  1. If you're still looking for something, the Feit lights at Costco are very nice. The normal incandescent ones are $49 for 50 ft, they come down to $35 pretty often. They also have an LED version that can be switched to other colors, the warm white is pretty good. It's not as nice as the incandescent but it's pretty nice. http://www.costco.com/Feit-48ft.-LED-Outdoor-Weatherproof-Color-Changing-String-Light-Set,-Black.product.100306514.html
  2. I love the idea of J channel, but I'm struggling to figure out how to do it. I had found the previous topic about this, but when I went to lowes and found 5/8" j channel and took a C9 socket and unscrewed it, I couldn't jam the socket in like shown in the picture. It bent the J channel and would no longer lay flat. I felt like I have to shave off some of the socket flare to make it work, or I might be able to get them in, but they wouldn't all be pointing out the same way. Are people using larger J channel like 3/4" or maybe they use C7's instead? Thanks for your help, I'm looking to add my roofline in 2017.
  3. Where is your house?

    I live in S. Tulsa and also have a display, almost 23,000 lights, running on almost 12,000 channels.  6827 E. 83rd, from 81st & Sheridan, enter S. 70th from 81st.

  4. You said cool white, but that picture at least looks very similar to the target lights I have. http://www.target.com/p/philips-led-mini-lights-red-green-white-60ct/-/A-14513805 Wrapping with M5's are not as easy as 5mm, it was a pain when i did it last year.
  5. Hello Everyone- I'm in the South Tulsa area and interested in purchasing more SPT-1 zip cord bulk wire. TTM Cabling took over for LightYear cable, which I've purchased from before. They have a minimum of $100, soI'm looking to split an order & shipping with someone. They sell 1000' pull boxes of brown spt-1 wire for $78/box + shipping. Does anyone want a box in the Tulsa area for that price? Let me know. Thanks.
  6. I bought some spt-1 brown from lightyear cable and it was great, but they seem to have closed. I'll call burton cable on Monday, thanks for the info.
  7. I'm interested in green or red. Let me know if you have any when you take your display down. I could use M5 or G12's would be great, C6's may work for me as well. Thanks.
  8. Maybe you've already seen it, but 75% off starts at Walmart Today. I bought a bunch of 50 count WW LED's for projects. The one by my house was picked over, but I went to a lower volume walmart and they were stocked. Now I need some 50 or 60 count reds, those are hard to find at big box stores. Enjoy.
  9. Did anyone make a video about this? I'm interested in pursuing this. Thanks.
