Alright, so I just cut the holes for my buttons and I am freaking out here because I don’t have my buttons here yet so I can’t check my work. There’s at best 4.5mm (.18") between a pair of button holes and at worst 3.5mm (.14"). Please someone tell me I’m wrong and it will work out in the end…or ease the pain and throw me a curved 6 button layout for use with the OBSNs that you’ve personally used and had no problems with. I used a template (yes, it’s to scale…checked with my caliper) I found on joystick vault:
I’ve cut another top panel out just in case and plan to use a slagcoin template this time around, but I’d like to skip that if possible and just use the one I’ve already cut. I’ve gotta leave town to go back home on Friday so I have to get this stuff with the drill press wrapped up tomorrow.
Here’s a top-down picture of my box/panel so far…any of you experienced stick builders see anything problematic here? Do those holes look a bit close or am I just freaking myself out? I know that’s kinda hard to judge but I figured it can’t hurt to give it a shot. This is my first stick so I need all the help I can get.
