or a regular Asteroids ... but not for deluxe. There'd be no point ... I could just play it on Mame :P

Re: Anyone ever take apart a cabinet to move it?

We had a stove that had to come in once ... they had to disassemble it into pieces to get it in ... and the base is EXACTLY 25 inches wide. When it came to getting rid of the old one, they had to bend and mangle the sh*t out of it to get it out. It looked like a pile of scrap metal by the time they ...

Anyone ever take apart a cabinet to move it?

Hi there ... Forgive my noobishness ... I am less than a week old into this hobby. My first purchase is an Asteroids Deluxe in very good condition. :D However, i ran into a problem when I got it home. I thought it was 25 inches wide ... it's actually 25 and 1/4 inches wide ... and our apartment (whi...

WTB Asteroids Deluxe Upright

I'm looking for an Upright Asteroids Deluxe Cabinet arcade machine ... Hopefully in working order. Apparently they made a lot of these, but I'm having a hard time finding one for sale in Canada.
