MAKE: AMENDS Errata for This Article

Correction for page 112
On page 112 of MAKE Volume 05 ("How to Build a Power Tap"), we ran an illustration that could cause some confusion as well as a tripped circuit breaker.

PLEASE DO NOT BUILD THE POWER TAP AS SHOWN IN THE ILLUSTRATION.

The illustration shows a dual plug receptacle, which, when wired improperly, can cause a short circuit. Do not attach the wires from the extension cord to the screws on the same side of the receptacle, because it will create a short circuit.

Here is a corrected PDF for that page.

The PDF is designed so you can paste it right over page 112 in MAKE 05.
