    Thanks for sharing Rudolph :)
    I'm always interested in seeing how people deal with the detail of builds, as I'm going to make spinners also.

    Those junction boxes are great and easy to use.


    1 bolt through both and 2 small screws to stop them moving is another way of doing it. I kept the wires on the outside of the junction boxes to make easier repairs and reduce pressure on the strip solder pads.


    Yours do look very neat and tidy. Nice job
