  • 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.

            Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

            My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

            I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
