I'm considering building a cabinet but wondered what are the proper heights & angles?
I’m presuming the total height at the front of the cabinet is the most important so that it is comfortable to play. But does the back height and/or table angle and/or playfield angle vary much from manufacturer to manufacturer of real pinball machines?
What about if you build a mini-pin? Since the cabinet is shorter is it better to keep the heights correct & increase the cabinet angle? Or is it better to keep the angle correct & adjust the heights?
I found some nice looking ¾’ x 2’ x 4’ sanded plywood that would be good for the cabinet sides. And it would fit in my car so I could get it home. However 48” is a few inches shorter than the 51” to 53” side dimension I usually see, I guess the good thing is a filler panel at the top of the playfield might not be needed.
But would I use correct heights or a correct angle?
