Tell me what you guys think?

It has a custom plate that is 6mm thick so the hight is exactly like the cabinet AstroCity. Weight about 3.5Kg (8 pounds?). Insidepics (with cool lexan wiringdiagrams) will be posted soon.

Beautiful.


#6

glad to see you got your new design working Per! looks great :slight_smile:


#7

Looks good, but why are stickmakers putting the buttons so far away? Sanwa layout should(?) allow you to play with one hand and this one doesn’t.


#8

My guess would be personal preference; thats the true joy of custom stick building.

Sanwa layout might be to congested for some peers.

Later,

Hmmm, I want to build my own stick and I’m finding theorizing difficulty(:P) at keeping the thing in one piece and the mounting plate.

How do you attach the mounting plate and how do you hide it? And what do you use to keep the thing in one piece? I’d like to use something that allows quick disassembly(for the most part then) without damaging it.

Thanks! They are special mountingscrew for wood, I can maybe take a pic of them someday. I have them in goldcolor to ^^. Also, it is Lexan, not plexiglass (I guess you know this ^^).

Edit: I countersunk it using this:

And the screws I am using are these (this is the “gold” model).
