    I'm trying to draw a layout for my dual 6L6 two channel high gain build.

    I'm using a few 8 lug terminal strips and need to know their dimensions so I can draw this thing up to scale and make sure I can get everything fitting in this chassis right.

    1. How long are the 8 lug terminal strips?
    2. How long are the 3 lug terminal strips?

    Straight from Chez Junque:

    I don't have 8 lugs close at hand but I have lots of 5s and some 3s.

    You can see an 8 would be 3" OAL with last lug to last lug at 2 5/8".

    3 lug is 1 1/8" OAL.

    The lugs are spaced 3/8" C-C. Bear in mind that if you use this style strip the two mounting lugs go straight to ground, you may lose 2 lugs per strip in some apps.
