Over past 3 months I've acquired three CX-22's.

- One of them works flawlessly.

- One of them has warped clip on encoder wheels (C020571 Rev 3) causing jittering and malfunctioning movement.

- One of them has warped press on encoder wheels (C020571 Rev 5) causing jittering and malfunctioning movement.

 

I contacted Bradley at Best and he no longer has any replacements, but gave me the hack tip of heating them with hair dryer, etc. Here is the issue, I accidentally broke one of the press on wheels last night while dis-assembling. 

Anyone know where I can get replacement encoder wheels? Anywhere? Leads?

 

Would love to get all three working. Well, the other two ;-) since one is working.

Might just modify one with a HAPP joystick, low profile arcade button on right and a steering pot on left. Hmm...  :cool: 

Haven't seen that done before.

If you got a good one, could it be scanned and printed? Someone in your area probably has some good equipment and can do this. I'm just dipping my toe in the 3d scanning / printing world, but already see some amazing potential.

I thought about this already as well. The other one is non broken, so it could be done. Not sure.
