:) A little mod for your old mouse :)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So ya. if you are like all of us you have one of those old minces that you don't use because they are so ugly.
But they are still working well !

if you have a mouse and you don't like its style you can just paint them to look good !!

let me introduce you to my project. How is only a sort of walk trough because that is an experimentation
so i am not responsible if you break your 300$ mouse.


This is the beast , an old Microsoft mouse, i don't care about the specification : It works and it is ugly.



it is old and dirty


more sexy shoot of the beauty


Ok now guys what you need for this project.

1.the mice (obviously)

2.sandpaper (don't know the exact numbers but something very fine (pictures coming) ))

3.paint (any color )

4. screwdriver (prepare different ones because you never know what kind of screw hides inside your mouse)


that it for now subscribe for the more pictures

yes, I have the same bad experience (broke the clippings). I think over the years the softener in the plastic is almost gone.
I doubt that I can successfully glue it. If you are able to do it and it works, please share it.

That is a Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical. It is not just another crap mouse. That mouse is awesome. The specification might not be incredible, but at the same time, it has a good lift off distance, no prediction, no acceleration etc. The only thing that hurts this mouse (imo) is the reasonably low max perfect tracking speed. Which is just 1 m/s , and around 1.5 m/s when you overclock to 500Hz or more. Use it and be proud. Cool project !

Nice one! Hopefully it gets through nicely. Check out my mouse mod too, I did it with a carbon look decal.
