I still need:
MDF cut to size
to dig out my drill
possibly a simple, ten digital input USB gamepad
a terminal strip
some kind of project enclosure
The buttons I've found are not what I will be using on my next stick, I just want to get something together that works before ruining some really nice, vintage parts. I may need to order my joystick online, which from what I've seen, might be a bit difficult or a little more expensive than what I wanted.
to do by Saturday:
figure out which controller I'm going to be using
It's kinda rainy out this week so I'll save the legwork for next week. I've never done anything involving electronics before so it might take me longer than it would if I were familiar with the basic parts and processes that I'll be using.
