    Sorry!! But another arch base question

    I’m looking to build arches this year as well and I’ll probably use the same inspection tees for the base for mine so they look right to me. There are a number of posts on this site on arches but I found this one particularly useful...

    Lawrence Drive Lights 'Junior' Mega Tree

    I’ve been eyeing off those pliers and with a couple thousand pixels to do for the tree I just might need to buy one to save my hands! And thanks Dreamin, I hadn’t thought of warming up the strip in the sun to soften it a little.

    Lawrence Drive Lights 'Junior' Mega Tree

    Hi. Awesome post! I was wondering if you know of anything similar that would work like the jig for the pixel strip (not the pusher)? Unfortunately I don’t have access to a 3D printer or know anyone that does. I’ve also seen the idea of using a drill press but alas don’t have access to one of...

    Answered Diff Receiver Issue

    Thanks for the help everyone. Prof, your idea worked! I had expanded the ports as smart receivers and now having switched them back to standard ports the issue has gone. Thanks again!

    Answered Diff Receiver Issue

    Hi everyone I have been playing around with a couple of my diff receivers the last couple of nights and have encountered an issue I can’t seem to wrap my head around. As soon as I power up the receiver the first 8 pixels light up. It is always the first 8 and they are always in the same order...

    Mega tree with portable hole

    I was looking at the ASAP system too but like you said it seemed to be all US based so I decided to go with the winch instead. That was my concern with the auger anchor as well, very rocky at my place so I might avoid that type of anchor and look at the one you linked. Given the height of mine...

    Mega tree with portable hole

    Hi all I have started to put my mind towards how I am going to construct my mega tree. Given I am not yet certain of the placement this year and we may be redoing the front yard next year I am thinking I will go with the portable hole 2.0 as the base of the tree with the option of cementing a...

    Power injection - Automotive cable

    Thanks Daryl, good pickup on the length. Found other suppliers with similar costs for 100m length and same cable diameter. Would this cable be alright for power injection though?

    First Pixel Order

    Hi Albrador Yes that email is still correct, I used it only this week to ask for a quote. And yes it is that simple, you can also send him links to the products you want. You generally do save a bit on postage and if you keep the order under $1000 (someone correct me if I’m wrong) you don’t have...

    Outdoor power points

    Thanks for your replies everyone good to hear I was on the right track! I will be using different circuits but I hadn’t even considered in rush so that is good to know. The way my display is set up I would probably be staggering powering everything up so I don’t think that will be a problem. At...

    Outdoor power points

    Hi everyone I’m looking at getting a few outdoor power points installed for my display this year as I currently only have one outside which is used for my water tank pump. I am trying to get an idea of how many I realistically need for my display. My display will be using around 10-11 psu’s...
