all the cnc parts have arrived and building has started, and due to limited space mid way through building a flip up cnc bench top - so when not using the cnc I can tilt the cnc bench up out the way

lastly I got my full set of UNO displays arrived from Pinitech today and they look great - top design

I was going to go with Pinscore displays but loved the simplified design of a similar design but with all the parts fastened on to one board and then that board is fastened to the backboard and no need for the brackets that the displays normally slide into.

great for my project for space saving in the backbox but also great replacements for 80's SS games, and they come in amber or white with gel cover options and are low voltage with brightness adjustment.

got the bench tops on, handle, locking mech and a few other bits, setup the computer etc and then continued on with the cnc. I placed a whirlwind playfield on the cnc bed to check that it will cut a playfield - and then checked the router limits and max length that it will cut is 1295mm (close to 51 inches) in length - so will do a standard and wide body playfield as 90's Ballys are 46 inches long.
