    Default Snowflake/Spinner Addition For 2009

    I'm in the process of making four snowflakes that will add a little more to my display this year.

    All pipe and fittings are 3/4", flakes displayed are 6 feet tall/wide with the being nearly three feet long on each side.









    Each spoke can be controlled with a channel comsumption of 8.

    Video of it in action:

    Very nice, I had thought of doing something like this for a fireworks explosion but it would require 32 channels...... maybe next year. And off of Al's question how many lights per snowflake spoke section?
    And on the 8th day, God created Christmas lights.

    240 Channels of DMX

    Al, each section of pipe is 34-36 inches long. When placed in the fitting, it will be nearly six feet tall & wide.

    LOL!

    I didn't take it down when I moved here.

    Can't put the undies on it or the whole neighborhood would laugh. I usually let the neighbors take care of that part.

    Is this the same Mel Welch I know? Where is the fire? Walter will be more than happy to help add the tikis. I'll hook you up to natural gas free of charge to cut down on daily maintenance. I usually charge big bucks to hook up flame producing, Christmas displays but since I know you no charge.
