Hi James,

I recently did a Buchla 200e folding case clone, which you can see here:


And here:


I simply ran hardwired cables between to bus boards of each boat around 
the backside of the case, using the same kind of cable-squeezers found 
in almost every electrical device to keep the cable from getting pulled 
out it. I'd be happy to send some photos if this sounds vague, hopefully 
it doesn't. In post #53 you can see the holes I drilled for the power 
bus cables pretty clearly.

Also, have a look at this thread on the EM forum for general stuff about 
the folding Buchla case clones:
