Default left and right handed matching joysticks

I like these sticks I wonder how hard it would be to fit them with working hat switch and others?

Nick Ugolini's grips are made from this product and he did a demo at RR. These are plastic pellets which melt somewhere around 150F and stay pliable until they cool. Inexpensive and easy to work with. Worth a try in my book. Thanks Nick...

well, they already have a working hatswitch, plus a bunch of other switches on them. Being consumer gaming-nerd quality, they are meant to take a hammering, but they will not manage any more current than a few milliamps, and there must be no flyback or the contacts will be burned, so low current and diode-protection is a must.

Definitely dont sand or paint them - The have a superb finish already. Split in half easily with a screwdriver and see if they need a more solid internal tube, or fill the existing handle/tube with flox.
