Construction for Snitzl - Control Panel
The Control Panel front for Snitzl is made from 2mm polycarbonate, trade name Lexan. This material is extremely tough and is used for bullet proofing armoured vehicles and tanks, its also really nice to machine, drill file etc. Cab Control, which dates back to the early 50's is the method used on Snitzl and is explained in many books. Connections are made by two D sockets mounted at the end of each board and looped through a tag strip with all wires connected.
Therefore, the control panel can be plugged into any baseboard, ideal when working on a single board.
