Do you have any photos of your project you could upload? It may help me to see them.

There must be a trick to using the Wago connectors.
I can push on the levers until they break and they won't budge.
What am I missing?

I'll other that but the Fulson pcb must be investigated because getting sparks is a safety risk

You push the lever with a finger or a screwdriver and the you insert the wire.

1 of 2 finished. I hope my solder joints look okay. I can't alway's get the solder to flow from the bottom to the top of the pcb. Not sure if that's an issue or not. All the joints are solid but some look dull to me.

I see some bad joints in the second picture. Don't be afraid to heat up the soldering points. Use two soldering irons if you have. Personally I use a 135 W iron.

Thanks, I thought so. The joints closest to the edge. I'll redo them.
If you use a 135w iron then I should be able to crank up my Hakko station to 750F.

I've been worried about frying parts with it that high. On some of the rectifiers I tried using an alligator clip/solder braid as a heat sink on the top side of the pcb.
Do I need to use it .

I'm getting closer.

DCT-03 feeding 3 - Fo-Felix power conditioners.
Since the Fo-Felix need nylon washers above and below the pcb I did the same with the DCT03.

If this doesn't look right please let me know.
