Hi, I’m new here please don’t hate me. :s
I have an old wooden box laying around, it’s pretty perfect in size to be used as an arcade stick case.
The only thing that worries me is whether or not the top of the box (panel?) can endure carrying the 340grams of the Sanwa JLF. The top of the box is about 3.5mm thick.
I never built a stick before, I’ve seen other DIY projects from simple wood boxes, but i don’t understand how can 2 little screws with 2 little nuts can hold this weight + all the movement pressure applied on the joystick.
Will the screws tear down the wood from the inside after extended use?
