  • About my display
    My display is in the creative stages. I don't want to over do it but I think three theme areas will be what happens.
  1. What Happened to the Vendor Listing

    Jeff, you are the best! Thank you thank you thank you!
  2. What Happened to the Vendor Listing

    That helps a bit, anyone out there ever copy the vendor list from the old site? Could you email it to me or put it in a post here. Really lost without it. My laptop died and when I got the new one up and running found the website had changed and the vendor tab with the listings of all the vendors available to us disappeared. Mike
  3. LOR Sequences

    Wow, it's August! What has happened to summer! Made some repairs to last years display. Now for this year! 9 new wire frames, 2 more camels, 2 additional shepherds, 2 more sheep, another rabbit, 2 nutcrackers. 4 8' long 24" tall white picket fences with 18 painted Christmas cartoon characters. Going to enhance the sequences I have and add more.
  4. What Happened to the Vendor Listing

    Ok, It's been a 3 months since I have been on here. Wow! Like the new format but what happened to the vendor tab that you could looks through links to various vendors. I am lost! My previous computer crashed and burned with all my contact info for various vendors that I work with. Yes I have a few receipts but not all. Can anyone help me out? I am looking for the wholesale lighting vendors and the sequence websites that you could purchase ready made sequences and then purchase the mp3 from Amazon. Mike's Creations Ps. on a personal note adding 13 new wire frames this year and 18 cartoon characters along with a bunch of other stuff and sprucing up the sequences that I have already.
  5. Hi everyone, been a while since I've posted. Rotator cuff surgery went well, physical therapy done and full motion back. Still working on building up the strength. Hired a personal trainer at the gym to help me with this. Oh, well, been a busy few weeks here, this years display will have 2 additional shepherds, 2 more sheep, another bunny, 2 more camels. Also 2 animated nut crackers guarding the singing trees. So now wire frame wise, there will be a total of 22 wire frame units out this year. In addition to 12 green and red wrapped tree trunks also animated, 4 singing coro animated trees, 3 sparkle balls, and all the other glitz. OH almost forgot, 24 cartoon characters on 3 8' sections of white picket fence all hand made. And all this will run off of 2 20 amp circuits, each circuit pulling about 8-10 amps. ALL LED. Love it. So what are you adding this year? Mike's Creations
  6. LED light coverings

    I will look through my paper work in the morning. I have a bunch they are not rubber, plastic, they are ok, but not real good true color representation. I use true lights in various counts. Extra lights I put a piece of 3/8 heat shrink over the extra glass bulbs and tape them to the frame. This way if one ever goes out, I don't have to look through a million little bulbs to find the right one. Mike

Input Volume Control to adjust to input levels. Stereo/Mono switch (mono has a longer range). Microphone input and line input. PLL (phase lock loop) prevents frequency drift. Includes Audio "Y" cable allowing speakers and FM transmission. Universal power adapter (4 different power sources supported). Remembers station frequency and on/off state without power.

  8. LED lights for sale,almost brand new!

    If you don't get any takers and are willing to ship which I would be more than happy to cover, I could use 5-8 of the green. Mike

  11. Help

    Sounds like you could be overloading the circuit, what is the wattage on the bulbs in the blow molds, generally they are 15-20 watts, is there more than one bulb in each blow molds, if you have 25 watts per blow mold x 25 units, 625 watts for the blow molds, the spiral trees if the older style are 40 watts per unit, plus if they are the old deer, another 40 watts, and generally the outside outlite is not on it's own circuit, so you already have a load on it and sometimes they gang it to another outlite with the gfi in the middle. Just sayin. Mike
  12. Dimming?

    Ok, someone on here told me that they put in a glade plug in at the end of the led light string to get rid of the flicker? Mike
  13. LED Pre- Sale Help

    1000bulbs, Led warehouse. Mike
  14. After Christmas Sale

    Candi's Lighted d lites, your right you make me sick. Our walmarts did not have any individual colors at all this year in LED's, and I complained to the manger, told him not everyone wants multi color, that they could have had a case of each color. Mike
  15. Rope lighting

    Ok, this past season I built 4 coro singing Christmas Trees, 32x24. The main tree outline and 2 mouth outlines used 3/8 green and red rope light purchased in bulk. Don't remember which vendor. Problem is the crappy clips! I used what was on the site two different styles in 3/8 size. Purchased 400, still have a bunch left. All the clips were hot glued screwed and bolted to the coro. The problem is when I installed the rope light the clips would break, the side would break off as you tried to insert the rope light. I was as gentle as could be, I tried the rope light at room temp, clip would break, then heating the rope light up with a heat gun, sometime it broke sometimes not. After getting the rope light in I would replace broken ones. Then hot glue the rope to the coro. I went out a couple of weeks ago to clear the snow off the trees before the display became live for the night using a leaf blower and noticed before even beginning to blow that several more clips had broken but the rope light retained it's shape from the cold. Question is how do you attach your rope light to the coro, what method has worked the best or did i just get a really bad batch of clips? Mike
