So I have a habit of opening and reopening sticks, either because I forget a piece, or something feels off, or because I’m dumb. Further driving this last point home, I tend to strip, break, or just mutilate a ton of screws in the process. Every time I try to find a replacement at a hardware store, its always something a little off, or different instead of a direct copy.
So I’m hoping this topic can be a resource or compendium for places and screw types that are close if not perfect replacements for retail arcade sticks. I searched but If its a dupe or useless topic please close.
Sticks I’m missing screws for:
-one of the top 6 bolts. got a replacement from Orchard Supply Hardware measured at 7X12mm but they don’t make “flat” bolts, just machine screws
- one of the bottom 6 screws
-the four screws that hold the stick (in this case a seimitsu LS-32) onto the case
MadCatz SE Fightstick
-missing all the bottom screws
-one of the bottom eight screws
-one of the top 6 bolts
