I’ve been a long time lurker on SRK forums and always had the interest in building custom arcade sticks. I don’t know why I didn’t register in the beginning but I always came here to look at other people’s custom builds.
There are lots of good custom arcade stick builders on SRK and inspired me to start my own hobby as a service. I’m not sure if I’m late to the game but I will be starting to sell custom arcade cases as well. I’ve already prepped 12+ units so far in 2 types of material, MDF and pine. Pine is a little more expensive here than MDF so don’t be surprised if prices are different.
I have some pictures below of my latest unfinished prototype and it will be done once I get my parts from Akihabarashop in 1.5-2 weeks (I just got my email notification this morning, Thanks again TRNG!). The box will be rounded corners so don’t get the wrong impression that it will be a square box. The rounding process takes place in the end when the box is put together.
The holes that I’ve measured for is 30mm and test fitted with Sanwa OBSF-30 push buttons. What’s left to be done is test fitting the OBSN-30 screw in push button for those who wants that style. Also mounting of the JLF-P1 and Seimitsu SS bracket. I wanted to fit both brackets because there are some of you out there likes the Seimitsu stick than Sanwa. Yes, I know there are measurements online for every part out there but I’m the type of guy who likes to test fit before mass producing.
I’ve made 2 layouts, Blast city - 6 button and TE - 8 buttons. Interchangeable by having removable front panel screws to swap between layouts.
Here are the case measurements:
Cost breakdown will be unveiled when final product is done.
I’m from Toronto, well borderline outside of Toronto. More precisely Markham, near Pacific Mall. I’m willing to ship anywhere in North America just as long as you pay for shipping and packing material. Local pickup is also an option, saves yourself the shipping cost in GTA which is around 10-15 bucks (3-5 business days).
If your interested in getting one in the coming weeks, just reply to this thread or you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Try not to PM me plz
Thanks for reading and feedback is always welcome.
