Batch making legs

Posted by Alan on 31st August 2015 in 0n30, Alan's Railway |

Making the Jumpers

Posted by Alan on 24th August 2015 in 0n30, Alan's Railway |

After another long hiatus, and with the Seaboard Southern Show now only a few weeks away, I sat down this evening with a film on Amazon Prime, two rolls of cable, a bunch of banana plugs and sockets plus some chocolate blocks and proceeded to make up the jumper cables for connecting power to adjacent boards.
