  1. Good deals?

    There are some deals, nothing that I'm going nuts over. Might pick up a roll of SPT2 and take it home, won't have to pay shipping then. Can never have enough Zip cord.
  2. So who's going to the Expo?

    S5 BETA for LOR came out, went to some classes on how to use it, might being go backwards to S4, as of right now trying it out and playing with it, not intuitive at all.
  3. So who's going to the Expo?

    I'm going, and mt nephew begged enough that I am bringing him also.
  4. Expo 2017

    I am pretty sure I am going.
  5. 10th Annual Virginia mini

    I think it is a good idea. I dont have anything to sell, but I am known to impulse buy Christmas light stuff.
  6. How to lock a LOR Residential controller?

    Not everyone lives in nice areas, a little extra security can't hurt.
  7. Christmas Expo Lebenon Tn

  8. 10th Annual Virginia mini

    Look forward to seeing everyone.
  9. Area meeting

    Just saw this thread, not sure how I missed it before. I would be interested. Does anyone know if anyone is working on a mini this year?
  10. Installing lights on new wireframes

    NEVER NEVER EVER CUT ANY LED LIGHT STRING! They have rectifiers on them, sometimes multiple. If you cut the string you will shorten the life of the string considerably because they are set up with set voltages. Once you cut 3 or 4 or more lights out you are sending more voltage to the remaining lights causing them to burn brighter than the rest and reducing their life span. If you cut lights out, you need to take note the location of the rectifiers, and take reisteance reading and place a resistor(s) in the circuit to keep the total reisistance the same, and you should be okay then. Just my two cents. Don Mcabee likes this Like this Quote
  11. Need ideal on failed lights

    Sorry, I don't recall what brand they were, it was years ago. I couldn't stand the flicker and they were given away.
  12. Need ideal on failed lights

    All the Half wave I used to have were just that, they used a half wave rectifier because they are cheaper, (two less diodes). They did not rely on the last LED in the chain to keep current from flowing the opposite direction. (check valve if you are a mechanical type). (I also have an electrical background, and made my living doing such for years.)
  13. Announcing the 9th annual Virginia Mini on May 21, 2016

    I'm looking forward to going, never been to one yet.
  14. 9th Annual Virginia Mini

    Look forward to this, I almost went last year.
