Looking for a thumbstick mouse
« on: January 18, 2015, 10:47:49 PM »
I am looking for a new thumbstick mouse like was used with a laptop. I used to be to find them but have not seen any lately.

It is a small device with just a thumbstick and 2 small buttons. It velcros onto the side of the laptop. Newer laptops all have either a built in thumbstick or touchpad. They probably made the addon go the way of the DODO bird (obsolete).

They work GREAT on a CNC controls that MUST use a mouse (Mach3/4)

Might be a great new/old idea for someone to reproduce ??   Maybe take the guts out of an analog mouse and replace the roller ball mechanism with a thumstick .

Just a thought, (;-) TP
