Need measurement of side button(s)
« on: September 11, 2014, 05:39:20 pm »
Was wondering if someone with a real Pinball machine would kindly take a couple of measurements for me.
Need measurement of top of glass/metal edge trim down to center of button & front edge to center of button (flipper button).
Best explained in the picture below:

This is what I came up with while researching for a pinball controller. (see sig)

The flipper buttons could be a little bit closer, but no closer than 36.5mm center to center.

Don't just assume these measurements are good for your application -- verify whether the button positions are comfortable for you at the height and angle of your cab.
