Calculator: Length of Spiral Light Strings!

Recommended Posts

There is a spreasheet that was linked here on the forum several years ago, but the link is no longer working.  I had grabbed the file, and can post it or send it to you if desired.

Looking for a recommendation from those that have built spiral trees.  How may revolutions?

Jim when I started spiral trees 8 years ago I tried, 1 turn-not good, 1 1/2 turns good,  2 turns-too much. Now with that said, it depends on the length of the light strings that you want to use on the size of the tree. Good spiral trees are dependent not only on the wrapping but also the number of strings per color and the programming that goes with it ( this I'm sure you already know). My 2-10" trees  use 64 strings -16 of each color-blue & red together wrapped one way and green & white wrapped the other way, these lights are c6 50 count 17.5' long wrapped 1 1/2 turns. The 15' tree is done the same way but uses c6 70 count 24.3' long wrapped 1 1/2 turns. Hope this helps.
