Logitech Scroll Wheel Upgrade to Titanium

When you have a quick look at the mouse above you might not see anything special but with a closer look you will notice that the scroll wheel is not stock. Rhett sent in some pictures of his Logitech Scroll Wheel that he Upgrade to Titanium, he made the upgrade after the original wheel changed color and the internal rubber parts started to fall apart.

“Rather than running out and buying a new mouse, I stripped it down and removed the wheel to give it a clean. The rubber basically fell apart, so I thought screw it I’m going to change it to titanium. One of the many perks of being in the ring business is access to offcuts of titanium rings. I happened to have an offcut that was the perfect width to fit the wheel, and a slim 1mm in thickness. I ground the existing wheel down enough for the titanium piece to fit snugly over it. “
