Interest check for a run of 7800 joysticks

Recommended Posts

NOTICE: Please refer to the dedicated marketplace thread if you want to request one:

 

 

The stick and buttons are clicky and have a good tactile feel for Chinese clone hardware. The button layout is such that I can lay my fingers over them like a traditional arcade control panel or use my thumb hugging the side like a gamepad. Rubber feet make it sturdy against a desktop or you can hold it in your lap.

 

Done/shipped:

Looking good.  You can put me down for one.  I have one of your clicky Jaguar pads and I like that very much.

They look pretty cool. I would love to get one... if the stick was on the right.  Not sure if that's something possible to configure before you put them together.

I could easily mirror the pictured design in the first post. Made a template when I went to drill the holes so I'd get the spacing proper, that could be flipped around.

That's pretty cool, Bratwurst. IMHO there's a real lack of right-handed joysticks out there.

That looks like a authentic 7800 arcade stick that Atari would have made 37 years ago.

I like it! Can I replace the buttons & stick with my own?

I think so, but you'd have to verify the mount plate dimensions as I use a 3D printed harness to mount the stick. I might have to include a different harness or you might have to find a way to mount it yourself. The buttons are standard 24mm through-holes.

Would you be interested in selling just the enclosures?

Those don't look like anything I've seen from the usual suppliers.

Perhaps.  It would be nice to have another controller in addition to the pack-in joystick and the NES-style joypad controller I have.

Certainly. I'll get in touch, I have a bunch of the enclosures.

 

I've ordered materials to do a few more of these sticks and I'll reach out to people in the order that they expressed interest as I produce them, but be aware that it's going to be scheduled around my free time so don't expect anything overnight.

Just in case it wasn't clear from my reply, definitely put me down for one w/ buttons on left/joystick on right as well if available.

I figured. Please see below:

This good? I assume you'd want the arrangement to be right fire, left fire, joystick. But if you want left fire, right fire then joystick I can do that, just lemme know.

Awesome, that looks amazing.  I don't really know if I have a strong preference so I'm fine either way, but if I can choose I'd probably rather have left fire, right fire, joystick.
