I picked up an Apple 2 joystick that was having issues. One of the buttons didn't work, I was able to remedy that by putting in new switches. However, the pots also need to be cleaned/inspected. I prefer to do that by actually opening up the pots and cleaning the contacts and track, vs. blasting the entire thing with a can of contact cleaner. As contact cleaner also clears out any grease in there, and makes the pots feel too "loose".
But I can't figure out how to remove them from the X-Y actuator mechanism (for lack of a better term). Unless you have to disassemble the whole X-Y mechanism inside the box to some how get them off. I was hoping you could easily just pop them off from the outside.
Anyone know for sure how to get them off? Thanks!
