@Shalvenay You can sure try. My wire wrap tools that I've used didn't tolerate a wide range of wire gauges. I suspect you won't be able to get the same result except for maybe the tiniest of leads. Short term, it's probably fine. With solder, it's fine.
 
@W5VO yeah, on further discussion and reflection, I'm leaning more towards using trimpots instead of component substitution at least for the resistors, might as a Q on mainsite about the cap values come to think of it though
(20pF + 82pF is a very odd combo of load capacitors for a 32.768kHz crystal, given most of them have a nominal load capacitance of 6 or 12.5pF)
 
weird... if you mean in parallel, then 100pF is probably close enough.
 
@W5VO 20pF on one side and 82pF on the other
 
weird....

Well, there it is... clear as day.

@W5VO Do you know about that video with the 120 - 240 volt transformer I shared and had a question about? Well I figured out how it worked and the principal behind it so I made my own. It turns out that I can plug it into a 20 Amp 125 volt circuit and get up to 17 amps at 225 volts on a full load.
Without tripping the breaker at all.
So I thought I'd give an update on that.
 
5:10 AM
Thought it would be an interesting experiment
@adamaero Well it would be used in a wide variety of areas. Like on a jobsite with a few guys who want to play music while they work and then at the beach. (Not so much a beach but at a lake, there is a special spot that has unbelieveable waters) They do have worksite speakers powered by 50V batteries from drills and such. But I'm not looking for something like that because yes it's cool and nice but more expensive.

@ScientistSmithYT Repeat after me: "A circuit breaker is not a calibrated measurement tool"
I do not believe all four numbers are correct at the same time. If they are, you need to replace your breaker. But unless you show me a single picture with 4 meters (current and voltage in, current and voltage to load), I don't take anything you're saying at face value.

A breaker trips somewhere in the colored area. A small overload may well run for a considerable time before tripping.

@W5VO & @JRE Yes I already know about a breaker not being calibrated, I was just giving an update on what I got out of it. I figured it would be interesting know it was sustained on a 20 amp breaker with the output I mentioned. I wasn't stating anything else. I know it was surging more than the 20 amps for the breaker as all breakers do. I was just giving information at face value.
More so an update. I figured I had a little funding for that so I'd use it and carry it out. I was only giving an update
