Turret board

Summary
In electronics, turret boards were an early attempt at making circuits that were relatively rugged, producible, and serviceable in the days before printed circuit boards (PCBs). As this method was somewhat more expensive than conventional "point-to-point" wiring techniques, it was generally found in the more expensive components, such as professional, commercial, and military audio and test equipment. This is similar to cordwood construction. Turret boards consist of a thin (generally 1/8 inch) piece of insulating material drilled in pattern to match the electronic layout of a set of components. Each hole drilled will have a metal post (the turret) positioned in it. Electronic components are suspended between these turrets and soldered to them to create a complete circuit layout. Most of the military electronics used in WWII made use of this construction method, and Altec professional gear of similar vintage has the same construction. However, the underside of some turret bo
