    Hello,
                  This might be a dumb question to ask?  I am getting ready to start building my VTA-ST-120 kit. And wanted to find out the best way to wrap or twist two-wire around each other? So they look nice and tight? I don't mean soldering them just putting one around the other. Thank's

    Fold a length of wire in half, put one end in an electric drill and hold the other end with pliers.  Run the drill until you get the amount of twist you want.  They will lose some amount of length when twisted so plan accordingly.

    BTW, you will love that amp!
