I strongly feel that this has been answered somewhere, but I’ll throw out the for-now-legit excuse that the Search function is down. :wasted:
One thing I haven’t seen come up as a question too often was the gauge of wire for pad hacking and shoving into QDs. I’ve seen random posts here that had people using stuff from 30 gauge to something as huge as 22.
Since I want to perform a temporary dual-console mod my stick for X360 (Read: SFIV) and PS2 use before Microsoft finishes repairing my console, I was just wondering if there was an optimal size wire gauge for pad hacking purposes. If for some reason it’s like an argument for arcade parts (i.e. it comes down to preference) is there any rationale behind using a certain range of gauges over any other? slagcoin said that things between 20-26 gauge is what the usual range is for a project like this, but then he also gets down to things like stranded and solid core wire, which I’m not one hundred percent sure about either. Do all wire sizes come in stranded or solid core varieties or do the smaller side wires only come in stranded and whatnot? Which is better for a task such as pad hacking?
Thanks for taking time to help a guy out folks.
