I remembered reading somewhere that arcade sticks are approximately 23~24mm from balltop to panel.
Heres a diag of the JLF i intend to use
From mounting plate to balltop, its around 34 mm, this means that even if the stick is bottom mounted , i would need the panel to be at least 10mm thick right
Hence the height of the box would have to be around
10mm (panel + plexi)
34~36mm (mounting plate and below)
total = 46~50mm.
Is this the height of most boxes ? Or do people tend to ignore the optimised 24mm shaft above the panel ?
