The goal of this project is to make an affordable high quality arcade stick (or fightstick) in the easiest way possible. I recently discovered Retropie and wanted to have a custom arcade stick to play retro games.
Instead of building a case from scratch, we use a storage case to make the build much faster and easier. Sanwa joystick and Seimitsu button were used to achieve high level of performance.
I'm very satisfied with the overall results. The only difficulty encountered was reducing the thickness of the side panels with the forstner bit. Maybe a router would be a better alternative, but that will require an additional tool.
