Sanwa JLF Shaft Height


Hey, so I bought a modded EX2, all sanwa parts, love it so far but I can’t help but think there is something different about mine

Whenever I look at other custom jobs or even HRAP sticks etc, the shaft height on the stick always look lower than mine, and also arcade machine cabs seem to have lower shaft heights too

Am I missing something? How would I go about changing the shaft height?


The shaft height is typically 23-24 mm from the top of the panel to the bottom of the ball top.

You will need some space added between the joystick base and the bottom of the panel to achieve this height, something that I don’t think you can do with the limited space inside the EX2.

Another method is to use the stock Hori shaft and Hori actuator as seen in this guide.
