Sam, I found this picture that Dave Hikel did a few years back. Hope this helps. Todd
Thanks for posting your fix. I had similar issues and decided to solder across the rail joints. I had many bad pieces. I almost threw it in the trash with disgust. I ended up soldering almost every piece. No problems so far. I have over 100 feet but would not get anymore.
I feel your pain Bob, I actually brought a big hammer and I was going to destroy them and post pix...LOL.... But now I like them!!
Ahhh, what a crazy hobby...
