  • 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.

            Farmers market "survey"
            by Linda In Phoenix
            Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
            I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
            For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

            The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

            Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

            Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

            So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
            I like the fact...

            Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
