MacMini Arcade machine mount
by VengTheVader, published
It features an integrated power switch trigger with printable pushswitch which can be mounted onto the side of a cabinet to reset or power on/off the mac mini via a length of piano wire.
The vertical mounts are in theory adjustable in height (using m4 bolts) by a small amount to give more clearance should you need to add padding under the mac mini or a top plate.

Nice cab! I'm just finishing an upright and was planning to build a cocktail next. Plus, and I have an older Mini collecting dust so this will come in very useful.
I especially like your power switch. I'm currently using the standard button wired to motherboard pins method, but this is a much more elegant solution.

Vaguely remember I used m4 10mm bolts to secure the vertical parts, and may have been m3 16 or 20mm for the trigger, which was just screwed in far enough to secure without needing a nut. In theory a self tapping screw would work here also. Base parts are simply secured to the floor of an arcade machine or box with some m4 wood screws.
Bend a piece of piano wire to required length and drill a hole in the box side for the pushbutton. The pushbutton features a slide in part to secure it in place without the need for a screw thread (so long as your box is roughly the same thickness as a standard arcade box) piano wire simple attaches like a servo wire on rc plane between the pushbutton and trigger.
I theory should be usable for mounting a macmini in a box for a server box also.
