Re: My workshop

That's quite the healing bench you have there Exxos. Properly laid out with random decorations such as an effin' huge heatsink on the top of compoent drawers. Top quality stuff. Maybe there should be a "Forumites Dives" thread where peeps can post random pics of their workspace :idea:

Could frequency be a part of it? As in charge and discharge frequency messing with the dielectric over time if the rated voltage is exceeded for prolonged periods at the limit of its designed abilities? And getting bum raped for the privilege of testing.

Re: Joystick cloning

Though for me I need something which is small and fits easily in my hand. I have one of these kicking around, it's not in the greatest shape externally, but you can have it for nowt to try.
