wiring guide fun
« on: January 10, 2010, 09:57:06 PM »
When I first started I was always looking for somebody's wiring guide to help me design mine.  There were a few out there, and thought I'd add mine for future people.  Please don't rely on this though, only use it for reference, as I'm a newb at all this.  Anyway, complicated enough?

Looks good.  What program did you use to draw it?

I'd imagine you could pretty much use any package to draw it.  I used Photoshop.  All the lines are just the paint brush;)

Nice idea and much better than the wiring diags I did for my Bridgeport4 or 5 years ago LOL

I need to get  the Beavers diags drawn up for my own reference but think I will go ladder style this time.

Thanks for sharing.

You kidding? The wiring by far.  If you took the soldering out of the equation, then it took about the same time though;)

Soldering is not good . should use crimp ferrels.

Sorry Ed but don't agree with this one in general, however the lead free stuff is rubbish (which is perhaps why the 60/40 tin/lead is still used for military equipment in the UK) and crimps would be better if you can't use 60/40.

Nice diagram Barry (I have pasted a small copy of my diagram on the inside of my control box door for reference).

I have plenty of lead solder :)

OpenOffice is very good for doing layouts, all the way up to fairly decent technical drawings.
