The metal dome contacts in most Atari 2600 / 8 bit computer joysticks will go flat with decades of normal use, or boards need contacts cleaned etc you all know the potential controller issues. Course the darn things are taped down, so cleaning or replacing them can be tricky and a week later the damn things move around a little and your back to square 1.  

I am making is a drop in replacement circuit board that uses tactile switches and does not require trimming / cutting / filing of the original plastics, it will fit in CX-40 Atari brand joysticks

NOT the older CX-10 models with the black plastic plate and springs!

 I am using ultra low profile C&K tactile switches that match the depth of the original snap dome contacts (about 0.55mm), that are soldered in to place (no sliding contacts) and are rated for 1,000,000 cycles (MTBF) and only require a phillips head screw driver to install


And they make a little clicky sound

Awesome upgrade for an original CX-40 joystick
Friday, May 8, 2020
Osgeld's boards are a perfect solution to getting more responsiveness and years of use out of a CX-40, and are a cinch to install. There is a barely perceptible click to the tactile switches, but I appreciate and prefer the added feedback. If you associate the soft feeling of an original CX-40 with authentic gameplay of the late 70's/early 80s, you might rather look into replacing the worn out dome switches on your original board, instead, but I'm very pleased with Osgeld's replacement PCB.
