Thank you very much for the quick response.
i continued on and finished the larger board.THEN,,i got to where in the speedball manual it said "UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES" should I go further if i dont get some astronomically high resistance at OA and OB on the larger board,,, which, when I measured it I was getting NOTHING !! and I mean absolutely nothing ,,,not even a (fart in the wind),,,
so then I went digging on the forum and saw where YOU, i think, mentioned that with the speedball upgrade installed,,the resistance measurements at 7u and 9u will be somewhere around low or nothing really,,,
well, armed with that information( and since i felt that I had been super meticulous on each solder joint) I decided to apply POWER,,,,
BLAM !! ..... What was it that that guy on that 70's sitcom ,THE A TEAM, would say?,, " I LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN A COMES TOGETHER".
