    I have some questions about wire wrapping:


    A) Can someone direct me to a web page or book that shows photos on how
    to wire daisy chains, make firm connections to posts, and organize wire
    bundles for optimal space?

    I've read how to do these but could use some photographic references.



    B) My wire wrapped boards look cluttered and messy. I could use a good
    strategy for the most efficient placement of the wire wrap sockets.



    Thanks.

    I wire wrap because I'm not allowed to solder yet.



    Thanks for the responses but I'm still looking for some photos of the
    step by step wire wrap process.



    Again, thanks.

    Bummer. If you don't solder the ground pins of the sockets
    to the ground plane of the board, you could end up with a noisy mess.
    Here's an old trick on doing daisy chains:

    Before you close that page,
    click the Proportional font link at the top of the page
    or your next Google page view will be monospaced.

    If you mean by old school, that it is not used anymore, then you are wrong.
    If rather you mean, that as "Sly and the Family Stone" is old school R&B,
    but still very relevant and played and danced to in many venues, then you
    are correct.

    I take it you don't do telecommunications.

    Are you claiming that you are in telecomm and haven't used wire wrap in
    thirty years? If so, I simply don't believe you.
