Wow. What can I say, but thanks to Ponder for giving us our own section on SRK's Wiki.
 
  
I have always enjoyed playing fighting games at the arcades. So much, that I even loved playing their console counterpart. More so because continues were free! Playing with strangers you just meet at a big famous pizza restaurant like Peter Piper's Pizza, or Chucky Cheese and playing with friends who shared the same interest of fireball fights and tiger uppercuts for hours

This was not enough.  I had to get more of the arcade action at home. Sure, it could be argured that Sega's Dreamcast port of Marvel vs Capcom 2 is arcade perfect, but even if it was proven that it is I would strongly have to disagree. Why you ask? No sync. Playing on that bulky controller is far from arcade perfect and for that reason alone I say no synce. I don't feel connected. My mind wandering around trying to figure out what I'm missing, why can't I connect to this great game that I loved playing at the arcades and then it clicked. I'm not playing on an arcade control panel, thus I feel that I'm not there, in the thick of it all. So I began my search. My search for a TRUE ARCADE STICK that I can use at home.

Links lead to me one site that stuck out like a sore thumb. Click, as I left clicked my mouse and opened the link then there it was. An arcade stick... but it was home made! Upon further reading everything, I set out to build my first CUSTOM ARCADE STICK. After a few sticks, and a lot of green invested in tools, and other materials I bestowed my creation to my friends, who loved it and encouraged me to make more and eventually building and selling them online to people. So afterwards, I created a thread on SRK's forums for other builders to post pics, ask questions, and etc... A great thread that has ran for 3 years and very informative, but a pain to navigate and search through looking for answers that were already answered pages and pages ago. Now I have created a new thread. http://www.shoryuken.com/forums/showthread.php?t=108857 Part II, a sort of continuance with more links and new/old faces lurking around.

**Sanwa JLF - These are the most popular arcade stick used in Japanese arcades. These are the default joysticks used in Street Fighter 4 cabinets. They are different from American style sticks in that they have a square gate which makes the joystick feel like it is in a square hole and they are more compact.
