There is a few videos in the dropbox links above.
Working on my secondary control box which will sit under my mega tree.
Neat setup for the box, one question tho, ventilation???, cheers
Will have intake vent on the right where the little cut out is and fan out on the left.
Well I stuffed up the hole spacing for the cable glands and now have a new box!
Also cut down to 3 power supplies, the fourth was for expansion but not required this year.
Almost finished now.
Been working away on more bits and pieces...
This is my main remote power box, work in progress...
Partway through the build of my portable hole for my mega tree, 100kg of concrete in this
Got my 8 Boscoyo snowflakes mounted up on some plastic lattice

Getting a mate to build a topper for my mega tree, heres a WIP shot
I decided to use trunking for my house/window/roof and gutter lines. I find it very easy to drill using my homemade jig and no need to worry about the "twist" you can get with conduit.
So I found a way to move my portable hole around (thank god!)
Using a hand trolley I ratchet up off the front tie downs to slip the trolley plate underneath.
Then ratchet the back taught to lever it up and roll it around, still friggin heavy!
Next step is to cut my flagpole to length
Here is my completed topper, pretty happy with the result.
I deliberately got my star pole placed at the front so I can mount the star further down toward the top of the strings if it looks better.
Bit the bullet this morning and cut my pole to length for my megatree. Its 4.6m allowing for the 60cm height base.
As you can see in the pics I need to do a bit of pruning curbside

Looks great, good job
