You can always solder a jumper back in place.

But a 3-in-1 (wrap, unwrap, strip) wirewrapping tool is not that expensive
(say about $25, I think), and is almost essential if you work on DEC
backplanes (or on a lot of other computer hardware). I'd recomend buying

For some crazy reason DEC fitted the CA1-CB1 jumper before they put the
other wires on those pins. So you have to cut it - you can't unwrap the
old jumper, alas.
