How do you drill the panel for the joystick?

My panel is about 1.6 cm thick (0.62 inch). When I put my JLF on it, the shaft is not long enough. How would I drill a rectangle in the panel so that the JLF is installed a little deeper and the shaft is the correct length?

Assuming you’re using a material like wood or plastic a router is the common choice.

if I was a mod id be locking these threads left and right…

go look at the stickies and maybe try hitting the search button

then come back when youve actually put alil effort into researching

a router? Search wood working 101 on google…

yes… the recess can be made with a router

maybe you should hit the stickies as well.
