The only thing I took from this experiment was the ease of getting though the shared holes. Perhaps in the future I would pre-string the mains, and only the first few crosses that have shared holes. Otherwise, I can't see this method saving too much time.

Thanks for your input.

I think it's probably better to stick to the old fashioned way than pre-stringing
