Joystick-Like Grip

Unread postAuthor: MaxuS the 2nd » Sat Jun 07, 2008 4:03 am

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a grip like this:

I need help looking for something like this for an unrelated project.
If it were just a plastic shell, that would be even better.

If you need a joystick-like grip, I would use a joystick if I were you.
Just find an old one and use it.

Surely an old PC/Amiga joystick can be found at a car-boot sale for next to nothing?

I had thought about this but it is really not what I'm after.

Perhaps if I were to make a mould from an existing joystick and then cast my own. This is because I need several identical, professional quality ones.

Can I ask why?
And if you need identical, just buy alot of cheap ones of the same type.
(Or just cast them in an a mould)

It's a totally unrelated project to spudguns.
I think that making my own is probably the best chance.

Can I ask what it is for?

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.
