2014-11-24 (M) Arduino Laser Tag

Parts for the vest unit were arranged. The terminals strip was replaced with a model which has quick-disconnect terminals as well as screw terminals. 16AWG (American Wire Gauge) wires with quick-disconnect ends were made with a terminal crimper. A scratch awl marked the hole locations for the terminals strip and enclosure. Short wood screws held the components in place. A small notch was cut from the back of the enclosure to allow wires to pass from the enclosure to the terminal strip. 2 1/2" (65mm) countersunk bolts were inserted through the wood platform and tightened to the surface. Additional nuts suspended a polycarbonate sheet above the enclosure, terminal strip, and battery.
