Nice bit of British arcade history there. Not sure I've ever seen a JPM made video cab before now I think about it.

This has been listed a few times now.

Can anyone identify the monitor chassis? The internals on that machine are nothing like I've ever seen before.

We had one in our local chippy with ASO in it, then they swapped it for a bandit...nice little cabs, go well with the old fruities, same rough shape and laminate used Smile dont think its gonna sell for more than the opening bid though...

Plus it will be a pain to change CP so other than Pac/MsPac...

Look like an old TV chassis, it has RF modulators

I had a chassis like that a few years back,I got in a pile of stuff from an old retired op,I think I ended up giving it to TB2000 as it was no use to me,im pretty sure he said it was a repurposed tv chassis with certain parts missing

I think a few of those old UK cabs had chassis like that, my Picman cab has something very similar in it.

These JPM video cabs have got to be one of the rarest cabs to see now as far as 'generic' cabs go!

It's almost 99.9% a converted TV chassis, probably something along the lines of a Ferguson TX type chassis. I've seen this in a few cabs before.

Yes, it's a Ferguson TX9. Early type with thyristor power supply. Horrible things. Used to blow the fuse violently for no apparent reason.

The later type used a chopper supply. Much more refined and reliable.
