CP mounting plate

Post by erzane »

I wonder if the "S" type base plate have standard measures on every CP and if it's possible to desolder it? The base plate present on that 3D CP does have four treaded holes.
I'd like to solder a base plate on the raw CP that I built but sanwa/seimitsu dont sell any threaded ones. How others CPs plates looks like ?
Thanks !

Those mounting plates are different depending on what joystick(s) are intended to be mounted to it, and which manufacturer the control panel is from.

The panels that I manufacture have mount plates for Sanwa JLF sticks that look like this:

Are both holes of those mounting plates threaded or do you use nuts? Do you use a specific tool to desolder them if needed to be replaced ?

The are not soldered, they are spot welded.

The only way off is grinding, or destroying the panel.

The holes on mine are just drilled, so you need to use a nut on the back side like on some of the licensed Sega panels. The original Sega ones are swaged before being threaded to give more material thickness for the threads, but I'm not setup to do that properly.

As above they are spot welded on, not soldered, but maybe that's just an incorrect translation ?

You can drill out spot welded welds if you are careful, but our machine has big contact tips giving a bigger weld meaning they would be harder to drill out without wrecking either the panel or the mount

I have exactly this kind of mount in my panel. It originally had a jlw mounted but I switched to a ls-56. The only option to mount was the vf plate. It fits, but because of the distance to the panel, the stick is pretty short on the top.

I don't see how a jlf fits on these.

This is a sanwa jlf without a plate:

So they're supposed to be mounted without a plate?

It depends on how the panel has been designed. You can buy the JLF with no plate, flat plate, or cranked plate

I know. But with the mounting system that you use, there is no stick that would fit flush with the cp.?

It isn't meant to. I copied my design straight from a genuine Sega HOT2005 panel. Without the 6mm offset from the panel the stick would be too long

Right now the sticks shaft (control panel top to ball bottom) is roundabout 23mm. Does that sound correct? On my Naomi they sit flush.

Between 25 and 23mm is good
