  • 24 Volt Bulbs For Mini Lights

    As many of you know, I do schwibbogens. My German relatives have seen some of my work and want me to make them a schwib.

    I use a 10 light strand of white wire mini lights with 12 volt bulbs. I now need a 10 light strand of white wire mini lights with 24 volt bulbs.

    This is probably no problem in Germany but alas I'm not in Germany.

    I know I can go the battery route, but I'd prefer to go with 220 volt house current.

    Any help would (do you hear me Rolf) be appreciated.

    Can't remember the exact website, but look up "Chicago Miniature". If my memory serves, they were a supplier of small light bulbs and sockets in just about any voltage/amperage rating you could think of.
    When I was in the electronics biz, they were listed for a short time as one of the company's "specialty retailers".
    When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
    Too early to leave, too late to call in.

      You could use 2 strands wired in series. If it is wired correctly, it will be half brightness with 110v

        I am at a loss for this one. But I think my future lighting direction will be with LED's
        I will power them with the plug in power supplies.
        The LED's I have in mind have built in filters so that you don't get that blueish light but a natural white lite.
        I just have not had time to sit down and find the right ones and draw up a wireing schematic.
        This wall unit in my livingroom has LED strip lighting I have find what led was used.

            After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
            I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

            Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

            Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

            Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!

            When I try to upload pictures, why is there an X next to upload attachments? I hate computers.
