    Default Clear Arcade Buttons

    i saw the new MF buttons and went on a search for even better ones.

    I just did some searching...

    I found nothing that would indicate how long they are. Although if you could find the name of the manufacturer and check their website, I'm sure you would find a detailed schematic.

    You could even get a small batch of them and give it a shot. 24mm refers to the diameter of the mounting hole, so these fit the hole... just may not be the same length to fit in the midifighter's terminals.

    actually, I think I just found it's schematic after all. and I'm pretty sure it's gonna be .4 mm shorter than the Sanwa OSBF-24 which is what the midi Fighter uses.

    That should still be long enough to fit with out much of a problem, I'd bet.

    buy one or two to test them out before getting all 16 ... make sure the snap is acceptable. There are some arcade buttons that suck.

    Sure you can make them work. It may involved manufacturing a new faceplate, or running leads to your buttons. I'm positive it can be done though.

    maybe you could get the faceplate mounting stems shortened by 4mm?

    I know Sanwa have recently brought out clear 30mm buttons. Don't know if they are planning 24mm though.
