I just got some Fanta's in the mail.
Despite what I thought I read about Happ and Korean joysticks being interchangeable, it doesn't seem that way. The Fanta joysticks I got (Myoungshin) all have holes that are in a square of dimension 5cm x7.25cm. The Happ P360 I'm looking at has a dimension of 6.5 by 7.5.
If you know a way to get these 2 designs + the JLF-P1 (used for Sanwa sticks) and the Seimitsu SS plate (used for the Seimitsu sticks, fitting close to the Sanwa), I'd be very interested to see the hole/mounting design.
I've posted in other threads asking for mounting area dimensions (holes and depth for mounting plate, also depth for the stick from the top plate), but there aren't any replies.

I've used fanta at my local arcade and they are pretty solid. Circle gate and bat top but not stiff at all.

Oh I've already got that one bookmarked but thanks! Stick height that's somewhat a matter of preference and can be adjusted. As for buttons that's another story but I think most people will be happy with Sanwa\Seimitsu 30mm or the standard Happ buttons as they actually fit in the same hole pretty good I have no idea about the Koren buttons yet. I'm trying to find a way to get the snap in buttons to work with this case and I have a few ideas but I need to get some to test it out. Looks like need to do some more shopping anybody know where I can still get some Japanese parts???

Now as soon as I get my mounting plate dimensions all figured out I'll get a few cut out and see if I can put it all together and start painting.
All comments and suggestions are welcome

That shit looks HOT. Seriously... that is some quality work right there.
One word of advice, though. Don't know if you have experience or whatever painting on wood, but I would suggest not painting on the actual wood itself (I come from an artist background). I would always use some kind of medium like Gesso or something... looks much cleaner and smoother.

Yeah I wish I had someone their with me to take pics while I was doing it but basically I just made the long cuts with the table saw then drew the lines I wanted to shave off with a pencil and hit it with the sanding wheel. The key to making this work was in the model I made and I'm not sure I want to give that away just yet

Wow these are sexy and amazing. By the way what program did you use to create those 3D models? I'm going to go ahead and guess that its Inventor. Just curious.

Really impressive Voltech. If you end up selling cases I might have to pick one of these up.
Would getting different hardwoods be an option?

I'd love to work with different woods in the future! Although I don't think I could do this shape with some of these woods but I have some other more organic ideas for that
