I'm talkin about the first post on THIS thread, about mini trees. Then I saw the video which I wasn't for sure what to think of that when related to the first post of this thread.

 

I myself would loosen up on the tight winding and spread out those lights a little. That's just me though.

I had to use wire ties on my mini trees to keep the wires spread out on the cone shape - lots of wire ties.  I love all of the metal videos!  I keep meaning to sequence Ministry's "No W" but I have never had enough time to get it done.

Over time, the small current leakage through the metal frame will cause the GFIs to trip; next year mount them on PVC or wooden stakes.

Other than that, great start on your display and post some videos of the final result.

This is my first year with LOR and I was looking for something different for mini trees. I have a small yard and went with 10 Holidaycoro Hexa Tree Jr. I posted a link of the test. I used 2 CMB24D
