buss box for all your 12-volt goodies

Like so many other things in ham radio, you can spend $50-$100 for it, or make it yourself for less than $10. This DC buss distribution box uses two sets of 30-amp banana jacks, and four sets of 15-amp banana jacks.

The feed wire is #10 stranded, soldered between the 30-amp jacks. The buss wire is #14. The box is from
an old laptop computer power supply. It has a steel body and a plastic top - perfect for this application.
