That's not a recip saw son, it's a multi tool. AEG is very upset now


sir ... where did you found the label stickers ? it's any play to buy those ?

Very cool custom design. But it seems like alot of work/cost you could of avoided just getting an AC Infinity AIRPLATE cabinet fan kit. Their designed specifically for cabinet cooling so their LCD control adjusts the fans cooling depending on how hot it is. Looks more professional and probably costs the same as buying all these parts in your set up.


Careful with that sunlight on your consoles.


I'm one for older games consoles, I actually very like retro games but don't call the newer consoles junky that just hurts man 😂

Great job =D I do the same thing with labels on power supplies and video cables. Makes it much easier!


Nicely done, the fans are a pretty "cool" idea 😌. It made me smile as I use literally all of your kit; from the labels, to the component switcher, cheap upscaler & modded full console collections (everdrive, gdemu etc). I zip tie all of my cables behind my unit to the shortest manageable length possible but they still look a bit messy when you have 10 consoles hooked up at once lol. My OCD I guess ha.

Oh I've started to notice some interference with my component switcher (faint grainy speckles on screen) when using the PS2,Wii,OG Xbox have you ever noticed that with yours? Was wondering if what you said about the scart switcher interference could be happening with my component switcher? All 3 are always hooked up to it

Looks really nice and tidy now:) Great idea with the cooling fans, Speaking of cooling its freezing here in the u.k and that sun is making me jealous!


I have the problem you're talking about, the widescreen on the CRT with my megadrive 1 but I have no setting on the TV to have it fullscreen

It doesn't do it with the megadrive 2 nor the snes or any other rgb console I have which is weird.


they stopped production on the xrgb mini without announcing a followup, so it might be worth getting one sooner rather than later with price hikes the usual trend with things in limited supply. But then again micomsoft just could be keeping quite the sell off the older product before talking about a new one.

That's such a cool setup! I love what you did with the fans! Watching your videos makes me want to learn about electronics ( ´ ▽ ` )b

Can you do a video more about telivision and retro video game. You did a good cable video. Itried pluggin my PS2 into my HDTV with component cables, thinking the cables were enough, but it still lagged :S

Is CRT the only way? If so, is SCART or component better for CRT?

Keep up the great videos!
