Wiring question

I ordered a 6 position fuse block with a cover to run lights/CB radio off of (see pic below).

The box has 6 positions and a "in" and "out" connection for each fuse. My question is, can I run one wire into the first position and then do a little jumper wire off of that into the next 5 (to avoid running 6 12v wires from the battery)

I currently have an extra fuse box, but wanted this one because it has the cover...

As long as the wire can handle the total load of all the accessories you plan on putting on the block, sure. It may be a rather large wire considering your load, so judge it carefully. I would solder a wire from one to the other, and your hot wire to the last one with the beginning jumper.

The main wire will be 6awg and the jumper will be maybe 12 or 14awg..

I will solder the jumper to each of the 5 terminals and then to the hot terminal./..

I guess this will be sufficient??
