When using smaller 24mm arcade buttons, it can be an exercise in frustration when using 3/4″ material.  The material of choice for most arcade cabinets. The problem is that the 24mm buttons are just not quite long enough to allow the bottom nut to screw on in some of these cases.  There’s good news though.  It is super easy to solve for this problem, by backboring the button holes!  Watch this video to see how simple it really is.

    Mike — another solution I’ve had success with on my recent arcade build (if you don’t want to backbore) is to just flip the plastic nut around backwards which will give you enough thread to lock the Sanwa button in place.
