MX510 + Wingman = WingmanMX!Foreword
Can't let go of your old trustee Logitech Wingman mouse? Neither can I. The reason for me to do this modifycation was because the ball system in my mouse stopped working. Next to that I couldn't find a single mouse with an equal shape as the wingman. I tried diffirent mices and they were all either to big, to heavy and/or to small. Plus most of them gave me like instant RSI while trying to use them for longer then 2 minutes.
Luckily I remembered seeing a wingman mod done before by Viftman. He succesfully modded an MS Intelli Explorer 3.0 into his wingman. So why this guide then? To keep it short; I screwed up the main print of the MS 3.0,that a friend gave me, with a too big soldering iron. I started doing that mod late in the evening and wanted to finnish it before I went to bed. Now I had a problem since the MS 3.0 was broken and I couldn't find a new one in The Netherlands anymore :'(. So I had to find a solution and I decided to buy a Logitech MX510 and take it slow this time...
Note: Credits go to Viftman for the original idea.
Onto the modding
First disassemble both mice. The screws of the MX510 can be found under the mouse skates. Cut out the middle part, where the laser of the MX510 fals in, out of the bottom of the MX510 and fit it into the bottom of the wingman like shown on the picture(s) to the right. I did it with a dremel. I glued both parts together with 2-component.
