Hints and tips – tidying wiring

My hints and tips are probably things other club members have been doing for years.  So you can all have a laugh at my expense as to how slow I am!

I have never been good at tidy wiring.  Even a simple board ends up looking like a plate of technicolour spaghetti, due to the range of sources of wire used.  I’m trying to do better this time around.  And I’ve found a hot glue gun a useful tool for wiring.  Hot glue is of course also very useful for scenic work, and if you are Iain Rice, you claim to build baseboards with the stuff.  But a spot of hot glue is ideal for fixing wires in place under the baseboard.  This is best done as the wiring goes into place, so it always looks tidy, and there are no festoons of wire like misplaced Christmas streamers…..
