Question for Joe F.
Using your "poor-man's jig" using CV turnouts, I ran into a problem, and it's due to laziness on my part. I broke one of my PC throwbars so that I don't really have enough to attach a wire for my Wolfgang-method operable switchstand.
SO the plan is to rip it out and re-solder a new one, but my question is really this: do you find the thinner PC throwbar is strong enough to handle a hole pin-vised through it, and any side tension it may encounter, without breaking at the point? Solder joints don't pivot, after all, and I am considering just using some thick plastic and Proto:87 hooked ultimate throwbars.
