I just had an epiphany whilst contemplating the crafting of a joystick case…
I work for an industrial electrical distributer, we carry a line of fiberglass enclosures that we typically install pushbuttons and selector switches into for our customers.
There’s one specific size that seems to be ideal for a joystick: 10 x 16 x 5
It weighs in at 8.8Lbs - so it’s pretty sturdy for a table top, and not TOO huge for a lap.
I can install a backpanel on the inside to secure all the doodads and gizmos, like terminal blocks (which we also carry :tup: ) and the PCB.
Here’s a few snapshots of the box:
I’ll make it a project and include photos as I go along :bgrin:
Here’s some more pictures, showing the smaller sized enclosure in relation to the larger.
Here’s a render of the smaller enclosure - not going to win any beauty contests, but it could be painted
