Wirewrap "disadvantage" counterpoint:
Inexpensive sockets can be found. I regularly purchase lots of 30-and 40-pin long strips and breakoff only the amount needed.
OK, I learned something.
Since sockets are used, components can easily be removed & changed without potentially disastrous unsoldering.
I always use sockets with Verowire too; but I don't need wire-wrap sockets, almost any sort of DIP socket will do.
Stripping wire is not difficult
No, but measuring the required length, cutting and stripping it does take time.
- and each and every joint does not need soldering afterwards.
Soldering the joints takes very little time. I suspect that wrapping the Verowire wire around the IC socket with the wiring pen and soldering it takes no more time than wire wrapping 1 wire, and certainly less than wire-wrapping 2 wires.
Since there is no soldering, changes and/or corrections are easy to make.
The number of corrections should be much lower than the number of wires initial wired. But corrections are easy to make with Verowire. Use a solder sucker to remove most of the solder from the socket pin, cut out any wires you don't want, add new wires, and resolder.
N components need a wire if all are daisychained - but its also very easy to make a change on a board if needed.
If I wire A-B and B-C using wire wrap, that's no different to wiring A-B-C with Verowire. If I decide I don't want A-B or B-C, then I can just snip it out. If I don't want A-C, then it's no different whether I use wire wrap or Verowire, I have to remove or snip out both A-B and B-C.
Board does not have to be deep - different level wirewrap pins are available if fewer connections are being made.
Where does that leave you when you need to make corrections?
No wiring combs are needed.
OK, I'm spending £0.02 (about 3c) on wiring combs, but by using non-wire-wrap IC sockets, I've probably saved more than that already.
In the end: Either method can be used for prototypes.
