Re: Eyelets with PCBs
Circuit boards in Dynaco equipment use crimped-in eyelets on the PCBs for flying lead connections. All the board stuffing components were installed in the conventional PCB-way. On the tube equipment boards, the eyelets were large enough to connect 3 or 4 solid #24 wires. I never had any problem with them, except that they were brass and weren't initially tinned. Once they were properly soldered (best achieved when they were new & shiny) they were reliable.
