This replacement hollow conversion shaft is compatible with the Sanwa JLF series of joysticks and is ideal for those customers who want to thread wire through the hollow shaft and add their own LED lighting for various arcade/fight stick modding projects.
This hollow conversion shaft for Sanwa JLF series of joysticks has a drilled body, which has the added benefit of being able to run a wire up through the shaft if you want to add a light effect or illuminate a translucent handle with hollow thread. The diameter of the hollow conversion shaft is exactly the same as the original shaft on the Sanwa JLF series of joysticks, so your Sanwa JLF joystick will not loose any performance with this hollow conversion shaft fitted.
This hollow conversion shaft is available to order in three different sizes:
Short Shaft: 60mm height from bottom of shaft to start of thread
Standard Shaft: 68mm height from bottom of shaft to start of thread
Extended Shaft: 78mm height from bottom of shaft to start of thread
* Available in three height options: Short Shaft, Standard Shaft and Extended Shaft
* Hollow shaft – allows illumination options for modding
* Same diameter as original shaft – no loss of performance

I found that by using a short shaft on my Hori RAP4 to play Street Fighter II: Hyper Fight, it is so much better than the standard size shaft. Because I love this 60mm short shaft so much, and wanted to buy something even smaller, I had to check out every other website that sells these shafts and that's when I stumbled upon the Paradise Arcade Shop website. They sell a JLF cocktail shaft that is a fraction smaller than this one. Unfortunately, I was unable to install it. No matter how much oil and grease I applied, I just could not get the pivot nor spring base to fit onto it.
Perfect for converting to a bat top without adding too much extra range of motion.
