Circuit boards and parts had all arrived so one was constructed. First, a test fit was done with the components to make sure they all fit. If something had been printed to the wrong scale or the wrong part had been used, it wouldn't have fit. Fortunately, everything fit so there was no need to order new parts or redesign the circuit board to fit the existing parts.

Parts needed to be soldered on in a particular order or they would not fit. This was a matter of convenience and a matter of necessity. It would have been impossible to add the Teensy socket if the auxiliary socket had been installed first. It would have been cramped to install the encoders after the Teensy socket. This was partially due to mounting components on both sides of the board.
