  6. I have a Seimitsu LS32-02 joystick in my arcade console (printed on the pcb). On your website you only have LS32-01. My LS32-02 has 2 "pins" in each corner of the pcb, and the photo of the LS32-01 on your site only shows 1 pin in each corner. Here is a reference to my stick design ... https://support.focusattack.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005204703-Adjusting-the-Seimitsu-LS-32-Subguide What is the difference if you know? Thanks
