Custom Stick - Top-Mounting Sanwa JLW-TM-8 Joystick?

I know there are a number of threads for the noobs but I can’t seem to find information, and I did try searching a lot but came up with nothing. I searched all though the essential joystick thread, noobie/tech support, etc.

I’m building a wood-based stick and I’ve got a Sanwa JLW-TM-8 ball-top joystick. What’s the best way to go about doing this?

I’ve tried reading up on how to top-mount the stick but there aren’t any resources that I could find. Also, is this the only way to do it?

I know that this will seem like child’s play for some of you… If I missed a topic that covered this you can just point me that way, but I think I’ve looked through everything. Just know I didn’t make this post without looking!

Have you tried

especially here to found

I would say ist a question of personal taste (if you mount it top or below the plate) :wink:
