US/Canada: Need JLFs, mounting plates, wiring harnesses, octo gates?


Hey everyone,

Hope this isn’t considered spam by any means, nor am I the seller of these items, but I’ve been hunting for a supplier of Sanwa JLF crap for the past few weeks at a decent price and shipping cost. I’m just hoping to help out others in the same kind of situation. Never thought SF4 would drain suppliers so hard.

Well I stumbled upon some eBay store, located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and they have plates/harnesses/octo gates in stock. They’re also selling JLF sticks, but the price they’re asking is pretty high and the shipping kinda kills it.
Mounting plates were $7 USD EDIT: Back in stock, he jacked them to $8 USD
Wiring harnesses were $3 USD
Octo gates were $6 USD
JLFs were $32.50 USD

What I personally did was order the plates/wiring harness from the eBay guy and grabbed the JLFs from srk member, who’s website, ironically enough, is

His feedback looks great, ships quick and answers all questions really quickly. Definitely trustworthy, I’m sure other people can vouch for him.

Edit again: is temporarily out of stock, see his page for more info.

Ended up being the cheapest alternative for me to get what I needed from places that had stuff in stock at reasonable prices. Hope this helps some people.

Oh and both the eBay store and are selling a limited selection of buttons if you need them.

Edit: Just remembered srk member laugh is also selling lots of stuff in the Trading Outlet

His prices and items:
[Sanwa Parts]

JLF-TP-8Y-SK (Dark Hai) = $20
OBSF-30 (Dark Hai) = $2
OBSF-24 (Yellow) = $2
OBSM-30 button plugs (black) = $1 each

Great guy, great feedback, answers all PMs within hours and is super nice.


the guy jacked the price up after i bought them…

i got them at $5 each + $5 shipping… now it’s $7 each plus $5.80 shipping… WTF!



FYI, he’s sold out now.

Edit: Of the mounting plates that is…


I just found his eBay store today, so I didn’t know about the price jacking.

Haha wow that was fast. Well to whoever got them, congrats I guess.

Hopefully he restocks soon.


Nice etown,
This is exactly what I did as well. Until stores start selling sanwa parts again, I had to scrounge for parts.

I’m still trying to track down some Sanwa OBSN-30 buttons. There was a seller on eBay selling OBSN-24 buttons in a variety of colors, but no 30s. I’m going for a Pink/Green/Yellow setup with my two sticks to emulate an Astro City color scheme.


I’m still looking for wiring harness for my JLF but I don’t see it from ebay link


You gotta ask the seller to sell you the harnesses. He usually only sells them with the mounting plate, but if you “Asked a Question” him about one of his parts, I think he’d sell you a wiring harness on the side.

I haven’t seen any OBSN-30s anywhere either unfornately, but I’ll keep my eyes peeled.

Good luck everyone!


Coo, thanks for the tip


Thanks for the link


Just a heads up, looks like he restocked but jacked up the price. I editted OP

Restocked mounting plates, that is


nice man i found this seller today but he didnt have any auction for mounting plates, guess he restocked a few hrs after that lol, i think this is my best option even tho the price is a bit high


EDITed, is temporarily out of JLFs, but laugh in the trading outlet still has a bunch!

Find laugh’s thread here:


I ordered a JLF and a mounting plate from this seller on 3/19 and received it today. Though it is advertised as a JLF-TP-8Y, I also ordered a mounting plate, and they went ahead and put on the mounting plate and turned the PCB so all I had to do was drop it right in to my SE fight stick. The JLF did come at a premium, but I was glad to pay it for what I got.


The plate is crap, or least the screws and harness are. The screws don’t fit into the stick and the harness is just random cables shoddily terminated into a crap connector.


I ordered three sets of Sanwa buttons and JLFs from the Playdium Store in Toronto. I made a call last Friday morning and early Monday morning the package showed up at my door (UPS delivery, 12 dollars to Saskatoon). It was 3 dollars a button and 34 dollars a joystick, no PST, Canadian currency.


I ordered a JLF Octagonal Gate and received a square gate…

Email him about it and this is what I get.

“We selling as is match pictured. if you don’t like it sent them back for refund. sorry for your inconvenience.”

I don’t want to shittalk him or give him bad feedback but when I purchase the item this is the description “Sanwa SF IV brand new GT-8F JOYSTICK octagonal plate”

Lesson learn anyways… its my first ebay purchase too…


Sorry for the necro-post, but I’m planning on purchasing a mounting plate from this guy. (!BOvvuwgBGk~$(KGrHgoH-C8EjlLl3wEGBJwQY))NrQ~~_1.JPG

Do you think this would even fit on a JLF? It looks about right, but it looks different from the mounting plate that comes with a JLF-8YT. I don’t trust what he says on the listing, considering he sent out square gates when the listing clearly says octo-gates. He’s also listing it as a JLW-P-1, but a JLW plate shouldn’t fit a JLF. Confusing stuff.


Buy it from for less. And Nareg (who owns is much faster, friendlier, and reliable.


i got stock on some jlf’s right now. i’m in canada. my shipping is exactly what you see on no funny stuff.

also to the guy who bought from playdium store. aren’t they still out? dave from toronto and maurice from montreal both called me asking for a supplier overseas. i’m sure that’s a problem if they are asking me for a source.
i must say though their puro shipping is dirt cheap. i had some overnight canpar stuff for some cabs sent to me and i was a lil shocked at the price for overnight.



Well, I posted that about a month ago. They might be out now, I dunno.

Yeah, it got sent sooooo fast and super cheaply, I was surprised.
