You don't need to go to all that trouble. Do a search for 'ceramic grease' (it's a type of plastic lubricant), or check for some on ebay. If you put some on the inside of the analogue stick it'll slow down the wear to an unnoticeable level. Then you don't have to worry about using third party sticks which often aren't as sensitive as the nintendo ones.

Mmmonkey.co.uk have all the info you need if you're gonna try this out.

I would do that if I had a relatively new N64 controller, but unfortunately I don't. This means that if I did lubricate my joystick (NOTHING SUSS :blink: ) it would stay somewhat loose, so there is no point in doing that. If Nintendo of Australia sold N64 controllers on their web site (why does the US always get what we don't?) I would buy one in a heartbeat. Then I could apply some ceramic grease to the joystick every year or so and have a perfect controller for years! But that will probably never happen.....
