    There is a fait bit of room in there, not a ton but I think one will fit, altough I don't know their dimensions (if you have them I can check and see)


    I'll take inside pics this weekend.

    EDIT: got pics of the insides? Please?

    Some of you expressed an interest in seeing the inside of these sticks.

    I've been extra lazy lately but I got around to opening them up for another photo shoot.

    2nd picture is to illustrate how much space there is below the joystick in order to know what other sticks would fit in this enclosure. The stick in there right now is a Sanwa JLF. The JLF is installed with some 5-8mm (I don't remember exactly) spacers to keep it a bit below the metal panel to get the correct mounting height. The enclosure is 1.64" high in front, and 3.14" high in back, so moving the stick up a bit would allow a larger stick to be mounted.

    Details

    2 identical sticks
    Metal enclosures with walnut sides
    Sanwa JLF sticks
    Sanwa 30mm snap in buttons
    Toodles Cthulhu boards for PC/PS3
    15pin port for Neo Geo/Supergun

    They took forever, and cost too much, but oh so worth it.

    Big thanks to all who answered all my questions about these while I was working on them.

    Definitely the nicest looking Neo stick I've seen. You've inspired me to make my own. I'll be PMing you for the artwork file. Much appreciated

    I like the enclosure the best... so much that I am going to use the noslope one to build a supergun! I think the walnut sides are amazingly clean and perfect for a nice finished look... thanks, now I have a new project to do... geez!

    I'll echo the others.... sweet work Finch. Considering you're practically in my back yard, I'd love to get my grubby hands on one of them. Don't worry, I'm not a stalker.

    Did you paint the enclosure black or did it come that way? The product you linked to seems to indicate a grey colored top?

    I had to paint them. I wish they came powder coated black.

    I figure if the black paint doesn't hold up I'll take them apart, get them sand blasted and powder coated.
