So for some strange reason I had a craving to play Power Stone. After a couple minutes of playing it with the standard controller I remembered that I had an 80 dollar Sega arcade stick sitting in my closet somewhere. So I decided to dig it up. After about 10 minutes I found it, but to my dismay I found something else. The dust shield on the stick was torn off as you can see
Now I figured this wouldn't be much of a problem at first, because I was just going to cover it up with something to prevent dust from getting into it, but as I started playing the jagged edges of the shield started scraping my index finger in a most painful way.
Anyone out there who has dealt with this problem and can offer some kind of solution? I know this is a longshot, but I couldn't really find a specific place to ask for help about arcade sticks anywhere else, and I'm desperate.
