    I got ipac2 and the optipac and the Happ 3" trackball at Ultimarc. the buttons and the 3  joysticks (the trigger one is just a joystick that hacked the handle) at Starburst coin machine in Canada. total about cost about $350 the ball was high cost.I also bought the spintrak at ultimarc but could not get it to work with the optipac, so I converted a mouse to use as a spinner.   click on the parts section.

    Thanks so much, both of those sites were great.  I've seen some other arcade supplier sites, but the buttons at Ultimarc look a lot nicer than most I've seen.
