■ FIGURE 8.
Solder all connections using Figure
8’s wire color code. This can be done
quickly by putting some solder on the
tip of the RCA jack center electrode and
sweating each wire to the tip electrode.
The black and tan wires go to solder
lugs 5 and 6.
Glue the copper wire clamp to the
inside of the box. This is done by placing
a C clamp tight against the outside of the
box and cable, and then pushing the 1/2
inch pigtail down to the bottom of the
box so that it won’t interfere with the
cover. Glue all around the copper wire
clamp with Amazing GOOP® glue. Prop
the box up so that the glue at the copper
wire clamp does not run out of the box.
GOOP needs at least 12 hours to cure.
Next, place 3/8” press-on numbers 1 to
10 as shown in Photo 7.
The 12-conductor wire is 16 feet, eight inches long
with four inches of outer sleeving removed. If the cable
is much longer than 16 ft, it may not fit in the storage
Remove 1/4 inch of insulation from each wire. Tin
each wire. Now feed the cable through the 9/32 inch hole
until the brown wire easily reaches jack 1. To keep the
cable from twisting inside the box and coming out of the
end hole during use, make a clamp (on the inside of the
box) by wrapping three turns of #14 bare copper wire
around the cable. Twist the ends so that the bare wire
tightens around the cable. Clip the pigtail to about
Connecting the 12-Conductor
Cable to the Quiz Box
From the storage compartment, pass the 12-conductor
cable through the 9/32 inch hole in the divider of the quiz
box (left bottom) as shown in Photo 6. Remove six inches
of the outer sleeving. Remove 1/4 inch of insulation from
each wire. Tin each wire in preparation for sweating it to
the PCB front panel. Position the front panel and PCB as
shown in Photo 6. The toggle and reset switches will be at
the back of the quiz box near the hinges.
At Figure 9, look at the lowerleft hand corner. Locate
the wire marked as brown. Sweat the end of the brown
