  1. No, I have not ordered from them, but just ck’d out their site. Prices seem ok.
  2. So I just ck’d out the Christmas Lights Emporium and every item they sell is listed as ‘sold out’. Are they out of business?
  3. I watched the Christmas Lights Etc. video and was disappointed they didn’t show the lights twinkling. I wasn’t sold on purchasing, especially at that price.
  4. Enjoyed the video. Lots of creativity. That’s a lot of hard work.
  5. To jgwood: saw your for sale post from 2018. Still for sale?
  6. McKinley, here’s your answer; the power supplies in the Amazon link are all 12v D.C. which is too much voltage for a single LED, which typically operate at 3volts or less. It’s critical to match the output voltage as closely as possible. Your original nameplate is showing 2 - 4 volts. Going over or under will kill or greatly reduce the life of your device being powered. For output current, the replacement must be equal or greater than the original. ‘Using a replacement with higher amperage capacity could actually be good since it allows for cooler operation and consistent voltage. The
  7. Yes, I will send your question and see what he says. I’ll get back to you soon.
  8. Donna, your memory is phenom! The reason I was there in Albany-Schenectady was to purchase transit coaches from the NovaBus facility there. The employees at the plant were great, in fact, the manager there was pretty cool. He owned a bar nearby and parked a motorcycle outside the bar 24/7 and no one dared to mess with it. The bar also had a working motorcycle hanging on a wall that they would start once a week. We also did the bob sled ride in Lake Placid. I’d like to visit there again. Merry Christmas.
  9. I sent your question to a relative who is very good at electrical stuff. He said it won’t work and that it may have been made to use in Europe since the primary side input is 240v, where in the U.S. our voltage is 110v. Amazon sells a 110v to 220v step up/step down power voltage converter, made by Lineba. Not sure what you’re going to use this for, but be careful.
  10. For business reasons I spent a little time in Albany-Schenectady and Saratoga Springs about 15 or so years ago. Easy to love those places, so much to do. We came from Cleveland which is kinda in the Great Lakes snow belt, and it looks like you are in a snow belt also. Happy shoveling.
  11. Make sure you purchase the dielectric grease that’s made for waterproofing electrical connections. Because there’s more than one kind. I think raising your connections off the ground and onto 2 x 4’s should help. I tried using electrical tape on my outdoor Christmas light connections; but if rain or snow gets past the tape, then that moisture is held in there. Lowe’s sells those round locking electrical connectors for such an application, but I have not tried them. They’re green, plastic. Merry Christmas!
  12. I’m wondering if you are referring to dielectric grease? Electricians use it when making electrical connections.
  13. Very nice. Always enjoy group photos (all the blow molds grouped together).
  14. Hey Chuck, on August 14th, you wrote that you may consider a change, including making it easier to move Christmas items between members. I’m hoping you still may do this. Now that stores are carrying reduced Christmas stock, we can help each other get blow molds for example, that are hard to find; or big-box stores may have available in one part of the country. In this forum, I saw pics of blow molds available up north that were not sold here locally. Thanks, Scott.
  15. The star at the top will have a female opening. Measure that inside diameter and purchase same-size pvc from Lowe’s or H.D. for your pole. You can use wood for your base, like 2 x 4’s. I have 4 of these trees, takes less than 10 minutes to set up. Sweet.
