From the reckless abandon blog comes Brian Stephens' story of an how he used Big Blue Saw to help improve his video arcade cabinet.

The mounting plates on his new Ultimarc Mag-Stik joysticks didn't match the holes on his cabinet. So back in August Brian took advantage of Free Part Day to create a new set of custom mounting plates. The plates are made from 0.125 inch 6061 aluminum. Check out reckless abandon for more details.
