Since my display is almost entirely LED, I'm using a "poor man's" slip ring to light up my carousel and ferris wheel. Pictures can be seen here: www.santatrain.com

It uses a 1/4" Phone plug & jack and has been tested on a drill press for well over 100,000 revolutions. See attached.

Happy New Year to all.

Looks like you've got a great setup going! Looking at the pictures and descriptions, it looks like you have several neat features which are animated. Also, in one of the top photos, it looks like your immediate neighbors decorate as well! Very cool!

Hey azfrankp -

Your display looks like it would be a lot of fun to sit out in front of and watch for quite awhile. Nice job!
