    Scott,

    The CDI plugs and sockets are for SPT1 wire.

    What Al is posting in this thread is for SPT2 size plugs and sockets

    What type/size wire are you using?

    Al, Assuming 50 connectors per bag, the quantities you have listed for me are good. Are there different colors available ?

    Scott, if you group multiple strings of lights on a channel, you may need more females than males. This doesn't happen when the lights are strung together (since you can just plug them together. But if you have any distance between them, you may need to make up cords with multiple females attached at various locations along the cord(s). I miscalculated this for my first year since I had only 96 channels. Particularly when I wanted to join all the lights in my blowups into one channel. This year I am also going to use more females make new replacement pigtails on the LOR controllers. I had a terrible time making all the connections under my mega-tree with the darned short pigtails that come with the LOR controllers. So I will make much longer ones from SPT2 wire.
    Thanks,

    Al -

    Thanks. Charity and I were just discussing this at dinner Friday night, wondering if this was going to happen. I think she's starting to get more addicted to the blinky flashy than I am.

    I take it you're back in town to warm up from your trip in the frozen tundra of Canada? You know we ordered this heat just for you!

    I think the two bags of each gender plugs are enough for me, considering I have some left over from last year and still have a lot of extension cords from my Mr. Christmas days. I hope they will be, anyway.

    Uh, I have some SSR-4's that I need female connectors on; please increase my female connector bag count by one for a total of three (3) bags of female connectors and 2 bags of males.

    Thanks!

    Jack, thank you for reminding me that I didn't order any connectors for the DIY stuff. I would have used up all of my connectors and had none for extension cords. I had a little difficulty adjusting to the heat again. The low temperatures were nice but the bugs were beyond belief. If I have a choice between heat and bugs, I'll pick the heat.

    Al - the fact that I did some DIY stuff came to me while I was typing "I don't need anymore" and I realized that I might.....I'm happy to help you out there as well. You have a few more SSR-4's than I do. After hearing what you're using them for, I sort of wish I had ordered more. Not to fear; more build-it-yourself DMX DIY stuff should be here later this week (USB-DMX dongle, 4 16 channel DC cards) I expect the iDMX1000 next month (try-for-free deal)

    Let's see; bugs biting you, leaving welts......sweat rolling down your face, feeling like bugs are crawling on you, frying your brain so you think you're being bugged, but at least no bug-carried diseases (heat stroke isn't bug carried)....uh, oK, I vote for the heat as well, as long as my AC units keep working.

    The order has been placed and will arrive by Monday Aug 2, 2010 . The cost per bag (50 connectors) is $27.50 plus $0.88 shipping= $28.38

    Male Plugs:
    Al: 5 bags (4 green, 1 white)
    Jack: 2 bags
    Bruce 1 bag
    Walter: 3 bags
    Denny: 2 bag White only
    Mark: 1 bag
    Scott: 2 bags
    rescue_653: 3 bags
    Total: 19 bags

    Female Plugs:
    Al: 8 bags green (1 white 7 green)
    Jack: 3 bags
    Bruce 1 bag
    Walter: 3 bags.
    Denny: 3 bags (all white)
    Mark: 1 bag
    Roger W. 1 bag
    Scott: 2 bags
    Rescue_653: 3 bags
    Total: 25 bags

    Al $357.50
    Jack $137.50
    Bruce $55.00
    Walter $170.28
    Denny $141.49
    Mark $56.76
    Roger W. $28.38
    Scott $113.52
    Rescue_653 $170.28
    Total $1248.72

    The folks living in Raleigh should pick their connectors up early next week. Mark, Roger, and Rescue_653 can pick them up at the convention or contact me. If you live near Mark and he agrees, you can give him the money and he will pick them up next week when he comes to Raleigh. Mark and I (Denny too) always seem to owe each other money from group buys. We save a tremendous amount of money purchasing in quantity. A spool of SPT 2 wire at Novelty Lights is $130-150 per thousand feet. We bought our wire for about $78 per thousand including shipping. Group buys are the way to save tons of money, but it does require buying stuff when you "don't need it".

    Starbuck's time again? I'm in no rush; I can wait until the convention, but I'd hate to see you haul them down there just to have me (and others) haul them back up this way.

    Works fine when I click on it. Oh, I figured it out. You need to turn off your monitor, spin in your chair 3 times (not 4), while chanting the preamble to the constitution.
