The Panel is a 4mm thick Stainless Steel sheet that was in the metal scrap bin at work ready to be chucked. The plywood box underneath the panel is 17mm Form-ply that was left over from a previous project. The bottom is a 2mm sheet of Zinclume. The products I used aren't exactly cheap, but luckily enough I didn't pay a cent for the panel or base. Yet it still was not a cheap project, however a rewarding one that was worth it in my opinion. Besides, what cost me the most money was the parts and tools to create it.
All SANWA parts. Joystick sports an 8-way restrictor, 30mm push-in Buttons. Pre-wired Mayflash PS3/PC arcade controller. PLUG and PLAY!
I wanted 2 arcade sticks that work for PS3 and PC. The design; I wanted it to look like nothing anyone has done before. I did not want it to look like a plumb/leveled box of buttons with a pretty picture on the top. It had to be as slim as possible and on a slant, but at the same time robust, sturdy and yet have a touch of weight to it. I think I have achieved that.
Enjoy and thanx for looking...
