Resistor Board - Part I

Now that my control panel is mostly done, I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to lay out the wiring inside to keep it tidy and organized. There are lots of individual circuits, so I decided to use a grid style PC board for the components, such as the bridge rectifiers and the resistors.

I realize that I could have probably cut down on the amount of resistors I used. However, I opted to keep a resistor for each individual circuit to keep the wiring as close as possible to my original plan. I’m sure there are several different ways this system could be wired, this is just one of them. I used my soldering iron to attach the components directly to the PC board. I will then eventually attach all my wiring to the back of the board to each appropriate component.
