I think the holes for the two way waterboard switch base are the wrong orientation and the keyway on the base of the stem is rotated as well.

Now a 2 way base would only work up and down, and the switch would be rotated vertically

Thank you, fixed the keyway.

you should adapt your button holes to work with my switches! https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3452944

Hotas & FlightSim POV/Hat Switches - 2 ways, 3 ways, 4 ways! Tons of variations of switch tops! (INCLUDES SOURCE SKETCHUP FILES)

Just leave out the top and extend the stems they will work.

It may be better to build the bases into the side panel itself and then use the tops to retain the switches, that way you don't need to modify the stem lengths. Unfortunately I used fucking finger painting CAD (sketchup) so I don't have fusion files of the bases you could intergrate, but they aren't super complicated to just reverse engineer the stl dimensions.

On my super hornet throttle I have all the hat switches sit very proud with a round base. (can be seen on the pyramid switch)

I don't know if the F-14 grip is the same way. Also I think my washboard switch (STEM_2WAY_ROCKER_5_WASHBOARD.stl) is too wide to fit inside the vertical switch protectors, I just eyeballed almost all the switch dimensions so I must have guessed to large

The main drawback of that though is the panel itself then restricts the kind of switch base, (2 way, 3 way, 4 way 8 way pov etc)

I have reworked your switches and stems, if you would like me to post a remix let me know. P.S. I reworked the washboard as well.

Seems the real steel also sits proud, but with a bevelled black base and engraved labels. https://thumbs.worthpoint.com/wpimages/images/images1/1/0118/20/1_264e16a6cd36d619f31b05d85724b8a1.jpg

That's exactly what I did! ;) I did have to extend the stem a little bit. Cool switches by the way!
