Help! Trying to identify older Sanwa stick + PCB Question


(Click to biggify)

Finally got around to pulling an old Sanwa stick from some old hardware. Everything looks to be in good condition, but one direction wasn’t working. It seems like a dated model, as it used 4 separate microswitches.

This leaves me with a question: Can I drop a newer style switch in there (like: or even an Optical one ) with little problem? or should I just go looking for micro switches?

I’d rather have the modern pcb / switch assembly if it’s an option… I’m just wondering can identify the pictured stick and let me know if the PCB will fit.

  1. Sanwa JLW
  2. No. You’ll have to use individual micro-switches.
