    Still researching my new cab build and somewhere I saw a picture of a cab that had the TV on a strut so it just easily lifts up rather than all the hassle of taking it out that I had on my old cab.

    I now can’t find any info on this & wondered if anyone else has done this & if so do you have any plans I could take a look at?

    I don’t have plans, but in the first cab I built for my father-in-law I put the playfield on a hinge so you could lift it up to work on it without the need to remove it every time.  I’ll see if I can find some pics or video if you’re interested.

    I just came across this post and he used brackets and rods to create a hinge system for his.

    Other than the first couple of months when I was finalizing my setup, I have never taken my tv out.  I have the coin door access in the front and I chose to leave the back wide open for ventilation and ease of access.  To me pulling off the glass and moving the tv for something I can stretch a little farther from the back is an unnecessary risk

    the only reason real pins do it is because they have maintenance on the items inside.  If the tv dies are you gonna fix it or replace it.  And for the computer, I can disconnect and pull mine out the back.  If I did it over I would rather have the internals on a sliding tray that came out the back

    I think Tom makes some really good points to consider and it comes down to user preference and how you’ve setup your pinball internally.   Always great to get others feedback so you can make the best choice for your situation.  Can’t wait to see your final setup.
