Hi Steve -- I am very impressed with your ingenuity in creating these jigs -- your ideas are going to make my life so much easier when I build my own 8x8x8 cube (as soon as I clear some of my other projects out of the way :-)

@Steve: ...I also tried some 0.7mm diameter stainless steel dress-making pins...

Is this another hobby we know nothing about? Remind me again, what's the name of that club you go to at the weekends? LOL

I LOVE your videos -- I know how much time creating this sort of thing takes, so I really appreciate all the effort you've put into them -- as far as I am concerned they are invaluable when it comes to really understanding the nitty-gritty construction techniques you talk about in your columns.

Thanks for the kind comments. Maybe I can help with some ideas for your cube being you are using different LED's to me.

You can tell me -- I won't say a word to anyone -- my lips are sealed (apart from when there's a beer in the offing)

Thanks Max and yes they do take a lot of effort to make, but worth it.

I second Max's opinion. I tried to make a quick one and the result was putrid so I really admire your results. Notwithstanding that, the result is on You Tube since I needed it to support a blog. I will have a to remake that in the future into a sort of training/marketing video (maybe two videos). Do you offer your services?

Oh and I reckon you could find a career in making test jigs- they seem to be of professional quailty with a great deal of insight and innovation.

I too am thoroughly impressed!  I've done a lot of "flywire" construction without the benefit of fixtures such as you have done, and your results look exceptionally workman-like and worthy of display (pun intended....).  This design will when completed produce a fine product, with a substance and ruggedness that will ensure its long- term survival (maybe even attacks by toddlers!).   The videos have been very well done, and explain the entire process in sufficient detail to enable others to reproduce it.  This last point is something I have spent a large part of my career trying to get other engineers to understand how important clear, complete, and cogent DOCUMENTATION is!  Bravo!
