    Referencing the circuit above the unknown PT is a Ferguson PVD105, specs exist online so finding a suitable replacement isn't difficult not that one is required.

    I have written to Evacto about a turret board to replace the cracked and broken circuit board and once that is sorted I'll start ordering bits.

    Making a custom Turret board isn't that hard to do, although you do need some simple tools for installing the Turrets, last time I visited the Evatco website they had all the materials and tools in stock needed to make Turret boards, you could use the old board (it looks like a Fender-style eyelet board) as a guide, and then draw a layout on some paper, note that I have never in my whole life made a Turret board so I'm no expert, but I wouldn't mind learning how to make them myself.

    I'm entirely with you on this, if I can design and build a car I'm sure I can copy a simple cct board that I have in front of me

    It can't be that difficult, mind you I won't finish up with the rats nest that currently passes as P-P wiring

    Typically, the Turrets are usually spaced 3/8 inch apart, that's 1cm in metric units, so if you buy yourself a few A4 sized books of 1cm square graph paper, all you then have to do is just mark the positions of the Turrets on the graph paper with a dot (pencil them in first so you can easily erase any mistakes), yeah I agree, making a Turret board looks easy enough to do, it's just a bit time-consuming, but well worth it, components are easier to de-solder in the event one needs replacing.

    Looks like something from the 24 hours of Lemons ( sort of like the Shitbox Rally but on a circuit )
