I’m creating my second custom stick, but this time I’m using Sanwa parts as opposed to Happ and I would like to have a slant in my case. I cut my wood according to Byrdo’s Small Sanwa Case Blueprint. (Will provide pic if you need it.)
I’ve been searching around all over the web, but haven’t really come up with any adequate solutions.
The back piece is 3.25"- H, and the front piece is 2.75"- H (0.5" Incline from front to back). Without any modification, when I lay these pieces together, they are clearly not flush.
Now, In my head, I imagine that I will need to bevel the top of the back and front pieces to a certain degree, but I have absolutely no idea what degree this would be, and how to even achieve such a thing.
I do have a table saw, so these types of cuts would appear to be relatively simple.
Is there any sort of tips, or any information anybody can provide me? Would be greatly appreciated. Thank you …
Edit: I don’t really want to start a new thread, but I’m sorta confused as to achieving a perfect mount with my JLF-TP-8T.
I really want to make sure that I get my joystick exactly in the middle of the 24mm hole. Is there any tricks, or do I just have to trust my measuring skills?
Also, I’m using 3/4" MDF for the control panel as the recipe calls for, how deep into the panel should I route for the mounting plate. I have a 5/8" straight router bit. Will this do fine, or should I get a different size?
Sorry for all the newbish questions, but I really want to make sure this stick is done perfect. My happ was sort of a disaster (didn’t have ANY of the right tools at the time), which is the reason for starting over in the first place. Also, sorry if this has been discussed, but let it be known that I did a fair bit of searching before I gave up.
Edit: Sorry, I forgot to mention that I will be bottom mountain the JLF to a single panel 3/4" MDF with .093" Plexi on top of the panel.
