  1. HAHAHAHA! I had to share that with my wife! Don't leave us hanging Don! Were you able to get all 10??!!
  2. Oh well, too good to be true!
  3. Very interested in the animated items!
  4. Hi everyone, First let me start off with fact that I know absolutely nothing about electrical things. Nothing about controllers, boards, or pretty much anything along that line. If it plugs in and lights up....great! If it doesn't, then it probably needed to be replaced anyways. However I am ready to learn. I am looking to make a single LED flash on and off with it being able to adjust the timing of it. If anyone can explain it in pretty simple terms I would be more than grateful! Thanks!!!
  5. I had a big snow globe a few years ago and of course some kids vandalized it by slashing the globe part right in the middle of the globe. I got a large needle and 50lb test fishing line and stitched it. It held the air and the cut was visible but barely
  6. I love it! Thanks everyone
  7. Hi everyone, Just curious if anyone has motorized the arm on this cutout from The Winfield Collection. I just received the pattern and plan on making the arm go up and down. It doesn't look too difficult, but if someone else has and can explain how they did it, it would save me the usual 10 trips to the hardware store, a few swear words and a bunch of "I told you to ask for advice" from the wife! Much thanks and hope everyone is doing great! I
  8. I had the big snow globe and it ripped in the front. I used a needle and fishing line to stitch it together. Held up well with very minor air leak that didn't affect it at all.
  9. I bought the Disney countdown clock and it was great. Held up well and was plenty bright. However when I bought it back in November, I had to return it twice due to it not being able to focus.
  10. I bought the Disney countdown at Lowes back in November.  Worked great and is well built.  However, I had to return it twice and exchange it for one that worked.  Out of the box it was a blur and could not be focused no matter what.  But when I got one that worked, it worked great with no issues!

  11. That is so AWSOME qberg! Very well done. I know have my goal for next year!! Great details on how you did it! Quick question. Which version of PowerDirector did you use? (just want to make sure I get the right mask). Hopfully you can post your video. Again very well done!!
  12. Anyone know how many lums it projects? Thanks!
  13. I've used the LED Keeper tool. It actually worked for me (unlike the non led one). It helps pinpoint the problem spot that either is the bulb or a loose wire at a socket. Here is a link to it on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/LED-Keeper-Light-Repair-Tool/dp/B007H4I8HY. Hope this helps!
  14. Here is a link that I used to make it. On the back side you just mount the motor as usual. I used a 1/4 piece of wood cut in a circle, then drilled four holes in the edge to mount the 4 pieces of wire that I painted black. I had to counter sink it so I could get the wood to stay tight on the motor. Then used 4 styrofoam balls. Turned out great. I believe it was Dano who came up with the design.
  15. Lol! Qberg, we think alike. I found runway landing lights about 8 years ago and have them up on my garage roof with a santa in a airplane inflatable at the end on the roof line. I also built the juggeling santa with the snow balls too! I love the presents on the tree stand. Going to have to look into that one. I have always followed your projects too scott. I don't think I can do the animatronics like you have. I'm lucky if I can plug the wiper moter in! Thanks again everyone! I love the ideas!!
