  1. Not a problem, they look great! It is really neat to see something that I created being used on some one else's display....Merry Christmas!
  2. I am hoping to be up and running this weekend. I incurred storm damage so hopefully will have that taken care of tomorrow...might be lit by Saturday...located in Cinnaminson...
  3. I know this is an old thread, but does anyone know where to locate 3/16" "green" wre frame clips? Need them for a new project I just made over the weeeknd. Andy
  4. Dano just told me you were looking for me....I went through some old emails and found her link... http://www.lorislighteddlites.com/
  5. Ed, In my experince as Gary pointed out, the key to any good weld is clean metal and getting it to melt. The short fall of any welder is can it pentrate the metal to the proper temp to "weld" or fuse the metal together. If I feel the metal is thicker than the capabilities of my welder, I wil tack weld the peices together, fire up my torches and get the metal glowing hot. Then apply my bead of weld to the hot spot. works everytime. Andy
  6. Now i am using an existing Mega tree set up, but in all including setting up the pole, header, stringing guide wires, attaching to ground, attaching lights to header, raising, and individualliy wrapping each strand of lights, 88 in total it took me 12 hours...from start to finish...
  7. Dan, Isn't there a town around you that you need to go trash picking something?
  8. There are 16 1/16" cables running from the header down. You bring up a point there Frank about the wires that would fall in between the "guide" cables...I may still go with the pvc just sitting on the ground so the extra wires could be zip tied to that for the continuing flow of the strands. still thing though of the anchors for the guides..That's the way Weber did his tree.... As for the tree...no still standing! As for the video...that's what happens to you after 10 hours of building it followed by too may margaritas! not sure if it was me that was side ways or the tree?hmmmm
  9. Oh by the way we had 70 mph winds yesterday and I got no movement! Still stands and hardly any slack in the cables or movement in the strands of lights.
  10. You Piney! You have way too much time on your hands!
  11. The tree is actually 18 1/2 feet tall. The diameter of the pvc ring is just 8 feet. I may change up the pvc rings to homemade anchors that I can twist into the ground. I had problems keeping the ring attached to the ground. it kept wanting to lift up. I thought about the super strings too Ed. The past week I have be changing a lot to the tree....I bagged the idea of taking it down as a net...I want to redo it anyway...I wasn't really quite happy with the way it looked...my OCD coming out in me..The trick to this tree is to make it slender...I wrapped the tree with one string of lights fr
  12. Dam Tim you did take some copious notes there at the mini!!!I am impressed or wasn't that time at 2 in the morning on Sunday that you were drilling me on how it was constructed???Can't remember....too many lemonades........
  13. you didn't....we have already been around that....
  14. Me and another individual have been tesing the voltage dropping in the sprinkler wire, and as of right now 100' run, there was no voltage droppage...We are playing with LEDS too....Just food for thought!
