At this point you can start to stuff the main PCB. It’s a really good idea to stuff the power section of the board first and also hoookup the power transformer so that you can test your power rails and make sure you don’t blow the board. This will also save some heartache later on if things don’t work and you have to start troubleshooting……
First I hookup the power transformer:
Next I stuff the power section of the PCB ONLY:
Then once you have checked your power rails, you can stuff the rest of the board:
….and then mount the PCB in the chassis:
Next will be the ratio board and main hookup….
