The mounting and the wiring of small components can be simplified and made extremely appealing in appearance by employing the hint shown in Fig. 1. The length of No. 16 tinned wire which runs between center posts of each pair of miniature sockets can be used for both support and connection at the ground ends of resistors, capacitors, etc. Filament and other power wiring follows the chassis as usual. Remember to ground the center post of each socket to the nearest convenient point.
