Joystick mountingplate and restrictor gate questions


If I’m making my own stick, what kind of mounting plate should I have for the joystick> S-shaped or flat? I’d probably be going with one of those two sanwa joy sticks… So which would be easier to install or overall better?

As for restrictor gates, my arcade uses square gates, but I think I may like octagonal gates more, although I haven’t used one. Is there a general consensus for which gate is more popular/should be used?


You use the plate that results in the correct mounting depth, so it depends on your material thickness and mounting method. Check out slagcoin for more info.

Gates are personal preference.


If you use a octagonal gate on your custom, it could be harder for you to use the arcade square gate sticks.

And square gate is nice for a charge character because you can feel the corners
