Re: Small Power Distribution Center.

Looks like a nice distribution box.  If you would like another take on the idea see (down the page) :

I've made a couple of these and have been very satisfied with them.  I make the traces in the PCB using a burr in a Dremel drill press.  I was surprised to find that the simple type-F connectors do make good fuse sockets.

While attending the West Libery hamfest a coupla weeks ago, a fello qrper came
by my table and showed me this very nice little power distribution box
which offered APPs as well as screw terminal options. I skootched on down to
the vendor and gobbled one up. It went together in about a half hour this aft,
and now resides on the desktop. It has 4 outputs, each one is fused with an LED
indicator to indicate a blown fuse, and is mounted in at neat little plastic
electrical box - vy cool.

It's a nice little kit and is offered by the Radio Farm, N0MA, a
club/association located near Cedar Rapids, IA. Usual disclaimers apply.
