For a long while I've wanted my own gauntlet machine.
Since I first played it in 1986 most likely.

First to just be able to play it again.
But lately as part of a mame / arcade cabinet system so I could play many games in a more authentic idiom.

I've missed a couple chances to get one and now they seem to be getting rare.
Despite a crash in the arcade sales / rental market, prices on specific machines seem to be headed upwards.
Which makes zero sense.

So, I am considering building a cabinet and tricking it out for mame.
I like design number 4.
