    Here are some basics that I discovered that eventually led to a solution:

    Start by putting the two pins with the highest number of wires (I had one with 8 and one with 7) in the top corners, one left and one right.

    Pull one of your next highest pins down to the bottom center (you'll likely have to change which one this is as you progress in solving it, but even a wrong one should help get you started).

    Start moving some of the smallest-number pins (that are joined to both the 7 and 8) into the top center of the frame, just below the wire joining the 7 and 8--put the pins in a vertical column, so that the wires don't overlap or cross.

    You can only do that with a few pins, and you'll likely need to switch them around a bit to prevent crossing.

    You'll begin to see the effect you need to create as you move the other pins around in the remaining space--this and some occasional switching out and perseverance should help you get through it.

    I hope that begins to help you move in the right direction!

    Beleive me, it's totally worth it to finish!

    Good luck!
