1) How does everyone build their circuit cards and why do you pick your method?(eyelets, turret lugs, nails)
For experimenting I like terminal strips and go totally P-P. For really building an original design I think turrets are best.
2) What order do you typically install things in the chassis in? (sockets and heater wire, xformers, etc.)
#1 is ground wire (if Fender that is) to chassis. I mount the trannies first and build the power (AC) section and then the eyelet card, sockets, then the pots/jacks/etc. Heater wire is probably last for me.
I think this is right.. I never really thought about it. Just be sure you have test fit everything and have all your holes punched/drilled just right before starting to assemble! Measure twice, cut once and all the usual rot.
