Hey Mike,
Thatís a trace cut. You need to drill or cut the trace so the signal stops there. I usually use a drill bit and hand twist it until all traces of copper are gone. Then test with my multi meters after to be sure.

Yep, they will end up looking like this:



I recommend using a DMM on continuity setting just to make 100% sure you've cut all the copper, and there is no connection left (I've had that kick my ass in trouble shooting before)

Somnif,

I have gone off the deep end.

I thought I had some Vero or Strip board around here but I canít seem to find it with the move.

So, I am hand wiring my own circuit board or grid. Whatever you call this thing that Iím doing.

If I can just take whatís in my minds eye And translate it into something physical itís gonna be pretty cool.

Iím taking pictures I go to document build.

Weíll see what shakes out a couple days.

Could always go full-on insane and wire up the circuit point-to-point!

That is definitely the coolest thing I have seen in at least a year. OK so Mine is not going to be that cool, but  for a first effort I think itís gonna be pretty bad ass.

We will know pretty soon whether or not Iím able to pull this off. Once again, I canít thank you guys enough for your help. Iím glad that Iím finally slowing down and trying to build my knowledge base, because that is what I really lack.

 Doing stuff like this and going off on a tangent I find that I always learn a great deal.
