  1. I have this one in mostly complete condition. Just missing a few things, like sliding plexiglass and an era appropriate TV. Might also try fashioning a set of metal wire baskets and a tie down rod for the console. But first I'd like to work on the instruction cards.
  2. Ah, thank you. That's what I was thinking of. I'll certainly share the resulting front/back print-ready pages regardless of how I get there (scan or recreate).
  3. Does anyone here have the 22 instruction cards for the Atari POP kiosk? I only have the first card (index) with mine and was hoping I might get some help. Would anyone here be willing to scan these cards and share the resulting images? Otherwise, just photos of each page would also be appreciated. Since they're fairly simple in design, I can just recreate them if I have the text for each game. I also need to find a replacement for those two plastic loops that hold the cards. I feel like I've seen something incredibly similar in some office product before... Does anyone know what could be used as a suitable replacement? Any help would be greatly appreciated. (Close up image from Trade-N-Games' video. He has since sold the kiosk.)
  4. Sorry for the late response. I'd love to see it if you manage to find it.
  5. I don't have an exact weight measurement, but I can give you an estimate. Comparing it against a Donkey Kong cabinet (225 lbs), the Jaguar kiosk has a thinner body, less depth, and a smaller tube. The sheet metal base, plastic shell, and other internals don't add too much weight. I'd say it ought to be around 150 lbs. That said, the top half is simply attached to the base with a set of four bolts. It's easy to disassemble and can ultimately be moved by a single person.
  6. No, the plastic shell on top is one piece and holds the acrylic cover blocking the console. It is screwed into place with three screws on each side. If you remove the plastic shell, you end up with a plain wood cabinet featuring a slab of acrylic covering the monitor, the insides completely exposed, and speakers bolted to the sides. The shell isn't really optional.
  7. Swinging back in to provide an update on the restoration. I had some help from one of my father's co-workers (with access to industrial supplies and equipment) to fabricate a replacement for the missing diamond sheet metal base: I also managed to track down a working 120V 60Hz Atari SC1435 monitor. With that, the restoration is finally complete:
  8. This past weekend, I picked up this countertop Atari 5200 kiosk from an antique store near Richmond, VA. There doesn't seem to be any photos or information about it online, so I figured I'd check if anyone here remembers seeing one of these back in the day. Seems likely it would have been used in a department store.
  9. Right, I am in the US. The monitor needs to be a 60Hz model.
  10. I do have the original SC1435 monitor for it, but it came with a shattered tube neck. I may be able to get the monitor going again with a tube swap, but I'm not really sure what tubes could be compatible, nor if there are other problems with the monitor. The SC1435 is the Atari version of the Phillips CM8833 MK II, and there is a Commodore version as well in the 1084S D1, D2, and P1 models. Since the SC1435 is apparently quite rare, I'm hoping to find one of the Commodore monitors. Anyone of them should fit and run well in the kiosk though. If there are any other RGB compatible displays I could use, I'd be open to exploring those options as well. I have a PVM-14M2MDU, but unfortunately, that one is much too long to fit in the kiosk, and my PVM-1390 is too wide.
  11. Looking to buy either an Atari SC1435 or Commodore 1084S D1 / D2 / P1 60Hz monitor for my recently restored Atari Jaguar kiosk: https://imgur.com/gallery/T6r5pLw The monitor I received with it has a shattered tube neck, so the kiosk is unfortunately running blind at the moment. I'd be willing to pay $400 + shipping for one of those monitors in nice, working condition.
  12. Didn't expect to find this posted here. I'm glad the Atari faithful approve of the result. I'll be trying to track down a monitor for it now, so you'll see me panhandling in the Wanted forum, haha.
