    It looks like they can, but can someone please confirm if screw ins will fit?

    Even if they don't I'm looking forward to the 22"

    @Karr80 I just tried some Seimitsu screw ins and they worked fine. I've never tried any Sanwa though.

    Thanks.
    I would be using the Seimitsu ones anyways.

    Are you able to put buttons on the sides?

    @Karr80

    Yes. All the pieces of the case will be sold individually so you can mix and match sides and get ones with or without button holes.

    @mR_CaESaR Here are a few examples of all white, all metal cases we've made:

    Is that what you had in mind?

    I just calculated shipping to Australia for someone else and it was about $85 but I'm not sure how much that varies across different parts of the country.

    Let me know if you have any other questions and thanks for the inquiry.

    Perfect. Thanks.

    I'm still weighing out my options.

    one factor you should consider (more or less depends on which region you are from) on a all metal panel...it can get very cold which is unconfortable.

  • AllfightsticksAllfightsticks Joined: Posts: 27
    @appomo

    Good point about the cold. With our case only the endoskeleton needs to be metal. The top button layout layer and the bottom access panel layer are available in acrylic instead of metal. It reduces the weight of the stick significantly for those who don't want a workout every time they lift it up and it should help address the temperature issue. Because all the pieces are sold individually you could even buy just the support body and sides and make your own top and bottom out of wood or any other material. The body takes care of the the joystick and pcb mounting as well as the Neutrik hole and option buttons which takes a lot of the work out of building your own case.

    How much is the weight of a 14 x 8 case with both top and bottom as plexis (sans steel panels)?
  • AllfightsticksAllfightsticks Joined: Posts: 27
    @jopamo

    It weighs about 5 1/2 pounds when you substitute the top and bottom with acrylic. That's approximately 3 pounds lighter than the all metal version.

    This the last post is bugged and it's appearing as unread on my screen.
    I just going to post here and see if it would stop.

    Continue on with your fine work everyone.

    Makes sense to me.

    Here's my custom fightstick case I orderd from AFS!

    I have a ps360+ inside but plan on adding paradise arcades brooks ps3/4 usb switcher for my dual mod. The joystick is a sanwa jlw and I must say I LOVE this joystick. Its very solid and feels solid as well. The tension in the joystick is just right. The throws are a little long but it does not bother me as that's what I'm use to in all the joysticks I've used growing up. The 30mm buttons are semitsu and the 24mm buttons are sanwa. I plan on changing the bat top out for paradises skinny bat top (blue) to try something different and valence out the color scheme on my fightstick.

    I love this case as it's just built super solid and the joystick and buttons all have the solid feel. This fightstick is like a tank. I'll update pics of the inside when I get the new prototype pcb from paradise!

    @Feargus001100 I believe this guy put one in the one we sold him:

    The acrylic window does slightly decreases the interior space of the case so he did express some concern about it possibly touching if the acrylic flexed while on his lap. He also got an all metal bottom just in case but I don't think he switched to it. I think he just got it as a backup plan.

    Here's a preview of my new custom fightstick from AFS. It will house a UFB and MC chuthulu with an imp v2.1 board. I have two custom joystick moutng plates. The main one will be for my Il joystick. The other mounting plate will fit any jlf style mounting. The flush top anodized black aluminium buttons will be Il with cherry microswitchs. The home, select, start, touch button, l3, r3 & turbo buttons are 16mm spst switches which are all mounted on the main top portion. I also have a pro cable from Jansons custom creations I'm very excited about this build, I will have almost all custom legacy cords made by myself for all my retro systems. I'll be doing all my own wiring as well. Can't wait to post final pics of the build when completed!

    @jopamo really love how clean the wiring is! Where did you buy the wiring to do this?
  • jopamojopamo Stuck in Silly-con Valley Joined: Posts: 1,422
    Thanks a lot! I bought everything but the quick disconnects at my local Fry’s. I got the quick disconnects from Paradise Arcade Shop.

    Good to know thanks. Just giving credit where its due and hope I can get my build as clean as yours.

    I’m hoping to top what I’ve got up above with the two AFS cases I bought for myself last year. I’ve been sitting on em for ages, just experimenting with different wiring techniques to make things as clean looking as possible. I’ve got a solder/crimp hybrid method down that I’m going to show around here soon. Hopefully it all turns out well.

    @jopamo awesome man I look forward to seeing the new work. Be sure to post some pics she you're done!

    @butteroj looks amazing! Love the color scheme of everything.

    @butteroj @jopamo just out of curiosity what size techflex are you guys using? 1/8 or 1/4?

    Beautiful man! Just curious what type of buttons you have in there ? The bottom looks different than anything even ever seen before. Really like how clean your build looks too. How do you manage to pull the ends out of the sides of the tech flex like that ? Really looks great though. You and @butteroj both have some very great looking cases.

    3/8" Techflex

    @ykd those buttons @jopamo used are gamerfingers

    I typically use 1/4" TechFlex with 3/8" 3:1 ShrinkFlex. But I like to use thin-ass gauge wire..like 26AWG.
    Most wire you'll source at stick retailers is thicker than that, so it will be harder to work with at 1/4."

    For that black stick above I used sleeving, shrink tubing, and 22AWG wire from Fry's.

    @jopamo thanks for the reply! Unfortunately there are no Fry's in Canadia but I should be able to get all of it at MRO electronics.
