Turns out there is a significant amount of keyboard work that you have to do at the machine so that you can set up Mame Software, the front end, buttons, LEDs, etc..
I had no real good way to use the keyboard and mouse and control panel…
So I came up with this.. A clip-on keyboard shelf. Made out of all scrap I had laying around and $3.29 worth of ‘L’ brackets,
The metal ‘L’ brackets slide over the face of my CP box..
I cut the blocking to match the angle of the CP and carpeted the face of the supports that press against the CP front. While I was at it – I added a back edge to keep things from sliding off.
Much easier!! It will fit inside the cabinet for storage too once the keyboard works slows.. (if it ever slows..)
