Turn your spinner into a steering wheel

Postby menace » Thu Sep 27, 2018 5:39 am

I have a ultimarc spinner on my next mame control panel with an arkanoid knob--I thought it would be fun to have a steering wheel I could just press on and pull off when not in use. Thanks to thingiverse, I came up with this:

The wheel is 135mm in dia. and the receiving "cup" has an inside dia. of 39.7mm. Glue the two together and bingo--swappable mini steering wheel.

Cool, I've seen some commercial wheels for spinners as well. I think I've even seen a few smaller mame (bartops maybe) where the spinner based wheels where used. I checked your thingverse link and found on the page a link to a cool tool to print to help hold wires when soldering! Printing that now. :)

Yup - going to the Silverball swap, but no thanks - it's a cool idea, but I use heat shrink on all cables now :D
