Tubelab Simple SE Reverse Board Template

In an effort to make things easier during my final installation and any future troubleshooting, I flipped the board template (version 1) and also a greyscale photo of my version 2 board and then re-flipped the labels of each component individually, to make it far more readable. Having this reference to be able to "see through" to the top of the board will be very handy, methinks. The only labels that I didn't flip back are the numbers of each terminal block and each socket pin. They are simply too small to mess with in the software and they are readable enough in "flipped" format.

Posting them up here in case anyone else might find them useful.

This is great, I can really see it being helpful. Thank you for sharing

You're welcome.

I imagined myself trying to wire everything up to the terminal blocks with the board upside down and no labels - trying to "flip" everything over in my mind and screwing it up. This way I can be methodical and precise, which causes me much less stress. :) I know George has wiring diagrams for an inverted/flipped (under the chassis) board but they only cover limited scenarios. That's not a complaint, just an observation - I do believe that we shouldn't be spoon-fed everything.
 
You can also use the bottom layer Gerber file for this. It's not hard to read the flipped component designators.

I didn't get anything except a board in the mail, so no Gerber files, no templates, etc. for me. I had to come here just to dig up the template, which is not even the same version as my board. I've seen people mention a CD. I guess it is no longer included.
