Hi Martin,

Good to see you here! I hope you are doing well!
Hi Squonk42 !
Yes, I'm doing well ! Thanks !
I'm here since the beginning of the forum, even a bit before on the old arduino thread, but I didn't post frequently recently, I'm too busy building my new house after having sell my previous one...

My wire-wrap days ended with my 30 month 'career' with Burroughs ("L" series.) If I never see a wire-wrap backplane again it will be too soon!
:lol:
BTW, I've edit my post, it wasn't 100 feet but 1000 ... :ugeek:

... and I can appreciate how long 305 meters of silver plated wire really is when doing wire wrap connections.
(I could be mistsken, but I remember that the wire was sterling silver at the time)

I had to wire wrap prototype boards at Uni, and that was just a few - never again!

Yep, a real P.I.T.A. (now it would be "A" == aging fingers as I no longer own automated wirewrap tool ... just those little screw-driver sized things!)

i remember those, btw nylon carpets and the bits of stripped off insulation form an almost impossible to clear off tangle without patience, pliers and an excess of time.
i scrounged a air powdered wire wrap gun, compressor tank good for maybe 5 wraps before firing the motor up.
