My custom stick factory :)


#1

Hey everyone !

To make it short, I was brought into fighting games by friends who were already quite into it and owned their own arcade stick(s). When I started playing more seriously I needed a stick of my own… And I couldn’t really afford to buy a brand new one. SO… Since I’m in a product design school, and I already saw that some people were making their own custom stick, I decided to do so…

So I came here to present you my blog where i’m posting my works, since as I made mine, I’ve been asked by friends or other people to make them a custom arcade stick.

I’m about to make the wolverine arcade stick you can see on the blog. I think i’ll start the production in the end of august. Then i’ll have two more orders to complete !

I’m opened to any (constructive) critics etc… Enjoy :slight_smile:

Go check John Aslarona’s artworks if you didn’t already. It’s a really good illustrator with a great personnal drawing style (imho).

You should check some older artworks he made, like the kind of “zombie” wolverine… Pretty sick…

EDIT : Ah, found it

#17

What type of joystick is in this? Looks a little high…


#18

its often hard to tell in photos, specially with the reflection in the picture.


#19

It’s a JLF-TP-8YT. It’s just that the way I fix it makes them a little bit higher (on purpose). Give more room for the hand :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot :slight_smile:

Although I don’t really feel in the same field, since they do a lot a productions, and reuse the same case shapes several times. Also, I’m no using CNC machines to make mines, all is done by hand with nothing more than a band saw, a sanding machine and sometimes a manual router. ^^
