Introduction: Precision Analog Stick Extender AKA FPS Freek
For those of you who don't know what these are, or do, they are basically a device that gives you more range of motion in the joystick, allowing you to play at higher sensitivities in first person shooter games. Here is a description from the FPS Freek website:
By increasing the length of the analog sticks slightly, precision while aiming is improved dramatically. Your range of motion is increased by 40%, giving you the opportunity to make smaller adjustments and “snap” to targets much faster in first-person shooters. This affords you the luxury of turning up controller stick sensitivities to get the closest feel to a mouse possible on a console without an internal controller mod or cheat. The greater leverage offers you better control and less force—alleviating thumb-fatigue and adding more comfort to long gaming sessions. In short, this increased accuracy and decreased thumb-fatigue results in more kills and less deaths.
For this instructable, you will need:
1. An old controller with analog sticks (does not matter what kind, I used a PS2 paddle)
2. A dremel tool
3. Small rubber bands (I used orthodontic elastics, the ones used for braces)

Step 1: Obtain a Analog Stick From Another Controller
Take apart some other controller and take the analog stick out using whatever means necessary.
Step 2: Sand Down the Bottom
Using the dremel, sand the bottom of the stick where there is a little nub until it is flush.
Step 3: Sand Away the Sides of the Stick
Use dremel tool
Step 4: Cut 4 Notches in the Sides
Use a disk attachment
Cut at 90 degree angles from each other
Step 5: Attach It on Your Controller With Elastics
