Pictured is a Stick with LS-33 with a 30mm ball top and various 24mm screw in buttons. The Acrylic is clear, there is a blue protective film to protect material from dust and scratches.
Pictures from all angles
If using PS360 Start and Select. I must emphasize, a Neutrik USB is NOT compatible due to space contraints.
Start and a switch craft Jack.
Left- Turbo and Guide can go here. If you have a switchcraft, Home and Select is an option.
Right - 4P and 4K
Rubber lined bottom. Hole for easy screw driver access to shaft for balltop adjustment.
Example Interiors (please remember I am selling the cases only, so no buttons sticks or PCBs)
MC Cthulhu Wired.
PS360 Wired. If your cord has no ferrite bead like my cord, then tie a knot to keep the cord from pulling out. Don’t use quick disconnects on 1/2 in. radio shack side buttons like I did here. I ended up cutting the QD’s off and soldering.
Pictures of Joystick Mounting
Bolts for Seimitsu VF plate and 2 screws for Switchcraft RJ-45 jack (jack not included)
Rough Measurements. For some cases the sides walls have a thickness of 1/4 while others are 3/8 due to what was in stock at the wood store.
Specifications, Links to parts, Art Template
LS-33 with VF plate (recommended. also suggest swappng out spring for a JLF spring)
LS-56/LS-56-01 with VF plate (default plate) (I suggest cutting 1/8 inch -1/4 inch off the bottom of actuator for looser spring tension)

Acrylic top panel allows for custom art.
Art templete can be downloaded here:
All cases will be finished with a Protective Urethane Varnish.
Q:Can you put on artwork for me? What about a template?
A:No. If want to put on art you will need to do that yourself. If you want to make a template, just take the acryllic and trace it and put it in a scanner, or put the acrylic in the scanner itself. Because it is a small case, it is cheap for you to print on your home printer with photo paper.
Available here is the Art Template that I made. I may be off a mm or two.
PNG: (must set resolution to 300 DPI
Q: Why blue Acrylic top panels? I want Clear.
A: The panels are actually clear. There is a blue layer of protective film that you can peel off when you are ready to apply the art.
Q: Can a Neutrik USB panel mount fit?
A: No. The problem is that with the Neutrik USB there is a 2-3 inch long cylinder of space needed behind the hole to clear a USB A connector. That runs into the button switches and often the USB A cable will encroach on the PCB space.
Q: Can you wire up the stick for me?
A: No. I really don’t want to for warranty reasons.
If you buy a PS360 PCB and your joysticks and buttons, all you will need is a wire cutter/stripper/cutter, wire, quick disconnects USB cable and a thin tipped 15-30 watt soldering iron.
For a MC Cthulhu it is a bit more involved.
Q:So both Sanwa and Seimitsu Screw in 24 mm buttons will work? What about 24mm snap ins?
A:Yes Sanwa and Seimitsu 24mm screw ins will work. Snap ins can work for the top six if you drill and bolt the top acrylic panel to the MDF Panel.
Q: Can I use quick disconnects?
A:Yes, but they will need to be bent. Look at the example builds photos above. For the Radio shack buttons you should solder wires. Quick disconnects to not securely stay on to those buttons.
Q:Sanwa JLF? LS-32-01, LS-40-01? Korean parts?
A: No. This was designed with the compact Seimitsu VF-Mounting plate in mind for compact seimitsu sticks.
Q: Happ or IL Joystick?
A: Are you crazy?
Q: Will a Madcatz Fightpad PCB fit?
Q: Can I dual mod a MC Cthulhu and a Xbox 360 PCB.
A: It might be possible with a TE PCB and a MC Cthulhu and Version 1 imp, but I have not tried this.
A:No. There is not enough horizontal width for all the buttons, without unnaturally curving the directional button layout.
