I came across this site http://slagcoin.com/joystick/mounting_layering.html when looking for guides for making a custom arcade stick. One thing that caught my attention was that they recommended that sanwa buttons me mounted on a 2-4mm thick panel and that for Sanwa sticks, you put the mounting plate on top. I was wondering
1.) Can I mount the buttons on a thicker panel? 2-4mm is pretty weak for wood
2.) Will I really lose stability if the mounting plate for the joystick is beneath the panel?
