yep, no doubt your choice of patterns has to do with habit at your day job and favorite libraries for that where better tools/reflow are more easily accessed.

also I meant rectifier above, not inductor, I had inductance on the brain. the 1210 cap regulator reference bypass and the bridge on the power supply boards I found the most challenging, as its compounded by the direct thermal connection to the solid ground and power planes.

how profoundly does the addition of thermal relief effect impedance at the currents/slewrate we are talking about? I ask this not just for this board, but the PCBs i'm currently working on use solid planes for everything including input and output. they will be reflowed most likely so not such a big deal, but just for curiosity.

I figured out this darn switch within my 'wire' is causing me grief.

It's a Defond 12A 115vac, it's wired up between iec inlet and my transformer.

This is how I wired up the switch...

Click the image to open in full size.

I guess I should ground it to the case.

Is that the wiring that did not work? Was the bulb constantly lit regardless the switch position? If it was, you were using wrong pair of pins on the switch. Try the center pin and the one on the other side.

There could also be a safety issue with the wiring. You're supposed to put a switch following the Live terminal of the IEC socket, but it seemed in the diagram the switch is on the Neutral.

The ground pin of the IEC socket should be wired to the chassis.

The switch worked (neon bulb) lit when I pushed the rocker up (and off when down).

Just wasn't getting any ac to my transformer from the switch.

I guess I should be using neutral (black) to the switch.
