OHN14 On-Site Stick Modding


OzHadou is continuously seeking ways to expand the appeal of the OzHadou Nationals to all corners of the fighting game community. For OHN14 we’re pleased to announce that Tekken 7 competitor Hayden (Blankaex) will be offering on-site arcade stick modifications exclusively to competitor pass holders.

Hit the jump for Hayden’s summary of what he’ll be offering. Note that Hayden will be charging people on a case-by-case basis and estimates that most work can be done for $10-$20 provided you BYO parts. There’s about 1 week left to register for OHN14, including sign-ups for official and DIY tournaments, so make sure you get in before it’s too late.

Hey, I’m Hayden/Blankaex. I’ll be offering arcade stick modding services at OHN this year.


I’ll be able to do most jobs at the venue. This includes:

  • PS4 compatibility conversion
  • Installing a new joystick
  • Installing custom artwork & plexiglass
  • Joystick lubrication
  • Installing new buttons
  • Swapping balltops/battops

However, I won’t be able to do any jobs that require soldering and the use of other power tools at the venue due to safety reasons – you’ll have to get in touch with me to arrange something another time. The same holds true for other large/custom jobs.

Where to Purchase Parts

I’ll only be providing tools and services, so you’ll need to provide the necessary parts for everything except lubrication. You can purchase parts here:

Personally, I recommend the Sanwa JLF as my Japanese stick of choice, and the Crown 307 if you prefer a Korean stick. For buttons, both Sanwa and Seimitsu buttons are good. If you have any concerns about compatibility issues, feel free to contact me and I’ll try to help.
