Hope you’re not planning on adding start/select to the sides, you may not have the room once you get top and bottom on.


#12

I saw your stick panda and the first thing I thought was ‘that was fast work’!

Domz, that case looks sliiiimmmm, what kind of stick/pcb are you going to put in there? Looks like you have some good tools and a dedicated place to work … I’m jealous.


#13

Dude those laser alignments on drill presses are awesome.


#14

I was kinda wondering the same about the stick. Sounds like it is going to stick out a bit more than usual.


#15

Looks really good. I’m going to be starting a stick of my own soon so I will be following this thread closely for more pictures and watch the evolution of this stick. Thanks for sharing!

i wish i could work with wood. keep up the good work


#18

how did you recess those button in? did you just drill out 24mm holes (i’m assuming those are the 24mm buttons), then router out a bigger area so the button would sink in? or?


#19

Forstner bits.

Make a guide hole, drill using the forstner bit to desired depths, than use a hole saw or forstner bit for the 24mm.

Looking great, Domz!


#20

Thanks man, wish I could work with metal! :wgrin:

As Imitrex said… forstner bits. I have to admit though that having a drill press is key. I used a 1 1/8" for the outside diameter and then a 24mm for the hole that the button actually fits through. IIRC, the proper size of the larger hole is actually a 27mm but they cost too much imo so… 1 1/8" was the next best alternative. Maybe down the line ill splurge and get the right size.

Thanx holmie!
