Hey SRK… just wanted to spread the word a bit. My dad and I are starting a side business making arcade sticks. (He’s the woodworker I’m the paint/pcb/wiring guy)
Its roughly the size of the Madcatz TE without the angled sides. It shares the exact same layout (aka 8button Vewlix) and the same size plexi’s.
Here is a pic of the unfinished Stick body only with plexi:
I’m in the process of painting one right now that you can see here:
And heres the first prototype i finished, with the TE plexi minus the turbo window… I already have a new plexi from art but have not yet installed it:
I’d appreciate feedback, different layouts are possible, but it will take longer because we have to make it one-off. I’m in the process of making a site for selling them, and they should be very competitively priced.
I have sanwa buttons in various colors ready to go, and a few JLFs… I’m hoping to focus on selling the unfinished boxes… perhaps just painting or staining them as an option; so that all you do-it-yourselfers will be able to get a quality box.
