    Gutter Clips

    What about the good old cup hooks? I use 25 mm ones screwed into the conduit every 750mm and just hook them over the lip of the gutter profile. Easily removed for storage .

    20mm conduit for ws2811 bullets

    No Problem @ Helty. If you need fittings you can use 20 mm pressure pvc type but there not overly cheap

    20mm conduit for ws2811 bullets

    Aren't most standard conduit lengths 4m? I prefer the the Telstra 20mm conduit which is a larger diameter ,maybe the same as 25mm standard , comes in 4.5 m length and is white. Probably worth asking the question

    Soldering strips - what size wire?

    Agreed tin your wires and use something with a little weight like a pair of pliers or in my case a garden full of river pebbles

    Really liking your posts , pictures and videos. They are well detailed and giving me lots of inspiration at the moment and Christmas has only just past..

    Lawrence Drive Lights - Arch Build (Air Seeder Tubing with Square Pixel Nodes)

    Great idea for bracing arches. Personally I find the air seeder hose naturally creates its own arch, so I just chose a diameter I liked and screwed some hex head screws through some 300mm steel edging pegs diagonally on the feet at each end. I might just use those conduit glands for another idea...

    Hi there from Sheidow Park SA

    Thanks CrazyCatLady. Unfortunately there will be no computer aided display this year due to work commitments ,but I thought I would start with the nuts and bolts at least and hopefully learn from my mistakes before diving in next year

    Testing ws2812b with arduino issues

    Ok so my first foray into pixel strip has hit a road block in the space of 2 days. Now fortunately I ordered 2 rolls of Ws2812b so I still have a spare roll to play with and a sp103e for plug and play option. Whilst the controller works fine ,it hardly blew my mind and was looking to get some...

    Hi there from Sheidow Park SA

    G'day there folks, my name is Adam and after watching a few YouTube videos I think it's time to do me some Christmas lights. I have been tinkering with dumb RGB for about 8 or so years now doing my own largish led panels,infinity mirror coffee table. I got some 6803ic last year and they started...
