Hey I just ordered a Sanwa (JLF-TP-8T) from lizardlick, what is the difference between this stick and the one on the HRAP2. I noticed that it says the HRAP2 has a Sanwa (JLF-TP-8Y-SK)?????

Anyone know where I can purchase a grey replacement ball-top for a Sanwa JLF-TP-8Y-SK, similar to the one pictured below? I've been looking around and hit just about every color of the rainbow... but no greys.
Also, what model Seimitsu button should I look for when MODing an HRAP3 (including the start/select buttons)? Should I use screw-ins or snap-ins?

I noticed that an earlier picture in this thread showed a metal bracket around the buttons, and I was wondering if that's neccesary, or if I could just make hole in the wood to put the buttons through.
Also, can I just make a hole to fit the joystick through (planning on using the JLF) and if so, how large should the hole be?
And finally, for Sanwa parts, how thick should the wood I'll be working with be? Thank you!

I am planning on swapping the stick from my T5 hori stick, but there's been something that's really bugging me. I got a 5-pin connector with my LS-35-02 and I know it could work with a JLF, what are the color codes for the wires? I have seen the seimitsu PCB pic on the first page and was wondering if that is the correct color code with the JLF as well.

The GT-O is for the JLW... is there no way to get a circular gate on the JLF?
I'm a HAPP man myself, but I'm building a stick and want to keep the size to a minimum... but HAPP parts are so freakin long/big. I'm thinking of going with Sanwa even though I don't like the buttons, but if I can't get a circular gate I'll just have to bite the size bullet and stick with HAPP.

You won't be able to order straight from Sanwa or Seimitsu with such a small order. I've done orders myself that were much larger than yours and unless you're going to approach them as a distributor, they won't ship to you since they don't take international orders.

Would you be able to give me any advice on how to go about contacting Sanwa, and setting myself up as a distributor? I have several friends fluent in Japanese so communication will not be a problem.
Thanks again for your help on this man.

So, correct me if I'm wrong. In order to "correctly" mount a jlf onto a NON RECESSED surface, such as a straight acrylic case, the material would have to be no thicker than 1/4 inch?

Quick question: I was looking into picking up a couple of 30mm button plugs, but noticed that Sanwa's were a little bit raised/convex for my tastes. Are Seimitsu button plugs flatter/more flush with the control panel, or are they the same?

I remember reading somewhere that it was possible to change the microswitch from a Seimitsu skeleton button for a Sanwa one (ref SW68?), can someone confirm that?
Paik4Life, post: 1252927 wrote:
Nope. Sorry. Well, almost anything is possible with enough modding, but to answer your question, it's basically no.
30mm and 24mm...hence the sizes that are given. This information was also included in the first posts that I wrote under button installation. Please read before asking questions.

I asked that cause i went to the hardware store but all i see is stuff like 1 1/8, 1 1/4 and a bunch of other sizes and i dont know which one is the right one

Another stupid question here.
Say I wanted to make a pad for PS2, would a 4-way or an 8-way stick be better for this?
urth, post: 1252944 wrote:
huh? be more specific. What do you want to do? I assume when you say "pad", you mean an arcade stick for ps2?

The standard mounting height for Japanese joysticks is to have 23-24mm of shaft above the control panel to the bottom of the balltop.

Its written in the first post that the sanwa buttons 30mm and 24mm holes based on their number, but I was wondering how well they fit into a 1-3/16" and 15/16" hole. Both of those are close to the metric sizes, only off by 0.1 or so which makes me think that they would work pretty well, but it would be nice to know for sure before I go out an buy the drill bits from somewhere.
