Inside the WICO Ergostick

The WICO Ergostick was my joystick of choice during the ST days. In those days the mouse was getting more use then the joystick but it did relieve the wrist pain. I can use the left or right hand for the mouse but never became ambidextrous with any joystick.

 

The ergonomic design of the rubberized housing allowed for a solid grip without a lot of pressure and cleaned up nicely in the dish washer. I feel I should mention that you should remove any parts you don’t want to get wet. WICO used micro switches for this joystick and you do not want to get them wet.

 

This stick gave me the most trouble before it got fixed. It’s the one I used to test the Pocket Joystick Tester. Seemed to work when it was apart and stopped after the screws were tightened. Ended up being a broken wire near the plug; #1 to be exact. After the plug was cut off, a plug and cord assembly from another stick was graphed onto the cord. Now, not only do I get rock solid switching but there is two more feet of cable.
