  1. I agree, they do get hot, and depending on what type of materials the tree's "needles" are made from the hot C-9's could melt it if they are touching the glass of the bulbs. Fire? Highly doubtful. Remember Mythbusters some years back? They packed like 1,000 clear C-9's on an artificial tree trying to get it to spontaneously combust, and if I recall it wouldn't on it's own. Personally I think the C-9's would be overkill, C-7's would probably be a better fit for an indoor tree.
  2. I believe, in order to get your cost down lower than what you could buy them from CDI, LED Holiday lighting, etc. you would need to purchase in full shipping container quantities, as they do. Probably nearly a half million dollars worth of lights fit into one of those containers... Buy them on an early order sale from one of the above and get them for around $1.00 each (green C-7 retrofits)
  3. They make clips for your tiles! http://store.christmasdesigners.com/Clay-Tile-Roof-Clip.html
  4. I'd use them but I need most of the green I have left for my mega tree spirals.
  5. If the lights are going onto a wood frame you could use a staple gun and pop a staple on either side of the sockets over the wire to hold them perfectly straight as well...
  6. Ok, don't know why I ended up with multiple posts of my last reply... Anyway, I put the tree outside and took some pics of it with my old blackberry so they aren't very good...
  7. I guess I should add, though it's probably obvious, that each color will be independently controlled via LOR.

  14. Ok, I've FINALLY got around to starting on my new mini trees for this year, and I'm using C-5 LEDs in Red, White, and Green. I wrapped one and I'm not real pleased with the results. Too many of the unlit 'bulbs' are visable and there's not much POP to it. I found that 150 actually fit perfectly, just by accident I suppose. I started wrapping at the bottom and ended up at the top with about a foot extra, lol. I'm just not thrilled with the amount of light from them. I have enough LED's to add 50 or each color, but I'm not thrilled about using my entire supply (and like $1,500 in LED's) to build 8 little trees... I'm using tomato cages, 2 per tree, nested on one another so there's 6 uprights to make them round. The top, which is now the bottom, ring is cut off and 3 wires left to stab into the ground, so the total height of the finished lighted portion is about 3 feet. My trees from the years prior are single cage trees so they are really a triangle, and they have 300 mini incandecents each but just one color each. These suckers are BRIGHT.
  15. FrostNsnow; If you are doing sequencing for free now, I've had a rough year myself and don't have a lot of extra money for my display and I'd be thrilled to have you sit and slave for 20 or 30 hours doing 5 new songs for my display this year!
