    It's wire I had left over from making Y leads for my large electric RC Helis, I though it would be good to use as I could strip sections of outer off, push it over the pin and then flood with solder. Then cover the soldered bit with hot glue to insulate....

    Missed that first time round, nice idea looks cool.

    Not sure on Clive and the chocblock, I guess he's right but what to do...

    I guess you need somthing of a busbar, mini consumer unit? Or is that ott?

    These seem ok and you would get the fuses for the drives (if you want them) you would need two of them fuse in the +ve and bridge the -ve solid (no fuse) cheapo choc blocks will melt if the screws come loose. Clive

    ps the others with the led in would be no good as you will be running 70V ish.

    How about soldering the 1 wire from the caps directly to 3 smaller wires and connecting them to din terminals.



    Then connecting from there to MCB's before going to the drivers?
