    By apologizing for creating such an abomination, I wanna show you the Finchenstein creature side by side with his pure-blood brother, which I bought in 1998 (what a glorious day...I bought it with a PSX and a copy of Tekken 2 <3 ) ank kept safe and clean until now (and of course...I will never touch it!)

    You're forgiven. Kinda. Sorta.

    I'll let you live for now.

    Check out my work!

    So, first time building a stick..my requirements are as small footprint as possible as I want it to be super portable..will post up more once I found a decent hardwood top panel. I plan to put some nice wooden kanji on side so will update once I get on it. Board is Brook ps3/4 breakout from focus attack which slots nicely in the gap below buttons on its side. I plan bigger sticks for regular use but this one will be my travel stick for laptop mame etc :)

    It looks small (and it is) but its still very comfortable for my work pc desk and my rucksack.

    You should switch to a 30mm ball top instead of the 35mm to make it a little more portable... LOL

    Very.

    Disconnect the wire harness.
    Unscrew the ball top
    unbolt the joystick from the panel

    Never pay double the retail price

    you will need the Sanwa ver. plexi cover or else the hole will be too big and the sanwa/hayabusa dustcover will fall in the edges get caught during play.

    @hibachifinal I hope that you install the Golden Fanta into that. The color scheme will be way off but remain one of the best sticks I have ever seen.

    @tanabe What buttons are those? I don't think I have ever seen those before. Are they 30mm?

    Forgot that he was referring to the Omni stick.
    Yeah you want to swap plexy too, which is just 2 more steps.

    Currently using a PS3-PS4 superconverter to make it work on ps4. I might do a padhack for it soon since FC4's are very common in the Philippines. It was my first time modding this stick and it was fun lol.

    Seimitsulicious! Nicely played, sir!

    Thinking of offloading some sticks and parts soon too. The closet is getting cluttertastic, and I'm now getting "how many of these fucking things do you really need for just a PC and a Dreamcast?"

    Thanks! Yes, I created a model and had a friend with a cutting machine make this for me. It's sparked some attention at my local, and I hate having to tell people they're not retail :(

    How much would something like this run?

    With machined aluminum, a smaller, blockier case will run you around $400. My case shown in the pictures-with the number of curves, cuts and it's size falls in the thousands. Not only is aluminum heavy and built to last, but these cutting machines never fail (compared to 3D Printing). A video game controller is probably the last thing expected to be built out of this material.

    @jeeble actually there were some smaller machined cases by nhtran years back that were pretty cool

    @jopamo I know I was asking in case I wanted to go this route for a case in the future

    thats what you payed for it?...

    btw, what is the weight of the stick?

    No, a friend of mine has a aluminum machine of his own. That's how much a service would cost to manufacture, at least for a quantity of one.
    After parts install, it weights close to ten pounds. Thank God I added those handles.

    Question is is your pal doing this at cost of materials or just a steep discount.
    Also your friend with the machine should be able to give you at least a rough estimate.
    We also need to factor in what alloy of aluminum is used. Different alloys fetch difference pricing.
    The good stuff, aircraft aluminum isn't cheap. The Cheap stuff isn't worth your time trying to mill.

    He's told me that most of the cost would be influenced by the job itself (quantity, how complex of a model it is), but I myself don't know how much materials are influenced, and I can't give a guess either, cause I don't know what kind of aluminum he's using here. He says most of the cost comes from the fact he only produced one. Services would normally have several machines workkng in unison on the same model, which is where his estimated price comes from.

    Exactly, how some numbers dude! Or did you get this completely free? It's not like you are giving away his name and address.

    Oh, yes, this job was done out of niceness, I was hoping that would be implied in the earlier messages. I don't think anyone in their right mind would go for a project of that price.

    It's not really over yet since I still have some finishing job to do.

    From FocusAttack, JLF Stick, seimitsu buttons and brook pre-installed PS3/4/PC PCB (for the next one I'll try to do the soldering myself but this is my first stick so I tried to keep it simple)


    I jsut saw that on Twitter and was amazed at how gorgeous that case is.

    @jonyfraze is that one of the clear meshtops that PAS has for sale?

    Those look amazing. I was wondering how they'd look in the light of day, and there we go.

    Focus Attack has had them for a bit too. I agree. They look great in the light.

    Thanks! They made a few different ones years ago. I have those and some horned helmets. Also, I should have thought to ask when I ordered the stick from you. They attached easily enough though. I'm loving it!
    Found a pic of those screws:
