I made an arcade stick without a laser while I wait for my Glowforge

I can only imagine I’ll be able to make a much better one of these with my Glowforge. March can’t come soon enough. Until then, free cardboard from the post office, tape, and cheap chinese parts.

Cool! Arcade stick is on my list of thing to make as soon as I get my GF! How are you liking the “cheap chinese” stuff? You think it’s worth getting that or springing for some “quality”?

Sweet!!!

I think for just starting out, the cheap stuff works really well. It’s almost definitely a knockoff sanwa stick and buttons, but they function pretty damn well, especially for the money.

Nice, I’m no arcade connoisseur so I will definitely buy cheap to start out!

if you want it to really replicate the arcade experience, remember to pour a coke over the buttons for that perfectly sticky and failure-prone feel.

I’m pretty sure that will happen organically :grin:
