Bus Bars

As I’ve been going through the Fast Pinball hardware documentation, I’ve noticed there are a lot of ground connections all over the place. Since everything from the wall power to the multiple power supplies to the individual parts in the machine will have a common ground, I’m going to make some bus bars out of aluminum, with drilled and tapped holes that I can use to attach leads. I can distribute these to a few places inside the table to  make trips back to ground shorter where possible. I may do the same thing with the 48v power, which needs to be wired to each coil directly after the power supply’s fused output.
