@tensecondsdown

Couldn't resist!  Attempted to draw the schematic of the TIM6 board in KiCad and think I have it right, but can you and others, if they so desire, see if it seems correct.  Don't want to proceed to next step if the attached schematic is wrong.

I've used a terminal screw strip, but that is not absolutely necessary.  The wires could be just soldered to the board as long as the hole diameter will accommodate your wire gauge sizes.  I did not include the Hall Effect Sensor, just it's attachment points.  For illustration purposes I have shown the LED as it could be mounted on the board itself or remotely if that is what you want.

Since you said you have components already, I may need you to provide some dimensions for the items you have when we get to the "footprint" part of the PCB layout.

Once you get to 10 posts we can switch to private messages (PM) and not have to bore folks with our back and forth bantering.

That looks good to me. I was planning on using a terminal screw strip so that works. The LED and hall effect are going to be remote mounted. As for dimensions, the terminal strip I have is 3.5 MM between the pins.  Everything else is the typical size. The diode pins are a little bigger at 1.25MM. The terminal strip itself is 33 mm long so if the board could be 36mm square. That it awesome, thank you very much

@tensecondsdown Why thank you kindly... sometimes we just need to scream at the sky and it is boring... and disruptive.

kiCAD will get it done .. probably the best clue is to set up the grid with the most usefull  dimensions.. What is pissing me off right now is getting the Libarys in the right place .. oh that and when I find the time to not be screaming at the sky... Love Mark

@mark-bolton Mark, I have helped a few guys with library issues, if you want we can start a new topic and see if we can resolve it.

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.
Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
My personal scorecard is now 1 PC hardware fix (circa 1982), 1 open source fix (at age 82), and 2 zero day bugs in a major OS.
