Not a lot of action here, but thought I'd post info on my project.
I have a nucore mostly running but it randomly crashes, and want to run the original WG CRT - but don't have an ArcadeVGA card. In order to be able to test the setup, I 'invented' an extremely cheap mounting solution with things at home. This is of course intended for testing, haven't tried any long term / table nudging with it, etc etc)
Lowes- 3 pack of 5 gallon paint sticks (item 1048715: $1)
Tools: Drill w/ bit, pencil, straight edge (I used a combination square)
Monitor: Dell E1913Sf
Cut the handle top off stir sticks, find center, drill top holes, insert monitor bolt, swing stick over to Mark bottom holes without monitor installed, drill holes.
Monitor will JUST sit in cutout for CRT. Put one side of stir sticks on and tighten slightly. This will want to push monitor to side and make it fall (ops tested) - once you get the other side on, the curved back will push toward each other and hold it in place nicely. Add black tape of your choosing if you wish to seal the gap for testing (I'm going to make a wooden frame just to have on hand myself but for now I used tape).
To get audio (**This is an IN A PINCH solution for testing - wires are just twisted, not tinned - ensure no wire fibers are touching other wires), I had a powered computer sub that takes bare wires to output to the front speakers. Tapped into the molex simply by sizing bare twisted speaker wires. Top row is +, bottom row is -. Red stripe -> Left; burgundy(?) Stripe -> Right; Black stripe -> Cabinet speaker (didn't use since I had a sub).
Now, I need to find an old and busted SWE1 translite so I can make a custom LED lighting panel that will allow specific color LEDs behind the translite to make the colors pop and make it look better than it does right now - which is quite poor imo. This will be a wood panel with light holes drilled - with a hinge just like the non florescent tube machines in order to access area behind it.
