New pcbs (version 3) arrived today. I cut them and drilled the holes for the potentiometers.
Perhaps you should offer un-cut PCB's too (as it's easier to fit them in the printed case).

Hello. I would be interested in at least one of your Joystick Kits for my Vectrex system. If you still have room on your list I would like to be added. Thank you.

Due to fine weather, a few days of vacation and a constant lack of time, my progress is embarrassingly slow at the moment.
So, even, if you do not hear anything from me, I'm working in the background. The project is alive!
Thanks for your patience!

I finally ordered the 3D printed joysticks from a different manufacturer nearby. I should get them at the end of the week. I hope, they will be fitting exactly!
This means I could built and test a prototype of the new design. I really should do this, before I forget everything! It's really hard during summertime!

Glad to see this is still going. Someday I'll get a Vex and order one of these kits...

Thought I posted here but it turns out I did not. One, please!
On the list.

I built the first item of Vectrex Controller version 1.3!
It is fully working, as it is supposed to do. I found no faults. Great!
As you probably see, I rearranged components on the electronics pcb, to make it easier to mount a board to a panel. All bulky components are on the solder-side now. Slim components and controls are on the front side/component-side. Two 6 mm distance rollers and two screws hold the pcb in place. Controls are sitting directly on the pcb. You just have to provide cut-offs in the panel. Furthermore I rotated the board by 90 degrees, to gain some more room for the four buttons inside the case.
I can start now, to produce all those pcbs, assemble the kits and slowly try to serve the waiting list. I'll PM the people on the list one by one and ask, if there still is some interest or maybe no more. No obligations! If no more interested, I'll simply skip the line and jump to the next name on my list.
