Question about arcade sticks


I know this may be a silly question, but please hear me out - Is there any way or modification that can be done to a JLF (or other stick) that will stop it from spinning around, shaft and all?

Reason I ask is that I’m contemplating a new stick design and I will most likely use a hollow shaft with wires will go through as well as a custom top. I don’t want it to spin around because a) it could cause the wires to twist and eventually break and b) having the sticks locked in place will make it easier to use for what I’m planning.

Any ideas?


If you lock it in place I think you’ll break something after a while as it twists as you perform qcf etc.
