I’m trying to remember whether we’ve had this conversation before…
But just in case, the joystick assemblies out of a Futaba FP-T5FN R/C
transmitter are perfect for building JS-1 repros. They can frequently be
found for cheap on ebay. The case you want is a Hammond 1456FE1WHBU:
I think DigiKey and Mouser sell them, I don’t recall which was cheaper.
I never found good buttons, I used Radio Shack buttons with the smallest
possible hole size so I can widen them out at some later date when I find
good keyswitch buttons like the original.

Agreed. I also have the Dazzler in my system and I recently acquired a D7+A card and I have a joystick core sitting around some where. I’m going to try to build a JS-1 and see if the card I have works.
