  • About my display
    Started with a little static display, and through the years, got to animated and now WOW do I ever love it!!
  1. CamLok with heavy conductors will be your best option. Any Show production/sound/lighting rental place will have that. Most likely called <feeder cable> in their terms with a <Pigtail> to connect to the breaker. The rental should not be too expensive.
  2. I did the bucket truck trick... Costed me 60$ to get an electical company to stop by on a sunday afternoon to do the work. Well worth it!!!
  3. Those bulbs look like 100w par 64 bulbs They are used as stage lighting Really bright and makes a lot of heat!!! They can set color gels on fire if they are too close to the bulb. Been there !!! How are you controlling them???
  4. Hi everybody!!!! Here is my situation. I am in Quebec, Canada and the stores around me are all out of christmas lights. I mean totally wiped out. Most of them did not even put them on sale. They just stored them for next year. I read that this seem to be the situation in some areas of the US too. I am loooking for 20 x 100ct red, 20 x 100ct green and 20 x 100ct clear all minis for next years display. Right now, I have 9000 lights all static but next year I want to go with LOR and go up to 15 000 light.If I buy the light at retail next fall,I will have to pay5.00$ or more + tax per
  5. Right now, I am all static so my first goal would be to do animated next year. In no particular order, -16 channel LOR system - Go from 9000 to 12000 lights. - FM transmitter (Probably the Belkin mod) - Taller Mega tree (10' right now, want to go to 14 or 16 - Make wire harness so I don't have to run so may cords to each location - Redo some of my wireframes with rope light (or del ropelight)
  6. C-9 do take a lot of power. Just make sure to not plug too many in a row. This would cause wires to overheat, fuses to blow, etc... You should not have any problems.
  7. Be sure to unplug the lights before you staple... :shock: It can make some really nice sparks :laughing:
  8. A light keeper pro should be able to help you. They are around 20$ and are worth every penny!!!

    Thanks for the warm welcoming!!! Since I am very close to the US boarder, I might just as well come and shop next year!!! Just have to find the closest Wal Mart!!! As far as pictures go, It will have to wait for next year since some things are getting stored right now and I didn't think of taking any pictures!!! :shock: :happytree:

    Hi everybody, I found this site a couple of years ago but never really looked thru it. In the past week, I lurked a lot and founf some very interesting things. I'm from Quebec, Canada and I am a decoration freak. Right now, my display is around 6000 lights but I plan to expend a lot in the next years. I was looking thru the ''What did you buy on boxing day'' thread and say that a lot of you bought a lot of 100 ct lights mainly from Wal mart at an awesome price. Here in Canada, they sell indoor and outdoor lights. Is there anything wrong with using indoor lights outside in the snow??
