OK, I have enough parts on the way for 2 sixaxis based wireless PS3 Fightsticks. I will be using the axisdapter from lizard lick amusements. Im pretty sure i have the wiring side of things figured out…multiple grounds soldered connections, shrink tubing, and a project box.
my intention is to make quite a bit more to give as gifts, and sell at cost to close friends locally.
so now I need to figure out what I want to do in regards to case. MDF seems like a good choice, im planning on using solid colors at least initially. For future builds I might try my hand at some more advanced woodwork. but for now, i think i can achieve some good results by wetsanding and lots of coats of spray paint/ clear coat, followed by compounding and polishing.
I have a router, but i have no clue what kind of bit I need to carve out the mounting area for my JLF’s, along with the back side of the button holes…I also want to make the buttons on the side inset. my father can help me construct the jigs and carve it out, but i need to know what im looking for at Home depot.
are there any good guides pertaining to this that I may have missed?
Also, whats the best waty to cut acrylic? I have a table saw, and i am familiar with the score and snap technique…im assuming table saw is better…but i don’t know what kind of blade to get.
Does anyone here ever Use glass instead of Plastic for the top?
any input would be appreciated.
