WTB: sanwa flash joysticks. will trade cnc work
« on: July 23, 2005, 06:41:53 pm »
I know there discontinued but does anyone know where I can get or have for sale sanwa flash joysticks. I need two, and I would preffer new but Ill probably take what I can get.

since no one seems to be willing to sell these I thought I would try to trade for the only somewhat unique arcade related thing I have. I am a draftsman/engineer & cnc programmer at a large commercial cabinet company. I am the only programmer of a 200k cnc router I can cut any cabinet design imaginable to exact specs. I see alot of people building cabinets with small 1" cleats With a cnc router I can cut plows (dados) into the sides so everything will fit together with notches then you just screw from the outside & laminate or bondo over the screws. This gives the strongest joint and is required for premium grade cabinetry in the awi standards. I can route designs into the side of cabinets also and cut any curve. If it can be drawn in autocad I can cut it. My only limitaions is that it is a 3 axis router and the smallest available bit is a 1/8" dia.  So If you have a sanwa flash and would like a custom cabinet I can cut it for you including material and drafting all I need is a sketch.

I just tried one and I really want them for my cabinet. Im willing to pay $100 ea. for new sticks. Its my understanding that this is the high end of the current pricing for these.

Have any of you guys tried asking Byrdo if he'd be willing to sell any?

I sent him a message on saturday no response yet. I considered buying a couple of joysticks from him and replacing them w/ regular sanwa's and reselling.

well. . . to me yes cos I detest US style sticks (sorry folks  :-\ ) but alot of peoples love the P360's.
funny thing is, the P360's are s'posedly the same parts as the sanwa's optical doodah anyways, I guess its down to taste. i wouldn't sell my Flash sticks ever and if I could get more, i'd stockpile em  ;D

I've used a Sanwa joystick before, just never heard of the Flash.  I'd like to see if they are really any different than a P360, but don't think I'll buy one just to find out heh.
