I've been reading all the recommended literature and 'lurking' a while, long enough to try my luck with building a cam..
Something that seems to not jump out at me is 'what guage wire should be used' while making all these connections. Thanks and I look forward to hopefully providing some tips to be a useful member! cya
Get the narrowest guage of STRANDED wire you can get. I use either 22 or 24 guage. The small guage wire and it being stranded makes it much more flexible. If you use solid wire it will be more prone to breaking at the solder connections.
Welcome Rutnduck. I use (from a tip learned here, Jesse I think), computer mouse cord wires. I strip the cable and you would not believe they can get 4-6 wires in that dang small of cable. It is real flexable which id good and I have had real goodluck with that. Good luck. MC.
I'm in Raleigh....mouse cable should be readily available to me...(I'm a big blue (ibm) survivor)...thanks for the welcome and tips! I'll be sure post any pics....
Arrowhead....I saw a big buck (at least a 160) out where the old oak tree used to be on old man smith's road!
