Japanese Arcade Buttons

The buttons used in the Japanese sit down cabs are much different from the ones used in US cabs.

This is a side view of a Japanese arcade button.
The microswitch is built into the button. These microswitches use a smaller quick connect than the US buttons.
The standard US arcade buttons are much larger, due (I think) to the fact that alot of the US cab control panels are made out of wood instead of metal.
This is a Candy control panel. One of the candy buttons has been removed and a US button added. It works fine as long as you don't have any real depth limitations.
