Don't laugh, but this only cost me $2.43 at Ace Hardware....lol

Took our cat scratching post that the cat never used...turned it upside down, used some self-tapping wood screws to secure the joystick base plate to what was the base of the cat scratch post. Then drilled a hole in the center of a 12 x 12 piece of plywood and screwed the top of the post into it and secured it with a 7/16 nut. Don't forget, to remove the cap off of the top of the post..it easily screws off resulting in a 7/16 bolt showing.

Hi Mondaysoff.
I was very impressed with your design. Just purchased the screwfix pipe, fittings, and the extension tube. I'll upload pics when my construction is completed. Hope it works out just like yours.
Best regards
Geoff.

Me too - thanks Rosco! I used your plans from this thread - as-is for the Throttle, but without the slanted mount for the Joystick - I made it flat as in your original since the slant made no sense to me. Works out that the joystick is low enough to slide forward under the desk - works great.

Not a super skilled woodworker here so I unintentionally made the joystick rails a little narrow at the front with the wonderful side effect that you can pull the joystick out until it jams snugly - in exactly the correct spot - with no wiggle whatsoever. I would try to aim for that result if anyone else is thinking of making one. I used left over hardwood flooring for the rails - very strong. In the photo of the underside, the joystick is in the "stowed" position.

Having said all that, using an extension would probably be a better way to go IMHO. The TM HOTAS is new to me and my arm/wrist is sure getting a workout - but as I have read - you do get used to it and I am not having any issues controlling the Hog.
