Awesome upgrade!

These controllers make the game feel like the OG full scale machine. Replaced the junk controllers on Mortal Combat Wave 3 machine - going to replace my Pac_Man machine next. Cannot beat this upgrade for the price. Of note - there aren't any markers to reflect which way the joystick is oriented - had to use trial and error for up/down orientation. Also, in my case, had to use the OG mounting plates to have the joystick centered. An easy switch, but a heads up would have been nice. Cables were perfect and the entire process for 2 joysticks, including re-orienting (complete reinstall), took about 45 minutes - and I took my time. These controllers with the upgraded octagonal plates make this a fantastic machine and excellent game play.

Great product and customer service

Picked up the Genuine Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT 5 Pin Joystick For Arcade1Up. Had a bit of trouble with instal but DIY was quick to shoot me a solution and worked like a charm! As a result of the experience I purchased a lighted marquee kit from DIY and that two was awesome. Great products with great service. I’ll continue to purchase from DIY Retro Arcade!

Awesome service from DIY Retro Arcade

I ordered the Sanwa joystick for our Ms Pacman Arcade 1up machine. It got here quick and everything looked great out of the box. I needed some help installing the joystick and the guys helped me a bunch through email. I appreciate you guys very much and I will recommend DIY Retro Arcade to everyone I know.
