I posted this over at PC but thought it could be useful here also.

Here is a video I put together showing how I built the fan for this years display.

Enjoy, I hope it's useful to someone.

Don't worry, you have 11 months to work on your display before lighting up again.

I think many of us here would like to own LOR stock.

Awesome. I'm adding 32 more channels for 2008, (mega tree, some color changing angels, floods, and radio sign). I'll have to keep this in mind for 2009.

I remember seeing that in Marty's display and thought, "Wow that's cool" I really want to do that one year but, I think I would like to do the Leaping Arches first.

I hadn't realized it was made from Iron? I thought it was PVC. I guess the PVC wouldn't have the strength that the Iron does.

Thanks for the How To video..

I was worried that PVC would have too much flex to keep the tension on the lights and they would slip and sag. That's why I went with the aluminum electrical conduit. Almost as cheap as PVC but a lot more rigid.

Ahhhh. I thought that it was solid core pipe. Interesting that it's Electrical Conduit Pipe.... Hmmmm

Still on hold for now...but thanks
