    I saw a place that rebuilds your Western joystick controller for $60.00. Was wondering if anyone has had this done. Was thinking of having one done for a spare.

    Normally you just replace the internal pc board.

    But if you know where that place is let us know, $60 is cheaper than the board.

    I found them on E-Bay under Western Plow controls. Their store name is Midwest Electronic Showdown. I am waiting to hear back from them to see what the rebuild entails, wheter they replace all the switches or just the defective ones.

    I talked to them last season, they replace all switches and repair any broken traces whatever those are. I still have one sitting here that needs to be sent out and repaired.
