  1. I have a modest display in Poway. About a mile away from Hickory Street (Candy Cane Lane). CCL is very nice. On Celestial Road, on the hill above Celestial Court. Look for the dimly lit house. 5:30-10:00
  2. Hiya Louie, Remember me??? If you didn't buy those from Amazon, I have some unused 35 cnt M6 from CDI (2007 good stuff). Red, green, blue, and warm white. Sell them @cost + shipping. Michael
  3. Simple physics. Open the plug door. Turn the plug so the fuses are facing down, and lightly tap the whole plug against a solid object until the fuses pop out. (works for me, YMMV)
  4. skibozo If my poor old brain is right , I think / remember you making candy canes out of black PVC. I want to ask how well they lasted ? Mik E

  5. Scott, my wife & I are happy we could help, and everything worked out great. Merry Christmas to you & family.

  7. Then I carefully place the pipe inside the bottom part of the jig, and cut/tear what's left of the tape holding it to the jig. Then I just roll the pipe, trying to keep the pipe square to the jig. After reaching the top part of the jig, I do the tape cutting. Right picture shows how the ends may be ragged. I just tape up the rest using short pieces of blue tape. Gives a pretty consistent stripe if you are making multiple NPL's. I'm also rolling on top of a smooth piece of plywood. My garage concrete floor is a little rough so the tape doesn't adhere as well, and the tape edges did
  8. Here's my NPL striping jig. Made from 1"x2" wood. Inside measurements are 30" wide, and 81.5" long. Try to find the straightest wood for the long side, otherwise the pole will bind when rolling.I'musing 4" pipe cut to 29.75" long,so I have 1/4" 'wiggle' room. 81.5" mainly because that was the shortest piece of wood I had available at the time, but I liked the resulting stripe pattern. Upper right shows alignment marking for the blue tapeto keep stripes consistent. Bottom left shows the 2" blue tape installed, but sticky side down. Bottom right jig is flipped sticky side up. I cut most
  9. Richard, you must have been depressed and beaten down by the man. I see ONE extension cord, BUT no lights, no controllers...... :{ It's great that you do things like that with your daughter. Memories that she will treasure forever.:smile: btw I hope you are not offended, but I'm shocked everytime I see your picture. Somehow I keep thinking you looked more like Willy Wonka.....:laughing::laughing:
  10. Ahhhhh.....dreamland......where cost is no object.........:]
  11. Paul, I emailed you my order just now. I'm kinda on a crazy graveyard schedule right now. Call me if you have any issues. Thanks, Michael
  12. I believe this program is available only for XP. Download and installthe image resizer. Then, you can select one or multiple pictures, right-click, select image resizer,and resize all of them quickly. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx Works great!
