  • 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".

      Chase,
      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.

            Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

            How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

            I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

            First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...

            I think that it important for any business to keep track of what their customers are concerned about. If a business ignores such things, they will suffer in the long run. Ignoring comments in your own forum or not replying to emails is not a good strategy. Good companies are always on the lookout...

            Thanx Rolf. I also found a package of Olson 3/0 blades I had. They are 33TPI x .008T x .022W
            I’m guessing that’s their equivalent of a puzzle blade since they don’t sell one specifically labeled as such....
