Need some help selecting a joystick

I'm building a custom control panel out of 3/4" MDF. What joysticks do you guys use when you bottom mount and don't use a router?

I looked at a couple from Happ but they would be short once you take 3/4" off to account for the bottom mount. I don't have access to a router so that isn't an option.

I'm looking for a bat top with 4/8 way switching if possible.

Thanks all!

Brox,

Hello and welcome!!

I have two Mag-Stik Plus sticks on my CP. Very nice and well worth taking a look at.

Thanks Ron! I've looked at those but they also appear to have "standard" length shafts. Is there a way to adjust them to make them longer so they will be normal height when bottom mounted?

Thanks much.

Brox,

Mine are mounted on 1/2" plywood from the underside. From the top of the ply to the top of the bat is a little shy of 3 1/2".

Andy is very good to work with. Send him an email and ask. :)

Thanks,

Ron

Thanks for the info guys.

HazzardActual - I've looked on the Happ website and I didn't come across the long shafted bat tops, I'll take a look again. Thanks for the insight.

Polemicist - I'm actually using a Golden Tee cabinet and it has a 3/4 inch control panel. I sealed all the original holes and I'm starting from scratch.

This is exactly what I'm looking for. I sent him a PM but I haven't got a response just yet. If you look at the pictures you can see the joystick height is good and it doesn't appear that he routed the base out, I could be wrong though. He may have routed out from the top and the overlay covers it.
