  1. Agree, mig welding alum is a pain, high cost to setup if your not all ready. Your better off migging stainless, only wire change for that, same gas ratio used.
  2. Awesome looking, how many seasons have you had this out?
  3. I have a little stand-a-lone prop that is just a animated set of bears clapping bells together to make a song. I have figured out a basic circuit which when triggered, will play the bears for 20 seconds. My question, has anybody figured out a way so when money is dropped past a sensor, would activated something? My donation box is an 4" pvc pipe that looks like a Candy Cane that people drop money down. The sensor would need to be good for coin or paper, so I am guessing a micro switch is out. Needs to me a sort of Photo eye, just not sure on type and ciruit to make it work. Any Sugguestions? The circuit that activates the bears is a simple 555 timer with delay. Thanks, Chuck Attached is a shot of the 3" cane I built last year, is getting up graded to 4" this yr due to much money getting stuck in tube.
  4. Looking at some options, and looks like a will be selling off my LOR DC cards next month. I have 4 of them I purchased last fall. Drop me a PM with an offer if you are interested in them. Not selling them tell I receive a new product being produced next month or so, being I am using them nightly to control my landscape lighting. I am switching to all DMX based dc controllers.
  5. No wonder why my dogs and wife are nuts this weekend

  13. Dude, looking cool. How about adding flames when the elf hits the top, just because!
  14. One great thing with arc welders, they almost never break. Never need gas, wire etc... Just a couple of general purpose sticks, i like 7818's, and you can just about get anything to stick together (steel of coarse). I see them all the time for sale, and cheap, and think to buy another. I have one 250amp at my shop, and a mig at my house. Always a pain driving that 1/2 hr over if I need to stick. Make the meter spin, an enjoy your welder.
  15. Wonder if you could animated them now. I'm thinking a break dancing santa in the future

  17. OK, Going to stay "Quiet" and Listen to everybody's thoughts for a week. Keep the ideas coming, party on, and get outside and take down your display.
  18. Please, Please, Please, I am only starting a thread to get ideas. If anybody wants to step up and take charge, no problems here. I started this thread not to take charge. With Forums like this, no one should need to feel like they are in charge.
  19. I'll give him a shout tues. Good Idea.
  20. I think Chuck H's place is a little far for some to travel :giggle:
