Terminal Strip / Terminal Lug Help

Postby claytushaywood » 29 Apr 2010, 22:10

Ive been contemplating building the austin treble blaster thanks to RG keen. I am however very concerned with the amount of information available with this procedure. I am pretty noob, but wouldnt you run the risk of having components short out on each other when soldering to a terminal strip?

Ive been searching the web trying to find the answer to this question. Can anyone just point me in the right direction?

Thanks much!

Not really....

check out rg keens austin treble blaster here http://www.geofex.com/Article_Folders/Rangemaster/drm.htm

it is a pedal built using one terminal strip with the components all over the place.

Wouldnt the leads from components short out if they're touching each other? Do I have to put this together so they are all spaced out so the leads dont touch any thing else?
