I put together a tutorial for Rod from Himuragames.com.
A bunch of people have been asking for it so here it is.
You can upgrade your “SET5TASS” from the information there.
I think that the resulting joystick is better than your RAP because of the fact that the mirror finish is just a bad idea. It looks totally dirty and scratches so easy.
It’s a work in progress so please leave no replies there till i’m all done with the tutorial
The joystick portion is basically done. I could add some pictures for clarity though. The button side is still coming in.
I’d like to put out a shout to people that have published their ideas and work that I’ve referenced in this tutorial and mixed in with my own techniques.
Catch22 - all of the initial JLF in a Hori/Namco pictures.
SpiffyShoes - method to mount screws between housing and PCB.
ShinJN - Sanwa button prong bends.
