Hey, guys and gals.


I've got two old CX-10 joysticks from the heavy sixer that I'm trying to get working.  The problem is that I seem to be missing a few of the springs that go under the stick.  I tried a couple of similarly-sized springs I found, but the end result is a joystick that won't center properly and "sticks" in a couple of directions.


Any thoughts on where I might find replacement springs that would work with these things?

Best Electronics might have them.

That was my first stop.  Didn't see 'em.  Struck out at B&C too.

Try a well stocked hardware store.

The ace near me has a rack of bins with 120+ springs.

If you find some the right size and compression, I would replace all the springs a set.

The 10 has a loser "feel" than the 40, but you may end up liking it better for some games.

I find it to be my go to for HERO.

Also you may want to replace the switches:
