Hi Jack,
it looks like you have up to date system. It might work fine with any commercially available joystick (e.g. Logitech). Original units are completely different and designed to work with old setups. 
Cheers,
Sergei (U of A)

> Hello Everyone- at Syracuse University, we a JEOL 8600 Superprobe.  We are having difficulties with the joystick, the stage gears like to slip (at times several mm) when moving the stage with the joystick.  Whenever we let the computer move/control the stage (i.e. overnight runs) we don't have a problem, so it seems likely that the joystick is the problem.  I was wondering if anyone knows were we could purchase either a new one, or a new used one?  The joystick has a male USB connection, which connects directly to the Dell computer (running Geller software).  We do have a joystick from a JEOL 733, but it has a male 15-pin D-sub connection, has anyone had experience with D-sub to USB converters? These cost only ~$20 on amazon.  Thanks very much for any help you can provide.
