  1. am in desparate need of 2 of these if anyone has any
  2. Does anyone remember these http://www.snowflakesinmotion.com/inaction.html I had 2 blow off the house tonight and get run over by a car and am desparate to replace them. If anyone has any to spare, please let me know. Mike
  3. Same here, nothing broke, but my mini trees have been buried under the 30 inches of snow we got.
  4. If you can still find them, Lowes has 50ct GE LED strings, Cool White and Multi at $3.33 each. Some Lowes are accepting the coupons on multiple purchases, netting a price of .33.
  5. Not sure what it is, but the lights of winter archway's last show was in 2008, they were discontinued last year and never put up. Maybe it's coming back this year.
  6. I am looking for abuot 16 boxes of 100 ct green minis if anyone has any at a reasonable price. Lowes by me is only carrying red, clear and multi this year it looks like.
  7. Tie them to the hoop, run them up, back down, then to the center pole, where I am keeping the controller, eliminates the need for any extension cords
  8. I had some walmart 100 ct minis that I just used to test my tree (same dimensions as the plans provided). Thy fit nice, up and back down. I think each strand is about 25'. Had one strand per channel, looks like I willbe getting another 16 sets to make it 3 strands per channel.
  9. Getting the bottom and mid parts to mate after they were each put together separately was hard as they were not completely straight to start with and did not align properly, but a sledgehammer helped with that. After that I learned to make any connections line up properly before gluing. Everything else went great. Still have to take it outside and assemble it to see how it looks, only have 7 foot ceilings in the basement.
  10. Thanks Glen My Tree is done, just need to get the lights. I plan on 1 color (well maybe 2) this year, 8 channels
  11. One more question, the 3" PCV Collar, is that the same as a Coupling?
  12. My lowes had some slip tees, but not the ones I needed.
  13. I purchased most of the parts to build this tree for my display this year. (Still need to get the 10' pieces, won't fit in my car). I was planning on 8 channels, 1 color for this year (green), how many light strings would anyone suggest for each channel? Would 100 ct walmart strands be the right length (hate to have to pull them out to see how long they are....) Thanks for any help. Mike
  14. Not for lights, but for hanging larger items (12 18" snowflakes), this year i used 3M command hooks. I had serious doubts that they would work on the textured siding, and being applied in the cold, but they have held for weeks now, even with the 40-50 mph winds that have been tearing shingles off my roof in the last few days. I used the medium utility hooks.
  15. Lyndhurst, NJ here www.lightsonpost.com for address
  16. Being the Disney Geek (and DIsney Travel agent ) that I am, here you go: The original tour is called the Yuletide Fantasy Tour, $69 per person, minimum age 16, takes place 11/28 through 12/30. It's a 3 hour tour and discounts may be available for AAA members, Disney Visa card holders etc. It's mostly an on stage tour, but there is some backstage stuff. There is a new tour this year called Disney's Holiday D-LIghts Tour. This one sounds more like something you might be interested in. Disney's Holiday D-Lights Tour will show how the twinkle of holiday magic is created for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, the transformation of Cinderella Castle, and the Candlelight Processional. The tour will only be offered on the following 2009 dates: Mondays November 30, and December 7 and 14; and Wednesdays December 2, 9 and 16. Tours will begin at 5 p.m. outside of Epcot. This tour is for guests 16 years of age and older. The cost is $179 per person. Theme park admission is NOT required. Make your reservation by calling 407-WDW-TOUR. Mike
  17. If you look at any of the videos I have posted on youtube, the red lights in the windows on the 1st floor on the wind-o-light frames are white lights with red caps, the red lights on the mini trees are actual red lights www.youtube.com/bdfan2
  18. (not the op, but) Lowes did not carry plastic ones, but home depot did
