I am currently working on layout, circuit mods etc., and cannot decide wether to use .15" pitch Veroboard for the building of the circuit or the more traditional tag board.
With the Veroboard, I am thinking of cutting holes into the Veroboard so that the tube sockets, which will be mounted on the top plate, will protrude through each hole, and all associated components will then be soldered around each tube with short link wires connecting to the tube socket pins.
With the tag boards, I would probably mount them between each row of tubes, then soldering the associated components on the tag board and again using short link wires to connect to the tube socket pins.
My main worry at this stage is interference/hum etc., would using a Verboard be more prone to interference caused by components being too close together?
I could use tracks on the Veroboard as 'grounding' tracks, running 0V on them and placing them in such a manner so these would run under and around components.
A drawback with Veroboard is that mistakes would/could be easier to make, I would have to cut tracks etc. and run link wires, any of those out of place or missing could cause hours of frustrating fault finding.
Tag boards on the other hand are fairly straight forward, or lets say more so than Veroboard, and it is easier to keep track of the circuit as components are added etc.
Your thoughts and comments are very much appreciated, thank you.
