Title: Splitting wires
Post by: shaiss on September 03, 2016, 02:15:15 pm
I have 1 open 12v rail coming of my PSU.  I'd like to use it for LEDs, fans, and some other small bits.  I could pigtail the cables but that would be ugly and probably a bad idea. 

So im trying to learn what's the best way to take one v+ wire and a gnd to a rail. Similar to what I do on my breadboards. 

Would a terminal block do this?   From what I read on Amazon didn't sound like it would.   

Any guidance on what this would be called and links would be greatly apprilicjsted!
