  1. We have had a sleigh and several reindeer made from plywood for several years now, bought them at a garage sale so no idea how old they really are. The sleigh hasn't weathered very well so I needed to make a new one. I also wanted to make it easy to take apart and put together so we can store it indoors. The old one was all screwed together. We started with a sheet of exterior grade plywood and one of the old sleigh sides as a pattern. Which became a couple of these: And then this: I think the inspector approves First coat of primer on everything, a couple coats of white paint to come:
  2. I had nine kids cry and was told off by one parent, overall a successful Halloween. 😁
  3. she had me at the horse pooooh aroma, she would never be able to sneak up on me.
  4. First thing I've won in years & years.... Hopefully just started a streak...
  5. After 12 months I may finally get my life back. Finally getting my 4th and hopefully final surgery on September 27th. Get a brand new shiny hip and for the first time in 12 months I will no longer be in pain
  6. Control the kids going into a show.... :)
  7. 4 WEEKS !!!! 4 weeks (from yesterday) is the Central Oklahoma Mini. If you are interested in attending, please PM me and I'll add you to the invite list. We are getting a head count for charis/tables and food. So please contact me if interested. Thank you, Tom
  8. I go thru a lot of ties. Mounting my LED strobes took over 2000! There was one for each bulb plus some extras on each of the 40 strands https://vimeo.com/280309439 I will be sticking with the old fashioned ties.
  9. May be a good idea for some but not for me. Something else to carry around. Something else to misplace/lose. Different tension for different application throughout my display Cheaper with not buying it. Slows down progress (gotta handle the tool and material). and lastly, manually working zipties by hand has worked fast and flawless for decades.
  10. Here you go Bob. Added the brown Clock wire.
  11. Something like this should work. Obviously you can make each string whatever length that you want. Because the power and ground does not have to travel down and back up each hanging piece, the resistance is far less of an issue. Make sense?

    After spending about an hour on the phone with dibblejr I'm now able to create my own sequences. After all these years, I now have new songs for my neighbors to listen to. It's funny how one little thing can get you wrapped around the axle. Still got lots to learn but, thanks to dibblejr I'm on my way...………………...
  13. I’m with Tom. Only gfci popping issues from using vampires and spt are when the connection is setting in a puddle, not once from snow. Worst part about vampires is that with some brands the plastic pieces are cut a hair too tight. So during take down I need a flathead screwdriver to separate the male and females. BE SURE POWER IS OFF!
  14. That's one piece of advise I always give to newbies. Figure out how many extension cords you need and then triple it. Then be ready to buy more.
  15. UPDATE: What I found out. The board had a prior owner. The 'config' was set to 98% Maximum intensity Range. Changing that to 100%, cured the issue (Wheeew!)
  16. drive 3ft x 1/4" rebar into the ground about 8". ziptie the middle rod of the tree to the rebar left sticking outta the ground. bamm. done.
  17. Well lets see i had about 20 kids cry 1 parent cussing about dropping a spider on them 1 parent almost dropped his expensive Nikon camera when i dropped the spider on him and gave out about 300 bags of candy . It was a successful Halloween
  18. Awesome walk-thru, just too much for me as I would need much more time to tear it down to start setting up for Christmas. The wife keeps wanting me to add more each year to Halloween but it's too much work to get it down and Christmas up in a month.
  19. My stuff finally arrived. 😃 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ubhm9y8gy92bof3/2018-10-26 16.16.44.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/7adqb954y66unxc/2018-10-26 16.12.05-2.jpg?dl=0
  20. JR, is one of the best. After taking time to assist me, problem was solved. Had to go get the Rubbermaid container from the curb and place it back in the shed. Thanks to all that sent me in the right direction and helped. Bruce
  21. Dang dude. That’s great of you to be thinking of her so much. Makes me tear up.
  22. 3 videos on my Dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/sh/krmgnb4sglfqsc0/AADo4n5LYcCh4-ELfnT4Qoq9a?dl=0 First video clip just shows the back roof, being a corner house I wanted to have lights shown from different sides. The second video is side view just shows my hedge and wall lights (are not controlled). Can’t forget my Ho’s. Last video is front view of the house during a sequence for a minute. My street is at a T intersection so I have 3 tune to signs to cover any direction of traffic coming to see the display. 32 ac channels. Pixie 4 for arches. 26 inflatables. Fm transmitter inside and a soundbar mounted outside.
  23. The weather finally rose above freezing today, so I only had to tromp through about 7" of mushy snow. So, I started really getting items up on the house today. The only house props left are the two giant candy cane clocks on each side, so straightening and then the wiring. Next weekend is supposed to be even nicer, so hopefully all gets done by then. I didn't put up the canes because we are supposed to get quite the rain soaker on Thursday evening. I'll get the yard props up during the week before the rain, hopefully. Here's where I am at so far.
  24. Correct. Also make sure NONE of the Windows generated sounds are enabled.
  25. Yes late, last year it was on Nov 22 so you had an entire week before Dec. So yes it is later in the month this year.
  26. If this is the drive where your entire LOR data folders are located, you can run Lorpost.exe and point it to the new drive letter. Lorpost is in the c:\programs x86\ lor folder This assumes you are using S4, as your profile states.
  27. Massimo, Isn't another name for the CCR-II's a Pixie 2? If so here is some instructions from the User Manual. It sounds like not all the dip switches on the board are not set to "off". This means everytime power is removed (turned off) the unit will boot up to the unit id set by the dip switches. In your case it sounds like it is set to Unit 1 via the dipswitches. If you turn all the dipswitches off, then the settings you are using in Hardware Utility will stay. You can set the unit ids in 2 ways, one is set every dipswitch to off and let Hardware Utility do it, or set the dip switches on each unit to the unit id you wish to use as listed on page 41 of the manual. http://www1.lightorama.com/PDF/Pixie_Man_105.pdf page 12 for Hardware Config, and page 41 for setting the Unit Id via the dipswitches Hope this helps Alan...
  28. As I said, you are welcome to call me. I will PM my phone number to you.
  29. Singing faces can be purchased at many places and if you use standard store bought leds and a CTB16PC controller you would onlyuse one Unit ID. A second option if you are wanting to change colors is LORs CMB24D with some dumb RGB lights. This controller only use one ID and you would be able to change colors. It also doesn't need a high speed network. Honestly, I wouldn't use pixels on a face. My choice would be the CMB24D and dumb RGB lights.
  30. I bought mine after I got out of the Navy in 73. The sponges keep wearing out and I don't know where the metal tip tray (insert) went (way too many moves over the years). So Yes. That makes me old as well 😛
  31. JR your work on singing trees sequences has brought joy to a whole lot of people on this forum ,thank you Dennis Laff
  32. 👍 There are bad folk that take advantages of typos of commonly visited sites to purvey p0ron and other nasties. Bookmark sights you visit frequently. STAY SAFER, Typos on our part do happen.. SOME OF THE BAD SITES LOOK VERY CLOSE TO THE REAL ONE, EXCEPT THEY JUST GOT YOUR LOGON AND PASSWORD. That is why some banks have gone to a 2 step logon.
  33. +1, I am also sticking with S4 until they add some of the older features into S5.
  34. Matt, Is it possible to make a mark that follows the cursor on the timing line. It would make it easier to line up effects when effects are being added/edited at the bottom of the page. Rough animation to show what I am talking about. or is this something already there? that I don't have on? TIA, Alan...
  35. Gee, I was thinking exactly the same thing.
  36. Didn't think about this. Cable is pretty cheap also. Thank you
  37. You might have got off lucky. For me, this kinda stuff involves a complete room remodel, complete with new paint, drapes, carpet, electrical, etc............... 🤑 Alan....
  38. I think there's something abnormal going on with your setup/controller. Having 50+ strings of these, and then seeing this in my LOR feed I almost pooped my pants. Then I did some testing. I tested on two different versions of older CTB16PC controllers and also on an old CTB08D and on all three the strobes worked just fine at full on. Whew!
  39. I am glad you posted this- now I remember where I started putting my photos after photo bucked started extorting is. Tinypic I have been looking every site I could think of. For whatever reason tinypic never come up on my google search. Anotjer member here had recommended it after the afformentioned event. JR
  40. I have this and can send it tonight. What’s your email address?
