Introduction

This fix is necessary for the owners of N64 controllers when the joystick becomes too loose over time. If the joystick of a controller is loose, game play becomes difficult. Conditions for this fix include: a flat surface, plenty of light, and a method for keeping track of individual components of the controller. Practice caution when using the knife in this fix.

Sadly, it is out of stock too frequently. I’d prefer fixing rather than replacing.

What is the epoxy substance called exactly? I tried searching online but results all come back for JB-Weld coldweld bonding products.
