  • About my display
    About 20 to 30K of lights and more each year. I add one more display every year. I have converted to mostly LED lights.
  1. Stefan I am also new the the site but my two pennies are to add some light around that cool front window with the arch. Looks cool.
  2. Just got one last night at menards where I live. They did not have them a couple of days ago, so I am gussing that they are getting them in. Hope that helps.

  5. What happens if you dont blend at the 2:1 ratio on the same string will you start to burn out LED's or will the resistor go?
  6. I am fairly new to the world of LED lights so I am looking for some help. I have built several candy cane cuttouts and I am putting led lights in them. I have taken a strand of white and a strand of red and mixed them so that each candy cane has one total stand of red and white led lights.I have been reading many of the sites and I am concerend that they will not last they year since the operate at different voltages. Has anyone done this before or are there things that I can do to make them last. I have powered them up and they look great but I have one light at the end of each strand or in t
