  2. Love my strobes from CDI, five years now and they look great every year.
  3. Mine are 20" incandescent folding shimmering snowflakes. I cant remember where I ordered them but I will start replacing the with the led ones. Christmaslightsetc.com has them. [sharedmedia=videos:videos:506] This is last year.
  4. Wow I am so behind, I am only 15% done with mine, to much work.

    I only have the video
  6. Yes, they are up there until they fall off or the ridge shingles need replaced
  7. Just took some quick pics
  8. Roofline: I wanted to share how I installed my lights on the roofline this year utilizing www.liteclipstrip.com I had five goals 1. not to damage the shingle seal by placing clips under the shingle year after year 2. faster installation 3. even distribution 4. keep the lights from blowing off the roof 5. little to store off season The lite clips strips solved all these issues I used exterior liquid nails and the strips are on tight.

    Green Lights

    I could not find green lights at Lowes, Hobby Lobby or Garden Ridge so I ordered them online. I have not tried Ace Hardware and Home Depot has not got their lights yet.
  10. Has anyone tried making these with rebar? I am thinking about trying it.
  11. Ramsey fm100b fm stereo transmitter with antenna 275.00 + shipping I also have four LOR1602W for sale 225.00 + shipping Richard Bowen
  12. I just pound the center # 4 rebar into the ground, then i just wire the pvc to the halo, I just set the pvc bases on the ground.
  13. I did add a halo to the 10' tree's as well. it kept the stems from all swinging to one side. I just took a ten foot peice of #3 rebar and bent it with my foot and attached it to the #4 rebar with rebar wire. Worked great.
  14. Look at post 41 http://forums.planetchristmas.com/sh...te+tree&page=5
  15. I use one string of 100 count LED's, the longer sticks I use two strings one 100 count and one 50 count.
  16. I added a halo to my tree's to keep the branches from moving around, worked great. I used a 10' peice of rebar and laid it on the ground and steped on it and starting beding. Here are some pics. All my tree's are minute tree's or pvc tree's. All my tree's are wrapped with Paul Sessels C-6 LED's G/R/WW
  17. http://forums.planetchristmas.com/showthread.php?t=24333&highlight=minute+tree&page=5 post #41 update, my 18' tree fell this year due to weak land anchors, really strong winds, and rain and it only took me an half an hour to put it back up.
  18. I am looking into the c-9 retro fits, I'm learning they have five diodes per bulb, I guess the c-7's LED's I got already on the string only had one diode.
  19. I got c-7's from CDI but they were not retro's maybe thats the difference. Glade to see your joining Lone-Star-Holidays.com
  20. check out this article, http://www.lone-star-holidays.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2313 , Jeff Womack is the expert, get the C-9 with five diodes from Illumimax, I got the CDI's and they only have one diode and are very dull.
  21. Do NOT use the C-7's, they have a single LED in them and dont fill the globe, the C-6's look amazing, use "WARM WHITE". I mix my incandescents with my warm whites and they look great.
  22. I will be going with Paul in 2010, even though I got cought in the 08 disaster. I to am still dealing with bad LED's going out. I just wrap another string on my trees and cut the mail end off so I know its bad. Paul did send me three boxes of replacements.
  23. Glade to see you made it, that was completly insane. Really enjoyed the video. Come join. www.Lone-Star-Holidays.com
