Inside my Computek Joystick

The Computeck joystick was very similar to the Quickshot 2 in that it used the same spring-flipper switches and it had a pistol grip. The base contained 2 extra trigger buttons and a sticker that said, “MADE IN TAIWAN”.

 

It has no auto-fire circuit but the PC board has the traces to implement one. One might assume that the on-off switch would have been placed in a notch on the bottom.

 

An emery board, borrowed from my wife’s manicure kit has found a permanent place in the tool box for cleaning and polishing contacts. She didn’t want it back when she saw what I was doing.

 

I must have been using this joystick while I was still smoking. There is something about cleaning 20 year old nicotine off the equipment that makes me wonder how many joysticks have been destroyed due to second had smoke.
